Omg that looks so good
Thank you! Really. The denim are definitely a little snug in the upper block, but being 100% cotton I expect them to stretch, which I think it's starting to do after just a little bit. I just hate jeans getting baggy in the waist. I can squat and climb a couple steps at once which are usual sorts of tests people do in the raw denim world so it's probably good enough.

The seekings wash is really nice. I only like light indigo denim and those are up there with the best. Wish they weren’t as skinny though.

You should likely go TTS unless your usual Cast 2 size still feels large. I've posted about this a ton by now, but I wear a 28 in Cast 2s and non-raw washes basically don't fit me because the waist ranges from 1-2 inches too large.For a better idea of measurements, a pair of my size 28 Tanuki denim are listed as follows on Blue Owl's site (they do have some variance from pair to pair):

Waist: 28.5"
Rise: 10.5"
Thigh: 11.25"
Knee: 7.25"
Inseam: 33.5"
Leg Opening: 5.75"

That pair is high tapered and the waist stretches a bit. I had them hemmed by Blue Owl to 31.5 which is the same as the Seekings denim. I could change anything about it, I'd make the thighs a touch wider. I don't know if a size 28 would be better for me, but based on the waist measurements I think it was the better choice to let the 27 inevitably stretch out. It really just depends on if you're okay with the skinny fit. What I love most about them is that the inseam is cut short enough for me that I don't lose a quarter or half inch due to having them hemmed.
