What happened to these poor Seleniums???

The ass is all blown out

Seller states: "Item has been worn so there is normal wear." (Does mention the tears have been professionally repaired)

THAT is normal wear???

What do y'all make of the repairs? Is that really a pro job, or could it have been resuscitated better instead of looking like a Frankenstein job?

Gives it character.

Actually, I would say that IS normal wear for Seleniums. They're highly sought after, but I've seen more ripped seleniums than non ripped seleniums. They're quite fragile just like Dorado

That's a scary thought. What's cause seleniums in the past to rip - running in them, attempting to dance in them, regular walking/sitting/climbing up stairs?

It varies depending on how tight you wear your jeans. Getting into cars is something that comes up often, but I've mainly heard that with women and not men. A lot of times the wear will be gradual. The fabric in that area will start to thin out without you even realizing it and then one day you stick your foot in or bend down to grab something and you end up with a huge tear. That's how my Dorados wore out but since I bought them knowing that they would eventually rip, I always checked them often. As soon as I noticed the thinning I patched them up from the inside to prevent further wear.

That must be a pair of Floyds. I was just discussing this on another forum. My Floyd Oxycotins are wearing at the exact same spot, although on the opposite side. My friend has the same pair and his is wearing in that area as well. I've seen a few pre-owned ones on Ebay that have the same issue. Wonder what it is....

While they are in fact the Floyd cut, the tearing is not related to the cut. It's not like the Floyd cut is more prone to ripping. It's a combination of the wash and material used. Many of the harder treated washes have ripping issues. This is probably why Dorado is so prone to ripping because there is a large difference between the lightest part of the wash and the darkest. More treatment or "abuse" is needed to get that affect which can wear down on the denim before it gets to the customer.
