I own a pair of brown wool tweed and a pair of gunmetal cords, both Walts. Back pocket stitching on the wool tweed trousers has come apart in a manner that can't be cheaply repaired and the white pocket fabric now peeks through. On the cords, the fabric around the inner thighs and crotch is wearing thin - any day this could be a source of embarrassment. Both are less than two years old and worn less than 30 times.
Same as you, these are cube-dweller pants. Luck of the draw, I suppose.
