Long time no post. I've pretty much only been on the IH forum for the past few years because I honestly just can't bring myself to find much interest in other denim brands anymore after gradually replacing my wardrobe with IH over the past 5 years or so. Here's a pic dump of my IH-555 18 oz. First 2 are recent (3 years worth of wear), other 4 are about 7 months ago (2.75 years worth of wear). I've transitioned to mostly wearing IH-555-XHS-IB since earlier this year, so these 18 oz haven't gotten a ton of wear in those recent months. I can't believe how much life these have given me. I wear my jeans pretty hard, and I've never had another pair of non-IH jeans go beyond 25 months of wear. All but one of my non-IH have been wrecked in 17 months or less, and I'd need another ~6 months on these 18 oz 555 to get them to the point of where that 25 month pair was at (the Samurai 710 19 oz that I won the sub-21 oz HWDC2 with years back). Really can't say enough good things about IH. The durability is vastly superior to other jeans I've had.
