Don't get me wrong, I get all lycra'ed up when going on long rides, but a lot of my riding is also running errands around town, going places by bike, etc. I've found I will absolutely destroy the crotch of a normal pair of jeans within three weeks of riding my bike with them. I ride with a Brooks B17 saddle. I'm looking for something sized about 40x30, preferably jean-like or very casual pants (no pleats!).
Does anyone have suggestions? I notice a lot of the high-end bike-specific jean companies make nothing but "skinny fit" jeans that max out around a size 38" waist. Well I guess they're not going to get my money!
