I've been wearing mine for 10 months now and I'm very happy with the fade, cut and feel of the fabric after so many months. I haven't washed them either but have been soaked in rain so it brings a bit of character on the thighs. I was thinking of also trying APCs and Nudies just to compare cuts and quality when a sale comes along.
I'm new to these forums and Im so glad I found it. Been looking for something like this for ages.
In saying that, Australia is horrible in style sense generally IMO. Thank goodness we have online shopping.
