I couldn’t tell you if they’re actually worth the money because I’m new at buying clothes that don’t fall apart after a couple months of wear. They are incredibly heavy duty,, I poke all kinds of holes in my jeans messing with fencing but these hold up real well. They fit better than anything I own, but I went a little on the baggy side so I don’t know about any closer fits. I’m 6’0 194 lbs and I got a large, probably could’ve gotten away with a medium but I like the extra room. Don’t know if they’ll hold up for a lifetime but it sure seems like it.
