Well, this might be a bit late for some folks but just in case...

- As I mentioned in another post, I am a true waist size 31 (15.5").
- In most IH denim, I wear a 32 based on personal preference for fit (e.g. some room in the waist).
- In most IH denim, the downside of a 32 for me, is the fit through the legs is a bit roomier than I'd like.

I recently picked up a pair of these (666SB) in a 29 and the fit is perfect for what I was looking for. No problems buttoning, top block was initially a little snug but loosened really quickly. Within a few days, fit was very comfortable. The measurements provided by IH, are spot on.

- 29 in these will fit like a 31, over time.
- 30 in these will likely fit like a 32, over time.

Just my findings but likely vary per body type. Hope this helps.

Take care,

KS

 

bringing this thread back to life for a bit. i found a pair of these on grailed tagged 30, problem is i comfortably wear a 31 from the original run of IH-666s. can anyone attest to a 30 fitting like a 32 over time?

my 31 fits a little loose in the waist but a little snug around the thighs/butt after just washing

Product pages, measurement tables and product threads are your friends. You should find all the info you need there to compare your W31 666s with the W30 666SB. Generally speaking 2" of stretch can be a big ask but is doable in some fabrics (most notably the standard 21oz).

Yeah I went back and forth with measurements, unfortunately wasn't able to convince myself to pick these up. I washed and put on my falling apart IH-666s and decided I didn't want to squeeze my thighs into a 30.

For any short person like me out there looking for a really really good condition IH-666SB, check out Grailed!  ;)

Sounds like you made the right decision.
