Think you need to get some heavier denim if you are doing that in 5 months

Possibly. Only washed them now as I've gone through a knee so needs repairing

£400 jeans, 5 months of wear and the knee goes. Laughing out loud No wonder they're so renowned for their quality.

If youre going to chip in with that as a second post you should at least make sure you know what you're talking about. As spitfire suggested the hard wear would be more suitable for a heavier denim rather than it being A quality issue. And they cost about half what you suggested

visvim jeans have been shit quality since conception to be fair, down to the very first pairs with the zip back pockets and stingray tags, notorious for busted seams and rips. From everyday wear, not from "puttin work (WORK)." The difference now you pay $600usd for raws, and $1000 for damaged

Visvim pricing can be steep - but raws are nowhere near 600USD - they're 26000 yen at FIL add proxy and shipping it might add up to 300USD total.

26,000.00 JPY = £175.00

You're looking at a UK or US site. That means you are paying that retailers mark-up and you are also covering their import tax. Read Massivs post again and he's talking about buying direct from Visvim.

^ This. If you're posting in this thread you're not buying your denim from End

Werent there issues with the stitching as well? Shouldnt have anything to do with denim weight.
