Realizing that people want something more than just plain – and uncomfortable – denim jean, and to remain popular among a wide range of youth subcultures, including greasers, mods, rockers etc, Levis Strauss just released the Levi’s Commuter Jeans. Commuter, because the company made this new model incorporating “cyclist-friendy” features. But when I read about what was so special about them, all these features are sought after not only by eco-friendly cyclists pedaling to the office, but also by motorcyclists. Looks to me like Levi Strauss should call them Levi’s 511 Biker Jeans to address both categories of 2/3-wheelers.
Anyway, the list of special features include. Based on the company’s most popular 511 skinny jean, 4 versions ( full length or cropped, in denim or non-denim) NanoSphere treatment for water- and dirt-resistance, Sanitized tech for protection against odor, 3M Scotchlite reflective fabric for safety after dark, just the right amount of stretch for unencumbered movement, a raised back yoke to keep your lower back from showing, a reinforced crotch, double back layer pockets, and a U-lock storage system. Works for all bikers for much more than commuting. Are Levi’s jeans still cut and stitched in America? Levi’s Jeans.
