Popular denim company Levi’s have launched a line of their signature looks specifically designed with the urban cyclist in mind.
The utility waistband features both a u-lock storage, as well as a higher rise in the back so folks behind you don’t get a glimpse of your backside. It has a comfortable, stretch fabric for easy mobility and reinforced seams for extra durability.
Understanding that the days progressively warmer, they even enhanced the fabric with additional anti-microbial protection.
The black version of the jeans are cropped–so they don’t get stuck on your gears–and have a nonintrusive strip of reflective material to keep you safe when you ride. They’re also water resistant and dirt repellant.
These features are now found on the 511 Skinny Jeans in three washes: Indigo Best Rigid, Chinchilla Twill, and Black. And for the top half? They’ve done up the Levi’s Trucker Jacket, with similar features, in an Indigo wash. The jeans retail at $78; the jacket at $128.
According to Senior Designer JeWon Yu, “The Commuter Series started as a simple conversation of “I wish…” and “what if…” and turned into the realization that we could give more to those already donning our jeans and trucker jackets while trekking their bikes around town.”
