Thick and stretchy denim like 8WW
They are listed as 100% cotton on the tag, but they are thick and stretchy... weird. Another one is the new Thavar 807C - 100% cotton, but they are thick and stretchy, too. Received mine today. I dare say you could size down with both of these pairs to get a more snug waist fit.
Btw I'm not talking about which jeans will stretch, but which jeans are stretchy, for example having 2% elastine. But also being thicker than normal. 8ww was like that. pretty thick, 2% elastine
Dieselisious, 8ne is the opposite definition of stretch

Just to clarify - yes, both the 804M and 807C aren't stretch (as in a cotton-elastane blend), but they do have a little give in them (feel 'stretchy') right off the bat even though they are 100% cotton. When I put it on for the first time, my 807C felt a tad roomier than my 888P, which comparatively felt stiffer and tighter when I first put it on. Both pairs of the same waist size and leg length. The 807C is in no way your typical tight, rigid, run-small 100% cotton jean like the Shioner 74Y or the Thavar 8X2, is what I'm saying - it feels like it has more give and is comparatively roomier in the waist and leg, even when you pull on a brand new pair. So for a fit that's more snug, one might consider sizing down. The last post by Pryv75 in his review of the 807C explains what the jean is like. Hope this clears any confusion up. Cheers.

Phukette, yes 8y0, but now 2 layers thicker
Chinotto, I now know what you mean. I think it's that pair that is like this. I recently tried 2 brand new 8x2's. in one pair I could move more freely, and 1 pair was really stiff. Excact same size. I also had the same experience with several 74k's. But I was talking about a real stretch denim, those which you can sleep in
No worries, buddy. Yes, those two pairs I talked about felt kind of 'soft' right out of the box, despite them being made of a thick material. I wore my 807C out for the whole day today and they've already loosened up a little bit more.
In any case, there are a couple of new Shioners on the Europe online store (which you might have already seen) that are 'stretch' in the truest sense of the word - they are both cotton-elastane blends. The first is a little bit '80s and acid/marble wash-looking, the second is a clean dark basic with minimal fading. Not sure how thick the denim is though. Both are non-MII, too.
