Suggestions for riding jeans?
I'm looking for recommendations and suggestions for riding jeans. In the spirit of ATGATT, I figure I should be looking for something with more protection than I get from the usual just casual regular jeans I wear. I'm looking for something comfortable, doesn't scream "motorcycle", and has Kevlar where it's needed.
I'm open to purchasing either online or locally. When looking at online vendors, I see prices anywhere from $70 to $500 - and I don't really know the difference. I do have a Cycle Gear that is only about 15 miles away, but it's not a large shop and I'm not sure they even keep jeans in stock.
I'd like to stay around $100, can stretch that out to $150 or so if necessary. Price is definitely a factor especially since if I do end up finding that I wear them, I'll likely end up with a few pair.
So does anyone have suggestions for what I should look for in jeans? Either features I should look for, or recommendation of a specific product are very welcome. Are any online vendors better than others when it comes to clothing?
For those that do wear protective jeans, I have another question that I feel kind of dumb asking, but here it goes. Are they comfortable enough to wear all day, every day, or should I expect to need to change my pants when I ride?
