I'm with you all the way.

Old, frayed Bills are great beach and boat pants.

But they get that way soon enough. I avoid the prewashed, preworn-looking ones too. I'll wear them casually 'til they fall apart, but I like my new ones looking new, crisp, and presentable.
+1 to this. Call on many country gents here on a Saturday morning, and you'll find them in frayed cotton drills and a jumper with a couple of holes in it. You'd certainly find me in that. But I'd still change into a neatly pressed pair of cavalry twills to go out for lunch!

First thing I do with new khakis is to run a bead of liquid stitch along the wear area at bottom of the cuffs which helps protect the cuffs from fraying.
