Thanks.  Table fixed, @Madame Buttonfly fired......

:D :D :D Somehow I doubt the veracity of the second part of this statement.

That aside, these look wonderful, measurements and all. My problem (of course) is that I've currently got 666 XHS (or UHR), 555-03 and 666D, on my theoretical to but list. And now these. Bollocks. I'm paralysed by an abundance of choices.

Btw @Giles would anyone (in the world) know anything about the stretching potential of this denim compared to the 21oz? I know all denim will stretch but my experience of the 21oz is that it stretches a lot (not bad thing imo, as long as you know about it). Is this going to move as much?

Not having to do all the work for work with Giles counts as a promotion, doesn't it?

Quick question on the 555N's.

I own a pair of IH X R&H 666S. I bought a size 31, and they've broken in perfectly. After a bit of necessary stretch, I'm really happy with where the fit has landed.

I'm considering buying some IH 555N and would have normally bought a 31 again, as I would assume the sizing is quite similar. After reading the numbers and a few reviews, it seems like the sizing is different on these, I.E:
- 666S size 31 = 32 in waist
- 555N size 31 = 31 in waist

Given the difference, would you still recommend I stick with a 31 as the rise is higher on the 555N, or would you size up?

Also, I notice that the 555N is described as having 1" stretch, but 0.5" shrinkage. Does that mean that in the end, the waist will still land at 1" larger than I started with (assuming I only cold soak them - and not very often)?
