These may be the ultimate jeans for cyclists: the union of comfort, function, and style. Swrve has been making commuter clothes since 2005 and the experience shows. Its Regular Trim Fit Jeans are made with Cordura (a cotton-nylon blend), which results in a soft and supple jean that feels broken in from day one but wears at least 10 times slower than average denim, according to the manufacturer. Reflective belt loops have the combined effect of looking cool and adding extra protection on night rides, and the requisite gusseted crotch and additional reflective material under the cuff means this is a jean built for riding – but you may never want to take them off.
