Pants Wear?

sooo.... how do you guys avoid seat wear on your favorite pair of pants?

I commute every day and just about every pair of jeans I worn gets ruined by my saddle... the threads wear thin in patches near my sit bones on the ass of my pants until it looks ridiculous.

Suggestions? (Besides "get a better saddle" or "wear bike shorts")

Seriously? This is like saying "How can I keep my food from going away when I eat it?"

Wear out your jeans until people can see your asscrack as you walk into the office.

What kind of saddle do you have? Something horribly abrasive?

OP has a hilarious sig.

Also, jeans wear, i thought that was just a fact of life.

Oh, you could buy Rapha jeans, apparently they are engineered to wear down less.

I have a pair of Ralph Lauren shorts that have held up to years of biking. Sure, they are faded in the ass, as well as the front from the sun, but I have yet to have a hole or a tear.
