I can't stand the thought of losing this pair of Jeans, I LOVE they way they fit, but they are starting to look a little ragged. I have been studying some methods to copy them and am confident I can handle that, but a big part of these pants is the fabric. It hangs just right and never needs ironing. Always looks like what I would call "dress jeans' Joannes sells their denim with both a fabric content and a weight description ( 8oz-12 oz). These pants do not seem to be that heavy denim that you would associate with working jeans, they have a much nicer feel, not so rough. But they are not light weigh either. I know the fabric content( 70% cotton, 28% poly and 2% spandex), but what else do I need to look for?
