Did you guys decide if you were tweaking the 888’s?

We aren't at the moment, there are just too many existing 888 iterations.....Plus, it's one of our most popular cuts, we're reluctant to tamper....

First sample was ready for Selvedge Run a few months ago.  Second sample somewhere in the making.....

Happy to see this-I like the 666 and 634 but 888 is the one.

I love the 888. A tapered 634 like the SE 633 might please those folks looking for a lower rise 888.

Fair enough.

Still think the rear rise could be reduced a smidge and it would still retain everything everyone loves about the cut.

That's essentially what Self Edge's 633 is and it definitely works better for me.

They never seem as tapered as the 888. Plus selfedge measure stupid so I am unlikely to cop.

888 is a great cut as it is. The rear rise was the one thing I would tweak.

+1; 633 is my favorite IH denim cut so far.
The journey is the objective.

Are you guys going to be releasing M65s again this year?  I missed out on them last year. If memory serves, they sold pretty well.
