This was the first pair of jeans I ever felt comfortable wearing over and over without washing for several weeks. Wearing the jeans in like this allowed the indigo dye to really sink in, so that once I washed them, they only mellowed a little in color, and achieved a phenomenal fit. This is no exaggeration... the fit is amazing. Sadly the top button popped off in the winter, a period of time when I put on a little weight for hibernation. I emailed naked and famous who mailed me a slew of replacement buttons. These are still my favorite jeans, a couple years later.
