Ha! Those look almost identical to a Rigid Wash grey pair that I got impatient with and decided to repeatedly wash with absurd amounts of fabric softener. My other pair of Rigid Wash are East West's that I am doing the right way in breaking in.
Problem is I have purchased 4 or 5 pairs of distressed RRL's lately and they are so bloody comfortable that I have all but stopped wearing the Rigid pair.
I must say the SA's I have dealt with in East Hampton, Malibu, and Melrose (LA) have been nothing but awesome. Especially since I have only purchased stuff on sale.
This green pair never really got comfortable. I've since purchased two pair of Bullard Field pants by Bills Khakis in the M3 fit. Similar weight and heft as Officer Chinos but actually quite comfortable. Bills had sales over the holidays for 75% off. I grabbed my 2nd pair then.
