This is my second pair of these jeans. In 2011, the fabric was much thicker and firmer. Thus they wore really well, didn't get baggy right away and had great recovery. The ones that I just purchased are soft, thin and give very easily- saggy by midday. Not to mention that the zipper seam came unsewn, leaving me with a big gaping hole. It's too bad because I liked they way they fit, look- esp. the way my old ones did. The ones I got in late January seem really tired and old by now. 2 months later.
