how is the rise on bb's compared to 634's?

From the webpage:

  • Slightly higher rise and more fitted top section than the IH-634S

But all measurements are under the Sizing" tab

Ordered a 32 since it matches my 33 Beatle Busters. I'm really excited but kind of sad I won't be able to spend more time with my current pair once the comp starts.

So how warm / breathable is this denim?
From everything I've read it's not very breathable.
I've got the 634S-B and the grey weft loomstate 633S from SelfEdge.
I can wear those most of the year here, aside from the Texas summers.
But if this denim is much less breathable than the other IH pairs I already have I might have to skip out.

It is way less breathable as the 21 oz.  Though I personally already find these too warm in the summer. So it depends on your Preference.
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

From everything I've read this denim is not very breathable at all. Sorry Broark.

The UHR are very warm to say the least.
I will not be wearing them during the summer here in the south of Sweden.

It will definitely be a challenge to wear these year around. How was the MBB's on breathe-ability? Maybe it would've been nice to do those again?

So short answer is, this denim does not breathe...

Last time I checked. This was for the super heavyweight division. They will be a beast to break in, but that's the challenge/fun right?

Thanks for the feedback, that probably means that I'll have to skip on these.
Unfortunate but it's hard for me to wear heavy denim year round. Those 100+ degree days are tough.
But hey, who knows, maybe I'll grab a pair and tough it out! Still undecided.

This may be a silly question, but what exactly is the DWC? Ive been to the website a few times and it tells you how to enter and loads of other stuff, but it doesnt tell you what you have to do in the actual contest.
