I'm sad the cut on these didn't work for me! The pair I had woud up being way too big in the waist and seat, but great everywhere else. A properly fitting pair would have been too slim in the thighs. These will most definitely fade like jeans, but not as noticeably. I have a pair of NdG khaki fine twill jeans that probably have ~4 months of wear, and they are fading pretty well.
