That's awesome, everyone loves the new vintage 18 oz. I will keep my eyes on it. The 177 is made of the old raw 18 oz from the first 666S though but has been onewashed.

Don’t know why I thought that they were the exact same denim,but on the first page for the shirt it says “It’s now made from the same denim as the IH-666S,maybe that’s what confused me.

If the new 18 oz denim feels similiar to the old raw 18 oz it's definitely a winner 8).

It’s definitely different, but that doesn’t take anything away from it.

The vintage is better in my humble opinion...

Might be hard for me to,accurately,compare 2 different denims across 2 different garments. Obviously the basic similarity is the weight.

I do like the OG 18 oz. It’s classic Haraki-san with its even, uniform surface. It fades very nicely too. But the Vintage style is much more fun. Fuzzy, crunchy and spits out indigo like it’s allergic to the stuff. It’s like a lighter weight UHR.

I think these will be really great for riding during the warmer months,and be pretty easy to wear chaps over when it’s chilly in the AM. Also the cut with a little extra thigh and knee room will be more comfortable sitting on the bike for long periods of time. The denim on the 177 feels more substantial,tougher for lack of a better word. They’re very close in color. When cuffed and worn with Wescos,you get that 50s biker kind of look. My question is.-If I were to get the 18OZ raw denim and wash them at home would it ever actually be the same as the factory one wash?

These landed this week and I soaked them and left them to dry before leaving town until last night.

This is a Hall of Fame denim. The 21 will always be special to me, but I love this slubby, hairy, rough, neppy denim and that it is stitched together in tank-like fashion. Perfect combination of denim with character, but also with durability. I've had some great denim in terms of one or the other, but this promises to kill it in both categories.

Kudos to Haraki-san for another masterpiece.
Think it, be it.

One of the many great things about this denim is how breathable it is for 18oz.  I wore mine more during the summer here in Phoenix more than I did my 14oz.

The Denim BEYOND amanzing. The color, the flexibility, the texture, and the way it molds is pure awesomeness.
