I have been searching for stylish riding gear that didn't sacrifice quality and protection. For most brands, it was one or the other. Also, being a taller rider, standing at 6'4", it was difficult to find a good fit. After trying these on, I finally found my perfect fit. These jeans are true to size. They are an athletic slim fit but are not overly tight like some other brands. I foresee myself copping the blue denim pair!
