Active Lifestyle Jeans
In a previous post – Lifestyle, I looked broadly at cycle commuter apparel: Functional, moveable and breathable clothing that is as good off the bike as on, particularly for guys who lead busy lives and keep on the go.

Here I’ll focus in on active lifestyle jeans. I’m not suggesting you wear these to the gym, out on a run or a hardcore cycle but they are a great wardrobe staple for the active guy. The added stretch increases comfort and freedom of movement when out and about; cycling around town, shopping, a kick about, chasing after kids or even the office if dress code allows – they’ll see you through a busy day. As most of the jeans featured here are designed with the cyclist in mind, they benefit from a raised yoke at the back, so there is no risk of builders bum and the crotch is reenforced and elastic to avoid wear and tear.
