I will say that the cut of the seat in these things is the biggest drawback. i too had the seat and waist taken in and while it helped, they do stretch so with time it just gets worse. I still love mine, tho.
Gotta add that the nature of the "contest" where you/we subject pants to a more heavy use/less rotation/less washing probably adds to this. Of course they should be able to hold up to heavy use, but any fabric--even the really heavy denims--stretches and relaxes with time, use, and lack of washing/water.
