    i'm at 11 months and one week now and i've nowhere near crotch rip.. sized up though so i guess thats why, even though i do sag loooooads.

    i've got a little hole on the right leg on the inside leg near the ankle though

    man.. the better question as far as my pair is concerned is what isnt ripped.. The bottom is ripped, I've had 2 crotch rips, both repaired, and a 3rd one is growing.. its at a point where it isnt obscene yet, but may possibly be noticeable.

    If you own SJs and you don't have crotch rip, ur obviously not wearing em hard enough!!

    Crotch rip: A right of passage of any owner of SJs

    I've been wearing my SJDJ for 3 months and they're getting a hole near the crotch. It hasn't torn out yet, but it sure feels like it's going to. Any suggestions on what I should do about this? Should I just wait until it goes and then try to stitch it?

    you could put a patch on the inside now, that way if a hole wears you won't see through them.

    I've noticed my Dj's starting to fade a LOT on my inner leg/crotch area, but I can't see them ripping unless I do something retarded in them (IE. Sag and try to ride a bike or something)

    I'm not too worried about it. They fit slim as hell on me so I expected it to do that.

    i think so, if you're not wearing them super tight there isn't as much stress on the crotch area. It has a lot to do with how low you wear your jeans. If you sag at all, you are more prone to a rip, if you wear them up on your waist, then the opposite applies.

    I sag my jeans a fair amount, but haven't had a rip yet with either of my other fits (johns and finns...keeping in mind that they both had 2% stretch where as my jims are 100% cotton) but so far I don;t think I'm anywhere near a crotch rip (I'm at a month and change..)

    i avoided the crotch rip in my jims for a year and they were fine when I moved on my skulls. After absolutely destroying the croth on his jims, my brother then had wear my old jims successfully ripping the crotch and the knee.

    Moral of the story, don't let anyone else wear your jeans.

    I was sagging my jims, and went into an airchair freeze and tore the crotch - lol. My jims were just about ready for a wash too - probably 10 months with no wash and heavy wearing.

    Yikes did you size down on them? I went true to size with them, they're my favourite pair of non-indigo jeans, don't want a crotch rip in them :(

    my SJDJ have lived a hard life and are on the side lines of my desk awaiting repair again!

    total of 4 crotch rips! Last one from bowling was going a little too crazy if thats possible.

    one in each quarter of the crotch now.
