I've had my Original Thin Fit jeans for about 20 months now. They've held up pretty well, I had a pretty significant crotch blow out during the winter when I was frolicking in the snow. I had my seamstress repair it, and they've done fine since then, but the crotch does have considerably more wear than the other parts of the jeans. They have faded very nicely over the months, I have worn them pretty consistently and washed them 4-5 times now. The jeans are quite slim fitting in my opinion, and I've been contemplating moving on to another pair of jeans that are looser fitting. If anyone is interested in buying a used pair of Original Thins' in size 28 message me.
@Burt Bondy I've never seen tencel denim either; looking around online did not help answer things I would want to know--weight and fading properties, primarily. I'm not big on the starting color of those in the online pics, but they're so different from place to place, so who knows on that front. You could always call Raleigh and ask them about that fabric. I guess if you got a pair, it'd be an experiment.
I carried out an online serch as well and came up blank. Its certainly a mystery this 'tencel' denim.
