Wearing & Tearing « A Continuous Lean.
GAP says the denim is “Japanese” which I suspect to mean Japanese inspired, but made in China. Not that it really matters in this care, nor do I care. This was an experiment. Besides, those French jeans are made in Macao and cost $140. The point was: “Were the $300 jeans I am buying that much better? Could a $54 pair from a huge chain wear-in and look good?” I brought the jeans home, tried them on and then proceeded to wear them everyday for about 11 months straight. Those GAP jeans wore in amazingly.
I own a pair of these and can second this assessment. These are my favorite pair.
