A rather recent development I’ve been privy too at work (healthcare-primarily women). Never considered myself a “hipster” and I’ve learned if you fall somewhere between Lumbergh and Patrick Bateman, you’re a “hipster.” Utterly binary. Haha. So in proper hipster fashion, just received my first Roys (perhaps a natural trajectory of moving from pedestrian to extremely heavy back to light) and IH says funk this hipster and his ways and throws up a sale. Haha. “Just when I thought I was out,….”  ;) In all seriousness, can’t wait to soak these and jump in. They make my SEXIH13s 23oz look/feel like 21oz.

Fwiw to those for measurements: 2 consecutive hot soaks for 1-2 hours ea. with subsequent light agitation. Really consistent shrinkage throughout fit. Congruent with others, .5" shrinkage on average throughout. For the first time experienced appreciable "white marks" (soaked inside out) and they essentially blended in with some rubbing with dry towel. No biggie.

First pair of raw selvedge I’ve hemmed. Always marveled at how well my 666 19Ls and the like fit and they happen to be a 34” inseam. This appears to really help with “knee break” and just a much better overall drape; took me awhile to get the courage to commit to a hem as I prefer a longer inseam/stacking and have a long inseam for 6’ height, however, with heavier weight the drape I’ve learned is exponentially better even going from 35.5” to 34” inseam. Wish I got all my jeans hemmed to 34”ish. And IMHO, the 634 fit is best represented via a slim fitting profile such as the 634 SEXIH13. Measurements on mine are almost identical for these to get an idea how they ‘ll fit.
