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)

i love when people actually wear their raw denim, shit looks awesome man
and yeah, i have a pair of the cheapest n&f made and they've had 2 crotch repairs but otherwise are fine even after 3 years of very regular wear.
