MUXU Ride Jeans, £90,

A couple of brands have tried ‘riding jeans’ before but fairly unsuccessfully. This pair, made from fine Japanese stretch denim is perhaps the best yet. Other than unbelievably comfy material, there’s triple stitching on the legs, a seamless crotch to prevent chafing, and a cut which is a little higher at the rear and lower at the front. In addition to the usual pockets there’s a phone/MP3/pump pocket at the back plus, on the inner rear of the right leg, a large reflective logo  — roll up that leg to keep it out of the chain and you’ll also be visible in low light. Four sizes from 30in to 36in.  JK

PROS extremely comfortable
