Wore the Agv corsica jeans today on the bike for the first time.
They aren't perfect...but they will do. Especially for the price.
-don't really care for the wash in overcast daylight. its still dad-jean color even if the cut is better. I might try overdyeing them. I'd lose the contrast between warp and weft, but it would darken them up.
-the hem on the bottom is kinda fugly. It is a little bit too tall (the stitches are maybe 3/4" from the bottom) and it just looks sloppy. I would almost consider pulling the stitches and making it more like 1/2".
-the back rise isn't tall enough...especially without a belt.
-I have pretty big legs but I almost wonder if the cut is too tight for me. Probably good for a lot of dudes. The cut itself is pretty good for me, but when you try to hide knee pads inside, they've got nowhere to go when you stand up off the bike. If there was a little more room or my legs were a bit smaller, the knee pads would be barely visible (and these are pretty minimal D30 pads). Will be interesting to see how they stretch.
