As a convert to the “commuter jeans” camp after riding swrve’s Cordura Skinny Fit Jeans I’ve had my eyes on Rapha’s Jeans ($220USD) since their arrival. I love the details they put into their products and I’m a known sucker voor de pink. Question is, will they be able to match my first time experience?

Rapha’s description: “Unlike regular denim, the jeans are extremely resistant to abrasion and won’t deteriorate at key wear points, particularly around the seat. The stretch in the yarn also allows for ease of movement. With a standard straight-leg fit, the jeans are cut for on-the-bike fit, with a high-backed waist, which is cut lower at the front. The jeans have been tailored to accommodate the pedalling action with offset inseams to prevent chafing. Belt loops are positioned for maximum comfort.”

As usual, I’ll be posting images and thoughts on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/Flickr during my ride and review of the jeans.
