So I've had a pair of Nash straight legs for 7-8 months now. First pair of raw denim (so when/if asking questions please assume I can't answer comparison questions, etc). They haven't faded much if at all, beyond maybe my front pocket cell phone area, and I wear them at least 3-4 times a week, typically walking upwards of a mile each day of wear. They have honeycombed pretty well behind the knees but again only in texture, not in fading. They didn't really seem to stretch very much at all, they were pretty snug when I bought them and they certainly still are. However, I still dig the cut and the look, definitely pretty custom feeling, which is good because I probably have a more filled out rear end than your average guy, while still rocking a 31" waist. Anyway, I'm a fan.
