Yeah, I've worn them about 5 times- no wear, never soaked or washed. Just a slight color fading at the hems (very slight) and the start of some honeycombing at the back of legs. These are Cez's now BTW.
I just didnt care to go into that detailing on ebay.. you're lucky Cez, just had an offer for 225 too.
I would need a pair of 31's or 30's in these- just too big in the waist for me. Yes, the Coated Claws will be a nice replacement
I saw your pair Vonwitzleben, but I'd prefer a newer pair, like drwavedawg's.. which I may just grab too. gotta sell some more stuff first
