How long should 'worn denim' jeans last?

Bought a pair from Boden in last summer's sale, so 11 months ago. They came with rips including one knee which has only got bigger. I've not worn them much, as bought for a festival and tend to wear my smarter (Reiss) jeans which I bought at the same time and were slightly cheaper. Anyway i wore them yesterday (so about 5th/6th time) and put my hands into the back pocket and the material just gave - so I now have a massive 'rip in the back pocket. It's not in an arty or cool place (the pocket not the bum). However I think I paid £35 for these jeans - should I expect them to last?

They should last longer than that. Levi jeans will last 4 years when worn every day. So 1460 wears.
