I'm not sure if the ones I own are the same on Revolve's site, but I own a pair of raw selvedge Helmut Langs. Great cut, perfect fit...until I found that the crotch was beginning to blow out after a little more than a month. I mean, I wear them a lot, but c'mon.

I agree perfect fit and a great cut.
I have a pair of the exact revolve ones, and they have been worn over a course of 4 months and there are two pea sized spots where the denim on the two back pockets is fading.
The fading is minimal, on the left pocket it is the very top right, and on the left pocket it is the very top left.
They are however one of my favorite pairs of jeans, but could be better in terms of durability.

I'll third, I'm wearing my (year-old, raw) HL's right now: real nice cut, good fit, some crotch weirdness on mine too. I took them to my tailor and had them altered at the waist, and I think I had the crotch done too - look's good now.

johnny. They're definitely a nice jean. I would say that they run slightly big. I tend to fall in the 33 or 34 range and I definitely needed a 33 in these. Go for it!

I would definitely concur with the previous posts. IMHO the fit is great, quality is fairly decent, and the cut seems to be a rather flattering one. All in all I would emphasize that you can't go wrong picking up a pair of these.
