I am a long-time customer of Wrangler blue jeans. I purchased 4 pair from Amazon. They arrived in good time and were in new condition. The fit was more snug than previous purchases, but not sufficient to return them. However, after the first washing I noticed the top-stitching on the outside seems looked funny. Closer examination showed that the thread was already begining to fray. I retained the one pair that did not show fraying and returned the three that did. So far Amazon has refunded me for two pair. I will pursue the issue with Amazon for the third refund. I have read other reviews complaining of tighter that usual fit, so it isn't just me. All pairs showed Mexico assembly, even my old ones. I'm not sure why the fit is different, but the thread fraying issue is clearly one of quality control. I will re-purchase more jeans but I will wait until I am sure the one pair I retained will remain serviceable.
