Designed with serious riders in mind, upstart clothier Osloh's Traffic Jeans have more cycling-friendly features than any other pair we've tested: stretch denim, reinforced seams, double-lined pockets, antibacterial and water-repellent coatings, and chain-side leg reinforcement (to name a few). There's even an actual quilted polyester chamois in the seat and crotch – in other words, extra padding that is similar to that of hard-core bike pants. The only shortcoming of all these great touches is that you can tell that they're there. They don't scream bike pants, per se, but visible stitching in the crotch and other key areas adds up to a jean with a look that is definitely not typical. Don't let this bother you, because these jeans will probably outlive your bike. [$178; osloh.com]
