Hello Quarterwit, thank you for joining us today. No, thank you. I understand you bought some cheap jeans off eBay recently? That's right - they were around $140. But that's not the reason I bought them. Oh yes? What was? Well, they're black... And they're skinny cut. Skinny? Does that mean you're gay? No, it means I'm not an obese blackbird rider who thinks red camouflage hip hop pants is a good look. -silence- But more seriously, draggins only have the slix - which are shiny - or the twista's, which are blue - and the baggy stuff just isn't for me. So, how do they look? Pretty good. They're quite understated. No bright stitching, no graphics and only a very, very small tag at the seam of the back pocket. My main criticism is that they aren't quite black. More 'charcoal'. As such I haven't been able to get away with wearing them into work - where I can manage to get away with some black Levi's. I've actually been complimented on them. Were they taking the piss? These are Kevlar jeans after all. I don't think so. We later had sex. Consensually? Yes. How was fitting? It fitted in the standard hole with minimum fuss. The jeans? They ran spot on at a 32 inch waist. There are two things I don't like about the fit... The first is they are cut quite low at the rear - so people could get a look at your date. If you ride a sports bike, isn't that what you're after anyway? (They both chuckle) But seriously. Last gay joke for today. The second issue is the lower half of the leg towards the ankle is a bit funny. A little too baggy to fit seamlessly into a riding boot but a little loose for normal jeans. But it really isn't that bad. How's the protection? The jeans are fully Kevlar-lined. Which I don't think is a good thing. They may be slightly hotter than they'd need to be and really, who needs Kevlar at the back of the knees? And the quality? Looks pretty good. Stitching is okay and overall they seem to be on a par with comparable brands. They don't seem quite as solid as draggins, but they are quite close. How'd they crash test? I haven't fallen off in them. Doesn't that make this review slightly redundant? Probably.
