Size 32, #44, grundleholes patched by Farinelli's Slow breaking in at first but after 4 or 5 months of straight wear they broke in nicely. They actually started to get a really cool almost micro cord texture to them at the end. Very slubby striations in the thighs. Total wear is probably about 14-16 months, maybe a bit more. Crotch held up like iron, I tend to blow crotches out quick. My latest Baldwins lasted about 10 months before I tore them. I got a new wallet for my birthday in 2010, you can see the two different wear patterns. Unfortunately, this started about 10 months in. At first I thought I had torn them on something, but then over a few weeks, pin holes started kind of appearing at random, up and down both legs and the pocket just disintegrated. I'm not in my twenties anymore and even though I'm still T-shirt and jeans most days, torn jeans to this degree just comes off like "damn man buy some new pants." I stopped wearing them on a daily basis sometime in late 2010. Replaced in 2011 as everyday wear with a pair of Baldwins and a pair of LVC 501s. Still wear them on occasion, they are the best fit I've ever owned and at this point they are super comfortable.
