I like the idea I won't have to take into account the initial soak...

They will shrink as although they are sanforised, they are unwashed. The 888-XHSib thread contains some good documentation of what to expect, but you’re looking at 0.5-1” in the waist and leg and about .3” in the thigh.

If I were you I’d use the “Compare” function on the website to check the measurements up against one another. Factor in the shrink and you should have an answer.

Another option is to measure your 16oz pair as they are now and publish here. Someone (possibly me), will be able to advise on the right size for the XHS based on that.

Great advice, thanks.

I'll take a look at the Compare function, but for now the measurements for my just washed (so not stretched back out) 555s-16 Vintage Selvedge Super Slim Jeans are:

Tagged 34 (worn since March 2019 with a number of washes)

Waist: just over 17 inches
Front rise: around 11 inches
Back rise: says 15 inches, but might not be measuring correctly
Upper thigh: 11.5 inches

I've been told a 33 might be good for me in this 25oz pair, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

@Kingmob31 Tag 33 looks the best shout to me. I usually aim for as close to my ideal waist to begin with when it comes to the unsanforized or unwashed denim. It'll shrink a bit with a soak, then go back right to where you need them to be.

Also, how are you getting on with your 555S-16? Mine are still a bit tight! Won't be wearing them for a while now it's approaching 25oz weather!
The devil is in the detail..

Thanks @AdamJ. Good to see you echo the other advice I've had.

As for the 555-16s. I'll see if I can upload some pics to that thread. I've worn them pretty much every weekday since I got them.
