Yep, I found the stitching to be pretty awful on my Eastbay shorts too. Hole in the crotch junction and inner thigh in two pair within a few weeks. I bought some tights and shorts from the CompressionZ brand on amazon (linky
) and I have been pleased. I would recommend giving them a try. Was a bit wary given they're only sold on Amazon, and the name is rather daft, but the reviews were pretty positive. The seams are much stronger, material is thicker than most, and the cut is pretty good. They're not ideal but unless you're willing to drop $75+ on compression gear, I don't know if you'll find better.
