Love them so much! Worth every penny. I've worn them every day for weeks, including daily hikes. Glad I sized down one size per instructions. I could barely zip them the first day (had to lay down on my back to get them zipped, 1980s style!), and they were uncomfortably tight the first few days of wear, but soon loosened up and are even slightly big now.
I LOVED the look and feel of the denim, but I just didn’t like the way the jeans fell in terms of how they accentuated certain aspects of my frame. Will likely try another fit sometime because I really, really, really liked almost everything about them!
Haven't worn these long enough since I just got them, and the recommendation is to wear them for 3 months before washing. However, I can say that RDW was great fantastic wonderful in working with me to get the correct size and hemming them for me. I've purchased another pair of jeans but I'll wait until they're not making face masks to send them to be hemmed. The jeans are stiff but I did get the raw denim ones. But more than all of this, I love supporting a small US business. Gave it 5 stars for hte excellent customer service since I haven't had the jeans long enough to review them.
