In terms of washes, Lucky jeans are certainly not as sophisticated as Diesel or Paper Denim jeans. However, they are perhaps the most durable jeans you'll ever buy. I wear jeans pretty much every day (rotating between about 8 pairs at any one time), and bang them up more than pretty much anyone, and my Luckies (I have 3 pairs) have held up longer than any of my other jeans, be they Paper Denims or 501s, Gucci or Calvins or Diesels. Lucky jeans come in a variety of fits, but are generally looser than Paper Denims or Diesels. My prefered fit is the 181 (Full bootleg, moderate lowrise). Hope that helps.
