Levi's 511 Commuter Jeans

Levi's 511 Commuter Jeans

We suppose it was only a matter of time before the biggest name in jeans realized that bike riders needed something more than just plain denim. Levi's 511 Commuter Jeans ($80) are designed especially for the urban commuter. Based on the company's 511 Skinny jean, the Commuter comes in four versions — full length or cropped, in denim or non-denim — and offers cyclist-friendly features like 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. Ride on, eco-friends.

  • Denim Therapy

    There's few things we hate more than having to give up a beloved pair of jeans because of wear, tears, or holes that outgrew their stylishness. Luckily, we no longer have to. Denim Therapy ($7/inch) is a jean repair service that works miracles on broken denim, restoring pair after pair to respectable-or-better condition while retaining all the marks, softness, and fit that some from a well-worn pair of leg covers. For those of us who've made a semi-serious investment in our jeans, it's a life saver, and you don't even have to leave the house — which is great, because you'll be pants-less for about two weeks.

  • Levi's 1967 505 Jeans

    Add some classic denim to your wardrobe with Levi's 1967 505 Jeans ($225). Part of the company's Vintage Clothing line, these recreated bottoms are made from Red Line Selvage Sanforized denim to reduce shrinkage -- a process that also makes them run a little small, so be prepared to suck it up and buy a size larger than normal -- and feature a slimmer cut than the standard 501, bar tacks for added toughness, copper rivets, and a big "E" red tab on the seat. Peg them if you must, but remember that shorter-legged fellas will need to get them tailored if you want a perfect fit.
