I’m also obsessive/compulsive but I’m trying to relax as a few things have convinced me that it really is a waste of energy. As for weight, I’m at the other apex of that swinging pendulum, so will most likely wait until February when I have that issue under control.

I bought a size 40 pair of these Mad Black jeans right away when they first came out.  I noticed that the waist measurement was only 38.2 inches, but I was not concerned, as I have a heavy duty waist expander that works quite well on my Iron Heart jeans.  I soaked the new jeans in cold water before using the expander.  I was able to stretch the waist more than 2.5 inches wider. These do seem to be softer than my other 25oz IH jeans.  I would not describe them as rigid, nor will they stand up on their own.  This dark color is currently my most favorite in my IH collection.

The overdying is quite a rigorous process and takes a lot of the stiffness out of the material. The 21oz OD is also much softer and more pliable than the standard version.

I’ve been wearing these a lot. I got some food on them last night, so time for the first wash soon. Glad I got in on these if OD might be going away.

I though these would be much more popular for some reason. Was also looking forward to seeing way more pics of them.

I’d love a pair, but I have the 888S-OD and a pair of SBG’s already. There is a bit of FOMO going in though so you never know

While not the 888 cut I feel like this might be the best spot to show these off!

Mad black is definitely a good bit darker than regular OD. They feel heavier than regular 25oz, they also feel surprisingly smooth. Years ago I had picked up a pair of the 25oz 634OD and ended sending the back… I’ve regretted not keeping them, but couldn’t make them work…These definitely check that box.

Can’t wait to wear them heavy this winter… I’m Really glad I got them. It’s dark out now, but I’ll get a few pictures compare regular OD to Mad black.

There’s some lovely blue that peeks through at the knee and a few other places, but it may be hard to capture in pics.
