I have the LHT's weird guys and like them a lot. They are tough to fade initially but will fade in time. I figure at least 3 months of constant wear will reveal fades. I'm 1.5 yrs into mine and they're nicely faded. I wear them on weekends only nowSent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk
Is it terry? Their tiger fleece is soft, their other sweats are notSent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk
To echo what others have already stated, better quality and construction is the short answer. I'm definitely not well-to-do but i've made the decision to buy fewer, better things than cheap items because they're cheap. Let's face it, Levi's is a former shell of what it once was and nowadays they sell mass produced garbage. When I compare my expensive denim with Levi's it's no contest. Levi's feels cheap, which is why they don't last long imo. Jeans will wear out regardless...
Definitely a shame he's closing shop. His jeans have been on my wishlist for awhile, I just haven't been in a financial position to buy a pair recently. I think it's hard for a 1 man brand to to make a living doing what he does without selling in volume. Having lots of competition is one thing but the pricing is another. I've always wondered if he'd shift more jeans if he simply lowered his core offerings to something like $200-220 and then charge $275 for his SR series....

Hemming your jeans are a necessary cost for me. I pay about $25 on average for a hem. I simply can't do a double or triple cuff and prefer a single. Any alterations beyond a hem are a waste of money. Start buying jeans that fit Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk
I like it too. Just don't have that kinda spare cash lying around at the moment Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk
@mikegnthensome were you guys planning on doing the tan plaid glacier shirt soon?
forgot to mention that, I turn mine inside out as well. I think it's important to note that we're talking about jeans. they will fade no matter what any of us do because of the nature of cotton. I'll always do an initial tub soak for new jeans but I seriously can't be bothered with tub soaks/washes for the life of my jeans. I simply don't have the patience for that.
