Imagine your wife had been playing the long game here Dammo, including inventing a plausible fictitious character and copying and pasting build threads from another forum, just to one day complain about your tardy DIY, totally worth it.

That surprises me. Mine were as malleable as the fabric used on a circus marquee. Squatting was difficult.

Mine are barely fading btw. They still look like smart jeans after a year.

Circus marquee/thick jeans. They almost stood up on their own when I took them off after first trying them. They just creased at shin height and fell down, but everything else was rigid.

They are hugely stiff and heavy, but they are still actually jeans. Not like armour or bionics or something.

I've tried them on and they fit really well. I asked for them to be hemmed to a 32" inseam, which UB do for free - and they've even for some reason included the bits they cut off to do so.

I've run up and down the stairs a few times in them and they are just exactly like thick jeans. I've cuffed the bottom of the leg with a single turnup and you can notice how thick the fabric is there because they're sort of rolled up rather than turned with a flat fold.

Also, when I put my hands in my pockets I scrapped my knuckles against the pocket seam where it's double thickness, so that's a bit ridiculous.

They're labelled as a 'skinny' fit, but their skinny is just a regular slim I think. The fabric is quite shiny due to the really close weave, but otherwise, fine.

Fit:

Stupid question from someone who buys 501s, is 32oz selvedge the heaviest?
I don't know of any 32oz ones Freddie, but if they exist they must surely be the heaviest denim you could wear!

The fabric is made using the thickest yarns sized 1 and 0.5 which is the same used to make heavy carpet or sailboat sails

I did think that but needed to check. My sense of complicated wearing of jeans was tingling again.

Don't panic!

This is just for fun and not important in the overall buying jeans and wearing them long game.

Crotch blowout in my as-seen-on-Fade-of-the-Day Kuroki :(

Can probably be fixed but fixing clothes feel pikey, even though they're expensive enough to warrant fixing. I'm torn.

I've been wearing my 21oz Unbranded jeans for a few months now, long enough that they don't feel weird or horrid any more but just like really brilliant jeans. They've broken in wonderfully but don't really show any fades yet. This is probably because they haven't been washed yet I expect, and will lose loads of indigo in the wear areas as soon as they are.

I love these jeans. So much so that I was tempted to just buy another pair exactly the same when Unbranded did their black Friday free worldwide shipping recently.

I didn't though. However, rest assured these are excellent jeans and undoubtedly fantastic value at $118

I was thinking along similar lines. Mine get washed weekly, like a civilised person.

They do not. My wife barely allows farting in the house at all, if the jeans were awful I'd be out in the street.

They really don’t smell of farts or otherwise. Unless you get them wet in the rain and then they suddenly absolutely reek of crotch and fart and shame.

My UB are something months old now (18?) but they’ve barely faded. I still haven’t darned the holes on the Howies pair and annoyingly I’ve managed to blow the crotch on another pair of Levi’s. I only realised this last week when I went to a school assembly and was sat at the back on a chair and could feel a cold breeze. Luckily a teste didn’t drop out in front of the kids.

So they're basically a water-activated timestinkbomb?

Yeah

I got soaked in the rain once and hung them up to dry inside a doorframe. This meant the crotch was essentially nose height and walking through an hour later was like punched in the face. At that point they’d been worn almost daily for 6mths and everything was released in an instant.

In just one month, fades are happening!

Phone and key fades on the pockets and lap whiskers. And honeycombs at the back of the knee. When these eventually see a way they will be the dog's actual nuts.

Motherfcuker. I’ve worn mine extensively over the last 2yrs and there are barely any lines.

On the last wash (up to 4 now I think) I was tempted to wash them outside out but bottled it. They still look like smart jeans tbh.
