Anyone have the experience of the jeans blowing out in the crotch? i've had 5-6 pairs of straights and low-slims that i've had each repaired/patched.

I haven't really had the problem as the denim has a good weight. It happened to my pair of one wash that I had worn for 2 years but it was more that it had developed 2 small holes so I had them patched and had the crotch reinforced.

Very strange, and i mis-labeled the fits, low-straight not low-slim.  Every pair has worn out in the crotch below the fly...and i'm humble enough to say i'm not that well-endowed!  I bought off eBay, from reputable stores/sellers.

Am i just buying the wrong fit? They're less than 3yrs old also.

No one else has experienced this?

Its normal and has nothing to do with your "size." No jeans can last more than 3 years without blowouts or in need of repairs if worn often. Did you expect them to last forever?

 

Usually this occurs from sagging the jeans and friction that occurs in that area.If you're not constantly repairing your jeans, you're not wearing them right!

LOL, well i do wear jeans every single day. i have a casual work environment.  Gives me a good reason to get a few more low-straights!

Tea staining should work best and make it look really vintage and mottled brown...

Interesting...look forward to seeing the results.

Just received these today.  The fit on the low straights is spot on with the waist on a tagged 36 measuring 36 exactly (fabric seams a bit on the ehh side) & the cardi (XL) fitting nicely as well but on the shorter side like some of the other cardigans I own of RL
