The stretch selvedge slim fit jeans are really good. So comfortable and the fit is spot on. Nice and roomy in the thighs with a taper that isn't too strong. I don't know why I ever buy designer jeans when these are just $50. I'm guessing the raw stretch selvedge denim won't fade a ton, but these are so much more comfortable than my APCs.
Not sure if it is bad luck - I have worn a pair of black stretch selvage slim cut jeans regularly for a few months (well, twice a week with a holiday in the middle where they got regular wear?), washed it a couple of times... And it just looks so ragged from that, it has aged noticeably (not just fading). I might have to donate it soon at this rate...
The Momotaro and Nudies I have also worn regularly recently have held up far better - obviously a big price difference with the former, but bought the latter on sale for usd50-60 which isn't too far away from uniqlo jeans.
Ymmv. I do like the stretch slim cut and they're comfortable, but feel like the denim quality is nowhere near the kaihara uniqlo jeans I bought a few years ago (which had good solid denim but not such a great cut in slim fit). So mixed feelings I suppose?
