Erik in Swedenwrote a review of Levi's Commuter 511 Men's Denim Pants on January 2, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm not sure how they did it, but Levi's nailed these pants.
I ride my bike pretty much every day, and I've been searching for a pair of jeans that I can wear to work that will survive the rides and I believe that I've found them here. (I've been considering going with a $200 pair from Rapha for over a year, and I no longer feel I need to now that Levi's has developed these). A rundown of my impressions so far:
Material: The material seems strong but has some stretch to it. So far, so good.
Fit: I've never been one for skinny jeans, but somehow these guys fit perfectly. Not so much room that the pant leg rubs against the chain, but not so tight that I feel restricted.
Features: Really like the reflectors on the inside of the legs. Every pant should have these!
