Should I repair or discard? HALP

Alright guys, first time poster long time lurker here.

I've been wearing the crap out of this pair of 633 ODs (18oz) for the past year and a half or so. They fit me great when I bought them but I put on 10lbs or so (and I usually put weight on in the butt and thighs) and I put these things under some undue stress in the crotch region. I tore one side open and had it repaired, then the other side of the crotch started to go not even a week later. Probably should've just had both sides repaired at the same time.

I noticed the repair job is somewhat sand papery on my thighs and can irritate my skin if my underwear get bunched up, exposing bare skin to the repair. I figure it might "break in" and get more pliable down the road.

I've lost the aforementioned 10lbs and then some, so these are actually comfortable to wear again.

So, what do you think, should I have the other side of the crotch repaired and get more use out of these, or call it quits on them and move on to my next pair?

Thanks!

Sorry just noticed this topic just now. My advice is that you can't go wrong with buying a new pair. There are so many great pairs of Iron Heart to just have one.

I've had jeans repaired multiple times in a lot worse state than this. If you like them, fix them. If you're in the US then use Rain at Indigo Proof. She's a goddess when it comes to this kind of thing. https://www.indigoproof.com

I have this same issue with my 21oz 633s, my all time favorite pair. I had them darned in the crotch and they are so uncomfortable they are almost unwearable.
