Levi's Commuter 511 Slim Fit Jeans

If you already wear Levi's, then you'll transition easily into the company's Commuter 511 line. The fit is somewhere between skinny and straight leg. After you put them on, you'll barely notice the differences between these pants and any pair of comfortable jeans. And that's the beauty of them. Made of 98 percent cotton with just a smidge of spandex, they have a hint of stretch that makes straddling a bike and pedaling a bit easier. There's also an invisible finish that makes them water- and odor-resistant and a slightly reinforced seat (also undetectable). Really, the only obvious commuter features are a reflective strip inside the pant leg, which is only visible when you roll them up, and a loop at the back waist that fits a full-size U-lock.
