Introduction Motolegion are a brand of jeans designed by Australian brand RHOK. I recently purchased a pair, and this is my review of them. For the purposes of this review, I'll be comparing the jeans against some work-issued jeans that I have - some King Gee jeans. King Gee's (left), RHOK (right) Ordering and Delivery Ordering was very simple from the RHOK website, though the website seemed confused as to how much the jeans were - the page said $145, but the Paypal checkout said $146. Once I placed my order, I waited for 11 days, with no jeans in sight. I sent off an email, and was quickly replied to by Marinko. They were out of stock, but had forgotten to let me know. They said that they would ship the jeans in a couple of weeks. A couple of days later, however, I received another email, saying the jeans had been mailed, but they had probably sent the wrong size. When the jeans arrived, they were indeed the wrong size. Marinko was very apologetic, and immediately sent up the correct size jeans, and a pre-paid express post satchel to send the wrong jeans back. First Impressions My first impression of the jeans was how thin the material was! I was expecting a very heavy, thick denim, but the denim felt a lot thinner and flexible to my fingers than the King Gee's. A measurement with my micrometer confirmed by suspicions - the RHOK's measured at 0.77mm vs the King Gee's at 0.93mm. This obviously doesn't matter from a protection standpoint, as the Kevlar does the protecting, not the denim, but the jeans may not last as long as I'd hoped. What the jeans lack in thickness, they definitely make up for in weight. The King Gee's weigh in at 804 grams on the scale, the RHOK's are 1.10kg! I don't know where the weight comes from - probably the kevlar panels, and the huge amount of thread which has gone into stitching these jeans together. The stitching is very heavy duty. I'll comment more on it later. Stylin' The jeans are not subtle at all. Red stitching all around, and a giant logo on your ass. If there was one aspect of the style of the jeans that I could live without, it's the logo. Given that I usually wear work-issued jeans most of the time, and these come with the corporate logo on the back, I'm not totally adverse to this idea. However, the sheer size of the logo is off-putting. Giant Ass Logo Some of the panels, such as above the knee, and the seat also come pre-distressed. The 'blue' colour is also very dark. While not black it's definitely on the 'navy' side of blue. Distressed panels Cut The jeans are quite long, about 1cm longer than the 87R King Gee's, which are a very traditional 501's - style cut. They're also quite wide at the boot. You'll have no trouble at all fitting these over your Sidi race boots. Each leg averages about 1cm wider when laid flat. Width and colour difference between the two jeans. The belt loops are a little bit narrow in length. My belt just squeezes through. Stitching The stitching is extremely heavy-duty. All of the important seams are triple-stitched. One area of concern is that all the stitching is external, and doesn't have the 'two under, one over' style that is found on other jeans - like the King Gee's. This raises a slight concern that in a bad slide the stitching may possibly wear through, though this seems highly unlikely, given the strength of the stitching. Ultra-heavy-duty stitching Internal Stitching, RHOK's Internal Stitching, King Gee's Each stitch has a massive amount of thread going through it. I'd like to know just what percentage of the weight of the jeans is made up of thread! Comfort On the bike - When on the bike, the jeans are perfectly comfortable, and don't get in the way at all. However, I found that one of the seams appears to settle right on the inside of my knee, which is uncomfortable when hugging the tank. When I sit on the bike, I need to spend a second to make sure that the leg is rotated so that the seam is out of the way. Off the bike, the jeans are surprising uncomfortable. The main culprit is the velcro panels inside the knee pockets. Because they face towards the outside of the jeans, the velcro strip basically sits against your leg, tempered only by the thin mesh material. The sharp edges (especially the corners) of the strip poke through the mesh, and onto your leg. This isn't unbearably uncomfortable, but it's pretty much continuously noticeable. I'm hoping that they soften up with wear and washing. The Kevlar panels themselves are completely comfortable. You won't even notice that they're there.
