Road rash protection? Cold weather?

Sorry, when I try to use the quote button I wind up with no place to write in a message.

I ride motorcycles, and jeans are unwise if you think you'll get anything other than tissue-paper protection. If the weather is that cold, re-think your choice of pants. There's better gear for both situations.

I'd rather have jeans I can wear as all-rounders except when summer demands shorts. The men of the last century did just fine with 12oz denim.

Not to be a smart-ass, but get back to me when you've owned a bunch of various denim weights for a year or two and let me know how often that 19/21/24oz denim still makes it into your rotation.

I spill soda and beer on my jeans all the time and I don't soak em. It's better than spilling 40-45 gallons of water on them. hehe.

Indeed as well. I'm a bartender so my jeans are a towel as well. I was just freaking out for the day after I spilled the slurpee. After a day I said fuck it. No pain, no gain :)

Dang that last picture makes the belt look HELLA wide, but it's same width as my tanner belt.

If i'm not mistaken yo_mj is fairly slim making the belt look bigger when worn. Looks great though, i love the leather treatment and buckle on that thing.

how tall are u guys, im 5.11 and i have like a triple cuff

Same here. I rock a a triple cuff too. I thinking when they finally get a wash the inseam will probably shrink a bit more and switch it to a double cuff.

Quick sizing question. If I wear a size 29 in Skull 5010 comfortably, should a get a pair of 28 or 29 in slims? I'm only asking this because the 5010 are saforized while the Slims aren't. Many thanks!
