Measurements of this pair of Crosstown 2.0 Slim Riding Jeans
Cut for a slimmer fit. The Crosstown Slim Riding Jean is designed to fit a woman with a 6-9” difference between her waist and hip measurements and a slimmer upper thigh. For example, our model, Diana, has a 27” natural waist and 35” hips. Check the size chart to find your size.
Real measurements. All measurements provided in the size chart are based on actual garment sizes. Every garment in the world (except for perhaps yoga pants and bikinis) come with "ease" built in, otherwise you'd never be able to bend over to tie your shoes or raise your arms above your head. Our jeans are no different. You get a little ease at the hips to make room for your hip armor. This jean also sits 2" below your natural waist, so if your natural waist measures 25", order a size 25. The measurement at the waistband is going to be a tiny bit larger than your natural waist measurement to account for that.
Thanks to ARMALITH 2.0 Denim, Worse for Wear jeans are protective from the outside in – providing 2.8 second abrasion resistance in an all-day comfortable fabric. There’s no sacrificial outer layer or bulky, itchy Kevlar liner to worry about. ARMALITH 2.0 Denim is a strong outer layer that provides high-performance protection in case of abrasive impact. It’s made by combining cotton with UHMWPE (Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) fiber which - prior to its use in apparel - was selected for use in aerospace, military and off-shore industries. It’s an advanced composite fabric that is flexible, soft and lightweight, yet is abrasion resistant and cut resistant with a small amount of stretch to make sure these jeans hug your body just right. It provides superior protection and comfort for motorcycle riding without being hot or bulky.
Armor Pockets – an extra layer of protection. The outer fabric of our armor pockets is military-grade abrasion resistant nylon. This super tough fabric will ensure your armor stays in place when you need it most. The inner fabric of our armor pockets (the part that touches your skin) is a high performance, anti-microbial wicking fabric. It’s soft to the touch and keeps smelling fresh even after multiple summertime rides.
SAS-TEC CE Approved knee (CE Level 2) and hip (CE Level 1) protectors provide a strong yet flexible body protection system. Made of lightweight viscoelastic foam, this armor molds to the shape of your body and is practically invisible under clothing. In the event of an impact, they stiffen to absorb shock and help protect you from the forces of a crash. ***NOTE 5/21/18: WE ARE OUT OF SAS-TEC HIP ARMOR. ADDITIONAL $$$ HAS BEEN TAKEN OFF THE PRICE OF THESE JEANS TO ACCOUNT FOR THAT.
Seam Selection A pair of jeans is only as strong as its weakest seam. This is why we use bonded nylon thread to double and triple-stitch every seam on these jeans. This is military-strength abrasion resistant thread, not the breakable cotton stuff used in fashion jeans.
Care. Treat your Worse for Wear jeans as you would a pair of premium denim jeans - wear often, wash seldom. Washing in cold water is best, then hang to dry. Thanks to the combination of cotton and UHMWPE, they dry quickly and won't shrink. Do not iron your jeans. They won't need it, and who irons their jeans anymore?
Content. 57% cotton, 33% UHMWPE, 8% elastomultiester, 2% elastane. Proudly made in Richmond, Virginia using fabric from Spain and the U.S.
We’re confident they'll become your new favorite pair of jeans. And yes, they have the power to make your butt look fantastic. Don't just take our word for it, though. See what other riders have to say about our jeans.
Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes and thank goodness for that! While we’d love to say this cut fits every woman ever, it’s a fact these Crosstown Slim Riding Jeans are not the perfect fit for every body. Measure yourself, then check our Size Guide to determine whether the Crosstown Slim Jean or the Crosstown Curvy Jean is right for you.
