    Is there any way to prevent this? I don't have a problem with this but my wife has a hell of a time with it apparently.

    Sorry, there is no way around this. Its an inherent nature of denim. You can lessen it to a degree by avoiding rubbing your legs on stuff with light colours, and black denim or a washed pair transfers much less than a raw pair. You can also try washing your raw pair more frequently because the more you wear without a wash, fibers break down faster and have a higher chance of transfer.

    Certain denim transfers far less than others, and it's not corresponding to price.

    Example: Iron Heart 21 oz barely bleeds, even unwashed.
