Jeans For Cyclists

Postby AgrAde on Sun 15th Apr 10:54pm

I have the standard problem where I can't fit off-the-shelf jeans from most manufacturers. Apparently the go-to is the Levi 541 "commuter" athletic cut stretch jeans, but they're still a bit tight in the thigh and loose in the waist for me.

I have found Marmot jeans to be excellent with a waist of a 32" but the arse and thigh of your normal tapered 36" or so, but they're designed to be especially thin and breathable so not too hardy and very cool in winter.
Today I discovered Outdoor Research do a good jean-styled pair of pants that are a bit thicker and burlier, but still stretch. They're proportioned almost like the Marmots so fit well, but are only in grey or brown.


What I actually want is something with thick tough fabric, black/charcoal/very dark blue in colour, but I haven't found anything that fits the bill yet. Any suggestions?

How much frontal room do you require?
Roxy jeans seems suitable for ya.

I tried those Levi commuter jeans once, they were a horrible cut.

I've found a couple of cuts of Stone Island and Armani jeans to have the best fit for my thighs and waist without having big wide legs at the bottom. But you need to get them from the US or UK for a reasonable price and you don't get to try them on. A 33 is best for me but the thighs are always tight, I've found wearing a lower hanging 34 better.

Cactus?
Not tried the denim, but I love the canvas supertrousers.

180EUR for Stone Island jeans :lol:
I'm not really okay with buying without trying. May have to...

I have some supertrousers, I really wish they fit me properly because otherwise they're great.

Cactus denim has been good to me so far - more than a year in them. it's a lot softer than the canvas supers, but is strong as.
I've got some of the Levis commuters too, and the cactus has way more thigh room, but arent quite as tapered in the calf. find both good on the bike, but the levis definitely tighter in the thigh.

Had a hoon on the cactus denim.

Same problem as the canvas supertrousers. Low cut, great for builders crack/falling down/discomfort around the hips. For my shape anyway.
