Assuming you haven't sized down to the point where you're blowing it out, it should last years. I know people who ride motos, do crazy work, etc. and their jeans last multiple years for sure.

That said, these have gotten super soft and are thinner in the thighs/knees now. I don't wear them quite as much now, in order to prolong their life.

Here's the same pics, plus a shitty fit pic, in full size (posted from phone earlier & didn't realize that shrank the image) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I wear mine 3-4 days a week. If I weren't wearing them what the hell else would I do with them?

Posted these on the RRL thread. Thought you folks might care to see. RRL low straights, three years old, two tub washes. Extra dirty from a full day of yard work. Third wash the other night and now for some crotch repair.

I got this pair of SDA lightweight jeans from tate+yoko (the only store with my size still) about a month ago. It's an incredible pair of jeans with tons of character and I want to give the model some exposure.

The basics: Tagged W32", 11oz, mid rise, right hand twill, unsanforized, one wash, indigo rope dyed, pigskin patch, bar tacked back pockets (no rear pocket rivets)

Fit Pics [1] Detail Shots! [2]

These are very much jeans for the summer; the weave is malleable and the fit loose and breezy. At this point they are really soft and drape with some rolls and loose creases. The fit is by far the most comfortable I've worn and offers free mobility. I've washed these again (they came once washed) after 2 weeks without a belt because they stretched. The unsanforized fabric goes from around 33" waist after a wash to 34.5." The inseam is way too long right now, around 35" and my natural is 31"... I'll get to that after finals.

The most unique aspect of these was the thread for the warp. It had a bunch of randomly-placed bundles of extra cotton coming out of the thread, kind of like nep but on the indigo thread instead. At first I thought they were pills, but they are more like natural defects from packing together tons of cotton while spinning the yarns thin. Most of the bundles have rubbed off by now, enhancing the layer of fine, long indigo hairs covering the entire jeans. For me, this is a reason buying unsanforized denim is fun. I didn't know what was in store, but these jeans have already evolved.

Just the regular ones, I'm not very active in the cold season haha. I wanted to send them back in to get hemmed again since I have to double cuff it now. I wanted to get all the shrinkage out which was the only reason for the wash really, but I'm glad I did it now as the blue is now more my flavor. They are just toooooo dark at first
