Out of the box, the fit on these was indential to my 514s, but after a week of wear they stretch out in the thigh and ass a bit (I'm comparing to my 99% denim 1% spandex 514s).
The stitching isn't THAT bad, though they forgot to stitch one of my belt loops on all the way (annoying).
Besides the exposed back pocket rivets (which I should have noticed before working on newly finished hardwood floors) the rivets and button come from the factory black, but wear off exposing a shiny copper underneath pretty cool IMO.
