cycling clothing for men

HOW POPULAR ARE COMMUTER CLOTHING.

Most people who commute to work by bike wear commuter clothing.    The jeans are special because they are appropriate to wear for those who commute to work.

Levi jeans

You will find other Levi clothes suited for commuters such as shorts, shirts, jackets, and even socks!

I chose ‘cycling clothing for men’ for my Post since most of the commuter clothes are for men.

But there is now a line, (it’s about time) that women have a line of the own commuter clothes.

Women can click the link and tell Amazon that they are looking for cycling clothes for women.  They can add other information to Amazon for them to help you.

The Page that has a list of Levi clothing is called, ‘Bicycle commuter clothing’.

To answer the question specifically, commuter clothing has the commuter in mind when new ones are developed.

They are still in the experimental stage.  There are comments from people who are not happy with their commuter jeans or other wearing apparel for some reason.

It would seem to me, that the CEO’s who read the comments will finally make a better product.  That is, if they are smart.

But for the most part, the commuter clothing has the balance of performance and fashion.  Commuter clothing is important to a cyclist because it solves the problem that comes from riding a bike on the saddle for a long period of time.

Hopefully, the commuter clothing will be so well made that concern about holes in the crotch is a thing in the past.

With all these issues and others too, commuters still prefer commuter clothing.

CYCLING CLOTHING FOR MEN WHO LOVE TO RIDE.

As Levi’s® Commuter ™ Pro quotes, “Engineered for Movement. Optimized for the City” relates that the this would be a good motto for Commuters and their special clothes for commuting.

Levi Strauss and Company has been around for a long time.

In fact, in my research in general, I found that LS&Co was one of the first companies to have a line of clothes specially made for commuters.

Commuters are happy about that.

Now I love 501® Levi® original and tall & big original fit jeans for men; in fact, that is the title of my Website.  

I love the company.  Many of the older people do feel the same way.

BUT WHY ARE COMMUTERS HAPPY ABOUT THE NEW LINE OF COMMUTER™ CLOTHES.

Because, my dear readers, obviously these line of clothes are comfortable for riding a bike.

If they had to wear 501® Levi® jeans, they would strip them off and just wear their shorts. Police would get involved–well the ending would be that some company would figure out just what cyclist needed.

Holes would be a problem.  The simple way to get on the bike would be another problem. They need a little stretch.

Another serious problem would be a rash that would develop between the cyclist’s thighs.  Chafing can occur is different places, but no matter, it still hurts.

Back to the question about why commuters are happy about LEVI’S new line of commuter clothes is because the Company has been working on commuter cyclist clothing since the beginning in 2011.

WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL TO WEAR IN HOT HUMID WEATHER?

Linen is the top choice of fabric to wear in the hot summer.  The material is breathable, very light, loosely woven to allow heat to escape from the body.

It absorbs moisture and dries quickly so that you remain cool in the hot season weather.

Cotton is another material that is one of the best to wear in hot humid weather.  Cotton is soft and lightweight.

It soaks up the sweat which allows heat to escape from the body.  That makes it easy to stay cool.  I remember having to iron the cotton shirts for my husband.

It really wasn’t that bad, unless it had a lot of wrinkles.

Now, there is a polyester cotton that you do not have to iron.  If you are sweating a lot, cotton then could become heavy and wet.

It can leave stains when you get too hot and sweaty.

Denim that the Levi® jeans® are made from are tightly woven cotton, so it too, like cotton is breathable and absorbs sweat just like cotton.

The synthetics that make denim stretchier don’t breathe the way cotton fibers do.  Make sure your jeans are 100% cotton.

In the Business Insider with an article, “How To Wear Jeans In Hot Weather” by , wrote that a “nice well-washed, broken-in, less-than-12-oz-denim jeans” is okay to be worn in the heat of the day.

He said that denim is a breathable weave.  It depended on denim weight.  Below 12 oz. the jeans should be worn since these feel even more comfortable than chinos or some khakis in the summer heat.

It is a good article to read if you want more details.

For the most part, do not give up wearing denim jeans if it has the right weight.  I do not know how that is calculated.

It is your choice to know what is the best material.  Now, don’t sweat it.

WHAT ABOUT COMMUTER JEANS IN THE HOT HUMID CLIMATE?

The best way is to wear commuter™ jeans which have solved the problem of sweat.  Now a writer from The Guardian named Matt Seaton in the article, “How to avoid cycle sweat” doesn’t want to wear commuter clothing.

He does agree that commuter clothing is a way to keep sweat from developing.

It is true that commuter clothing has the ability to transfer moisture away from the body, declares Matt Seaton.

It is worth reading his article which can also be found on Google + on a post of mine.
