When I bought these jeans 5 months ago I was thrilled with the fit and how they didn't fall down at the waist when I walked. I wore them about 10 times in total and last week they completed ripped in the butt area. They were definitely defective. I've never had a pair of jeans before that didn't last longer than 6 months. So I contacted Reitmans and they sent me a generic email saying that they could only be returned or exchanged it I purchased them within 60 days. Very disappointing given how much stuff I buy from them and how they don't seem to stand by their products in the instance of a defect. I was still even considering buying myself another pair, but after having read some of the reviews below, it seems that other people have had the same issue.
