Diesel: Good Jeans Die Young

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello. I'm an HF veteran and I am here to rant about jeans ripping and becoming essentially useless.

 

In the past few years these following pairs have become destroyed in the following order:

 

- Zaf 796 - 2008

- Zathan 71j 2009

- Viker 71j (within a year of ownership) 2009

- Zatiny 8WM (within a year of ownership) 2010

-  Zatiny 88z (had it for a little over a year now) 2012

 

All of these jeans have developed tears near the crotch area and eventually holes grew and became unwearable. Zatiny 88z just got its 1st rip today.

 

I got the Zaf's patched from the inside and that was fine. Patching wouldn't look good with 88z though imo. Certain jeans you don't want to look messy. 

 

I will say though, I wore both Zatiny pairs almost daily so I guess they did their duties. It's sad though that you'd have to wear your jeans less for them to last longer. It's a shame.

Also depends on how much you wash them...if you do every 3/4 wears, no wonder they rip...

 

Washing them too much alters the fibers...

 

Anyway, I never kept a jean so long that it would rip when wearing it...always end up beeing tired of them or eventually change my style so I sell them...and I wash them as less as I can. As I have a good jean collection, i have a big rotation,so they don't end up like "hobo style"...like if i was wearing the same jeans every day over a year....

I can't say I have ever had the ripping problem either, apart from the ones I have ripped in the crotch on purpose! 509.gif
