Purchased these through a local distributor in the spring of 2015. I bought 5 pair, and was really excited to test these against other brands I've worn in the past. I've only worn these to work, and my work is mostly office oriented. This jean never really softened up after repeated washings. I'm average build, so the cut of this jean shouldn't of had any bearing since they are what I would call relaxed fit. The biggest down fall/holes are developing around the top corners of the back pockets. All 5 pair show the same stress, which now makes them hard to wear in the office, unless I don't tuck in my shirt. I don't carry a wallet in my back pocket, so I'm not sure why this has happened. Maybe this is an entry level jean, and I misread this line from its overall description. I would rather spend $15-20 dollars more and grab another style than be reduced to replacing them every 6 months.
