Wasn't meant for you to bite but IMO, subpar bull denim for $200+ is:
1) one wash and faded detail washes out
2) heavier denim that is rough to the touch with thinner, sometimes uneven stitching holding pieces together that does not relax over time or conform to body (research Iron Heart denim as again, IMO, this resembles a cheaper iteration of)
3) it shrinks but it supposedly sanforized (yes I've washed/soaked in hot/cold/medium etc...)
Just my opinion for $200+ jeans,...
