Last week I gave away a Cadence hoody that has seen some wear, though had lots of life left in it. Yesterday I was sent an email with a video attached, showing a little of what Dustin has been up to. I’m glad that he’s making stuff in the US, and though the fit won’t likely be right for us Clydesdales, you skinny fuckers should love these.
They are raw denim, so expect some break in (they do have 2% lycra which is great for cycling pants)- but after that, the double seat should maintain their “strong as shit” characteristic, because of some stitching that I didn’t understand after watching the video twice.
Personally, I’ve never worn raw denim. Dustin says they are pants for people that live in them and they will take the shape of the person. Maybe I can get a pair of these and a raw denim shirt and build a denim person that will go to work for me.
These here pants retail for $110. Not outrageous when you consider made in the US raw denim. Like lots of pants sewn by cycling companies, I’d suggest trying them on if you can find a shop that carries them. Or just roll the dice and buy them here.
