Great work! Ironically, I'm holding off on washing with my latest pair of Ooe's, I may make it to a year yet, no wash (going good since starting them in July)!

How is the new denim compared to their previous stuff?

This is some XX4 fabric left in my washing machine for around 3 months. I'd describe it as among the fastest fading of any of the fabrics before it, and less stiffer/hairier than XX3 (which I found a bit too stiff/heavy feeling). The original O.A-XX fabric is still my favorite (XX1 if following the same format) as it yields some crazy good vintage fades, but I'm excited to see how my XX4 fabric will turn out. I'd rank them as a faster fading O.A-XX, and my second favorite of the four (followed by XX3 and XX2) for whatever it's worth!
 

Past fabrics described by Neil and S&S:
"These are done up in an all-new XX3 fabric, which, typical for OA, is very subtly different from their previous XX2 denim. The XX3 fabric feels a bit hairier and stiffer than the XX2, but the shrinkage is the same between XX2 and XX3 fabrics. It also has a grey weft compared to the white weft on the XX1 fabric."

"Speaking of the fabric, these are made from Ooe's new XX4 denim. The product of years upon years of research, these are a 13.5oz, 100% cotton, 7x7 selvedge denim with a white ID, loomed in Japan exclusively for Ooe, and to their exact specifications. The warp threads are dyed with a green-cast indigo, specifically chosen to age like sample fabrics from the 1940s - with gray weft threads selected for the same purpose. Slightly hairy and surprisingly soft (even while raw) these are a comfortable mid-weight fabric that fades relatively quickly and can be worn almost year-round."

Wow thanks, awesome response. I’d love to get a pair, but those inseams from holk look absurdly short.

Standard & Strange has a pair coming up, but it'll be Cone denim in a 1927 saddlepant cut (though the inseams will likely be longer):
