Whether it’s been years since you’ve owned your last pair of Levi’s, or you’re an avid purchaser, there’s no denying that the long-standing denim brand still knows how to pull out the punches every now and then. Case in point: Commuter by Levi’s, a line of denim designed and optimized for the urban commuter cyclist.
Arriving in select Levi’s stores and retailers in August, the Commuter line is built around the 511 Skinny Jean, Levi’s most popular skinny fit for men. These jeans feature a slew of notable enhancements to regular denim, all to assist the mobility needs of the urban cyclist.
The Commuter jeans’ fabric has a NanoSphere treatment – a feature from Levi’s partnership with Swiss-based Schoeller Technologies AG – which makes the denim water resistant, dirt repellent, and more durable. This line also has Sanitized hygiene function integrated in the fabric, protecting against odours, and 3M Scotchlite, which subtly integrates reflectivity into key areas of the jeans for nighttime safety, as well as some added stretch so you won’t have to worry about bunching or cycling hindrance.
The Levi’s Commuter jeans comes in two styles: a full length denim as well as a cropped version.
Expect the retail price to be about $100 come the release of the line, slated for an early August arrival in Canada, though it’s already available Stateside. So far, the Commuter line is men’s only, but we can’t see that being the case for long.
