It's nice to see that a company will still stand behind it's product. I bought a pair of these 501's (which are fairly on the hipster side for me) and was quite happy with them. I live the classic look of a dark denim, the fit and the button fly that I always used to insist on as a kid. After a few days of wear, I blew out the crotch while running around my parents farm yard. I mean completely blew it out: from the crotch to the knee. I tweeted Levi's, got a contact number and started the return process. Without question, I received this nice new pair via FedEx. Good on ya Levi's.
