I've been wearing these jeans everyday with the exception of a few days of unbearable heat and humidity in Singapore, and they continue to perform excellently. I now feel strange whenever I have to wear another pair of pants, I've become so accustomed to these jeans.
Nothing to much to add, except that I'm incredibly satisfied with the fading of the natural indigo in all of its lovely shades of blue. I'll be putting these through hell when I take them to Joshua Tree this weekend.
Thanks again to those who have been sending lots of encouragement and compliments my way. It's much appreciated.
