For those about to commute, Vulpine salutes you! Well, at least those who want to ride and work/play/shop/drink/etc. in the same outfit, that is. Whether your steez is casual Friday on a Friday or everyday, this may be what you’re looking for.
The Vulpine Jinzu Raw Selvedge Cycling Jean ($280USD) is both long in name as it is long in style. Wait, is long in style actually possible? Anyway, Vulpine’s thrown all the requisite cycling friendly features into this commuter jean while still managing to maintain an air of normalcy.
Vulpine: “You don’t want to be sat on any uncomfortable seams, so we’ve used our low-key Diamond Gusset, as with all our trousers. We’ve cut them long at the back to prevent any exposure of your ‘gluteal assets’. These are straight cut, in regular 32” and long 34” legs, to accommodate a cyclist’s quads, without being baggy.
The 12oz raw selvedge (unwashed) denim is sourced from the Jinzu River area in Toyama Prefecture, Japan. This is exceptionally high quality pre-shrunk denim that we suggest not washing for 6 months if you want the most personalised effect, though you can rinse out the excess dye straight away. If you leave them unwashed you’ll get the best possible fitting and self-designed jeans. It’s up to you.”
