The Perfect Bike Jean. Born in Brooklyn and now made in Manhattan. Osloh was created to provide the casual everyday cyclist with clothing that works just as well on the road as it does at your destination. Osloh is stylish and timeless apparel that performs.
Gravel No. 15 is a modern, versatile trouser in a straight fit that feels just right when other 5-pocket jeans are just a bit too casual. This jean represents a lighter, softer, stretchier alternative.
Weird cut and sizing, uncomfortable around the waist.
I had high expectations for these, but the cut is really weird around the waist, really flabby and flared on top and hard to get them to fit. Also, the waistband rubs against my skin and is.pretty rough and uncomfortable.
I don't know if it's just a bad batch or something...
Generally, the fabric is also pretty stiff and scratchy.
I have a pair of Traffic and was hoping they would have been similar. They don’t feel as durable, the stitching isn’t as rugged, and the fit is stretchy and odd. I will keep them as a back up, and hope I get used to the fit. They aren’t bad, just not the same.
thanks for the feedback Dan - we will be remaking the Traffic soon - I hope you like the lighter, stretchier, Gravel as you get used to them as they are different to the Lane & Traffic by design
Not at all like previous Osloh jeans
I've been wearing Osloh jeans exclusively since the first Kickstarter in 2014. This latest version are nothing like the jeans I know and love.
Since the very first pair, Osloh jeans have been 99% cotton and a heavy denim. They're a bit stiff and very sturdy jeans.
This new pair is pretty thin and very elastic. They're only 65% cotton. They stretch almost like workout pants when you pull them. They don't feel sturdy at all.
The fit at the waist is also very different. I've worn 34 inch waist Osloh jeans for the past 8-9 years and ordered the same here. But it's almost like the jeans flare out in the waist. I had to tighten both side tabs AND put on a belt!
I'm sad to have to go but if this is the direction of Osloh jeans I've bought my last pair.
Hi Andreas - sorry you are not happy with the jeans - please feel free to return them - the Gravel, made in the USA, is a different jean to the Lane or the Traffic - the material is meant to be lighter, with more stretch. We will be making a heavier jean again - don't give up on us - we're not perfect but we are trying!
