I'm interested in these jeans, but I'm a pudgy, stumpy guy - 29" inseam actual and the tape measure says just shy of 45" where my jeans normally ride. My most-worn pair of jeans is an old set of "Relaxed Fit" Canyon River Blues labeled 38x30, but the inside of the jeans' waist actually measures closer to 44 on the tape measure (???!!!).

So I'd be needing a 44x30 actual measurement, I think. Now is the inseam on these jeans a true length, or is there extra added to account for the riding position? Is 32" really 32" or is it more like 34"?

These jeans sound like exactly what I'm looking for but I think I might need to wait for an update with 30" inseam available, and the extra belt loops, if changes are coming.

Here's a good reference:

Grab your favorite pair of jeans and use the above to figure out your waist measurement.

I really enjoy how comfortable these jeans feel here at work (wearing them now). I work behind a desk and leave the knee pads in. They don't bother me at all and as a matter of fact save me the other day when I banged my kneed on the edge of the desk :)

I do plan on getting another pair, just waiting on seeing what changes are coming.
Glad to hear you like them!

Inseam is true length, so a 32 is a 32 and so on, if you wear boots, the extra 2 inches should be fine.

If you use the waist measurement above, you will be able to calculate the proper waist size, once you do we can help you out with a proper fit.

Awesome jeans!

I joined this site recently after the Lean Angle Jeans came up on the search for new gear. I have been looking for riding jeans for a very long time and I never bought a pair because they just looked weird. I typically ride in leathers and sometimes overpants.

I have jeans that are low rise so low rise is not a problem. I do agree with others, a regular fit should be an option in the future. I have used the jeans for a week and a half now and I must say that I love them. At first, they felt weird but after an hour on the bike, I felt fine. I even picked up my bike from the shop the other day. My mechanic didn't even notice that I was wearing protective gear. I also got compliments from my girlfriend. Removing the armor can can a bit difficult at times but I don't think it's anything a visit to the restroom can't fix..

Other than that, I worn them on a few 85-90 degree weather and they felt comfortable while moving. Once I stopped and walked around, it was definitely cooler than my leathers and probably as hot as wearing regular jeans at those temperatures. Maybe it was better since you have the other fabric touching your skin as opposed to denim.

They are true to size. I wear 30x30 and I ordered 30x32. If you wear your jeans loose, then order a size higher. I really like the fact that they do stretch in key areas. They are heavier than regular jeans but that is expected and not a big deal.

Would I wear these jeans to work daily? Probably but I don't ride daily. For me, it will serve as my hang out gear. Many times, I am riding and people want to meet up at a restaurant or bar(I don't drink and ride but I still meet) and I hate to show up looking like I have 2 pairs of pants or looking like a power ranger.

Great customer service and great product. I highly recommend them.

PS: if there are changes in the future, I will probably get another pair. I really like them.

Yes I wear Alpinestars SMX-5s, usually boot over jeans, then 1-piece over jeans and boots. Of course with suit off (like at work), the jeans come out of the boots.

I measured my comfy jeans using the above method and came up with a waist value of 42 (2x 21). Also, the length of the inner leg seam of the jeans, from center of the crotch to the end of the cuff, is 28" (I don't know if that's helpful.)

So would 42x32 be the recommended size to order? I have a Klim jacket coming in Friday and I'd like to test these in combination, it sounds like exactly what I need.

Yes, I would recommend the 42x32.

Fit Question

I am really interested in these jeans. How does the fit compare to Levi 501 jeans?

Got 'em. They are a fabulous product - surprisingly soft and comfy! - except, unsurprisingly, the 32" are about 2-3" too long. I really do have stumpy legs (and I wasn't kidding about the 28" inseam on my regular jeans!). So, I'll be returning them shortly and keeping an eye out for availability of 42x30.

We, the inseam-challenged really are out there. I know of at least one other person looking at these who would buy a pair if there was 30" leg available. So, there's two guaranteed sales!

The"inseam challenged" at least have the option of hemming pants. Us longer legged folk have a tougher time with finding the pant leg stretcher :)

Try hemming???
