The Search for Two-Year-Plus Pants
September 17, 2012 7:05 AM Subscribe
I finally found a pair of black, cordura cycling jeans that seem like they'll last for years. On the other hand, I've started to discover that my Levis don't last. Where else can I find indestructable pants?

Most cycling jeans (the cordura kind) seem to be black, and, lesser, indigo. Where are, say, light khaki or blue durable pants? Maybe cotton actually will fit the bill, but the stiching/fabric or something of that sort must be much more durable than Levi's - I'd love to have a two-to-three-year jeans/pants cycle rather than one-year.
Jeans vs pants - good with either. I bike to work every day, but don't have any dress code other than 'looking fly'. My mental price limit is $100, but I can go higher if it's worth it and especially if I can try them out in a store. I'm a bit on the outskirts of size (30x32ish)
