Jeans that don't wear out at knees - do they exist

I'm fed up, all my jeans, including J-Jasper Conran ones bought just before Christmas, have worn through the knees . I wear jeans most days (sorry I'm boring) but don't really want to go around with holes.

Is this just cheap or thin jeans do you think? Any suggestions for ones that will last more than a couple of months, should I go for proper jeans like Levi's or Wrangler? And if so what Levi's will fit a curvy size 12?

Or I could just get cheap jeans from Asda and keep throwng them away I guess.

My monsoon and next ones are yet to go at the knees and they are both well worn.

mine don't wear at knees at all, it must be something you are doing (!) could you try hitching them up a bit before sitting down in middle-aged man stylee?

I buy ones with some lycra in and they don't go - probably because the material stretches when I sit or kneel down.

My Jasper Conran pants split on the arse which was a little more embarrasing than a knee!

Mine don't wear out at the knees...

They split at the crotch
