Worn a few dozen times. No washes. No soaks. No fading. No hemming. I wore them enough to start breaking them in, but they are just a bit too small. I did wet the waistband once to try to stretch it a bit more. The waist measures more like a 32 now instead of 31. I took the photos outside before sunset so bear that in mind. If you want any other pics or measurements just let me know.
