We measured a sampling of these jeans of different waist sizes and found they measure out much larger than they should. Normally your everyday jeans will measure about 1” to 2” larger than the stated size. For example a size 36” jean measures 37” to 38”. These Go Up jeans measure a solid 4” larger than their states size, so I’d recommend you buy one size SMALLER than you normally buy.
The inseam measures out at about 33” is which just a touch longer than the stated inseam of 32”. Being part-cotton fabric, you may see some slight shrinkage, so the 33” measurement is about right.
You may want to measure a pair of your existing jeans to get a double check on choosing a size. Use the link below on how to measure. Whatever waist measurement you get, choose the size knowing that the waist on this pant is 4” LARGER than the stated size.
Our Two Cents
Trilobite Go Up jeans are a classic style denim jean made of VERY durable material and sewn together with triple stitching in key areas for abrasion and tear resistance with motorcycling in mind.
If you’ve been in the market for a pair of “raw authentic” jeans for your motorcycle outings, these Go Up jeans might be for you. They are simply styled with a standard cut (not skinny, but not baggy either). The material used in these jeans is Dyneema ® Denim. I’d encourage you to Google the fabric name and you’ll pull up mostly motorcycle riding jeans. And many of the brands, are quite expensive (these aren’t).
The fabric style used here is made to look like old fashioned jeans that were not pre-washed or pre-distressed. They are dark blue and rather stiff out of the box. Trilobite encourages minimal washing and offers a lot of instruction inside the box as to care for them for max life.
These jeans don’t come with armor nor are there provisions for adding armor. These jeans are aimed at folks who don’t want to wear pants with extra armor, but who see the value in wearing materials that are more abrasion resistant than cotton denim.
One hidden feature on the jeans is a hidden zipper pocket on the left thigh along the side seam. I think this would be perfect for a cell phone. Be sure and have a look at our sizing advice before ordering to get the right size. :: Paul, 04-09-19
