I wasn’t in a hurry so I just smiled under my mask and thought “bet the forum will get a kick out of this.”

The UHR is legendary for that. XHS works too. I’ve also seen what Wesco’s do to the scanning machines. They light up like Times Square

Nothing planned, but we will remake these jeans in the future

Hello, while waiting for the 555 version to restock I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I’m in love with high rise cuts after buying a pair of Oni Secret denim in the 926 cut size 29.  Waist on the Oni’s are 29.5 and thighs are 11.4.  I feel with more wear the waist will stretch out to at least 30 as the denim feels like it has a lot of give in it.

I want to size down to a 29 for the IH 888 Bc I feel like the measured 30s in stock will eventually stretch out too much and I’m trying to keep the thigh and knee as tight as possible if my waist can handle it.  You guys think post initial wash that I can get the 28.9 to 30? Or should I buy the 30s and  try to shrink it as much possible so post wash and stretch they won’t go over 31?

Thanks

I haven't had much luck trying to shrink XHS. They shrink temporarily but will always stretch back out and then some. But it is possible to stretch the waist on a pair of IH at least two inches. I'd go with the smaller size @Tightisright

Rule of thumb with XHS is that post shrink/stretch they’ll end up at the start again, or slightly larger.

Which is why we say more or less exactly that in the product description.

Thanks for the sizing insights!  After too much analysis paralysis I decided to just order the size 30.  I can’t wait to receive them!

There was no remake planned in October and no announcements that they are on order, so no time soon I’m afraid.
