You must have never bought a pair of the cotton/linen Mabitex that everyone is talking about then. I'm 6'4", 185 lbs, not fat at all, and I had one pair rip right up the back just like everyone else. It was a 100% cotton pair that I bought here on the B/S, so I couldn't actually see or feel the fabric until I got them in the mail. I could tell right away the quality was much lower than all the previous Mabitex I bought (I have about 10 pair). I put them on for the first time at home to try them on, bent over once, and that was it.
Has anyone ever had this happen to a wool pair? So far it looks like most of the complaints have been from cotton or cotton/linen pants. Also, it doesn't look like any of these Mabitex threads are hurting sales at all. I just sold 2 wool pairs on B/S in a matter of a couple hours.
I think Mabitex used to be made in Italy, but now most of the newer ones are made in Romania.
