I bought these Levis LVC 1933 501XX jeans in December of 2012. They’re made from denim from the Cone Mills and were made in Turkey. A little over two and a half years on, they’re still hanging on, barely. I’ve worn them pretty hard in that time. In the wood shop, metal shop, while doing construction, while building architectural models, etc. So they’ve had a rough life. That said, they’ve still worn out faster than any other pair of jeans I have owned. They’ve worn through in the crotch, knees, thighs and seat. A rivet fell out of the pocket fairly early on, the stitching has come undone on about half of the pocket accurate, and there are many spots worn so thin that I’m sure another round of patches is due before too long.
