Bike commuter pants
My bike commute is relatively short, only two miles, and I don't have a shower at work. That means I usually wear my work clothes when I head to the office (usually Dockers, an Oxford shirt, trail shoes). My problem is the seats on my khakis don't last very long and they sometimes rip out on me.
Does anybody know of a good work-casual pants style that has a reinforced seat for cyclists (or motorcycle or horse riders). I don't like to wear jeans, but the khakis get stressed out too much and rip on me. It doesn't help that I'm built like a football lineman gone to seed (6-foot-1, 330 pounds), but the pants seem to handle the everyday walking and other activities. My size is 46 waist, 32 inseam, so I'm just a little bit outside of the mainstream Dockers sizes (46 starts the big-and-tall sizes). Does anybody know of any good bike commuter pants with reinforced seats, or am I going to have to design my own version and make them myself?
