UglyBros 2Slub-K Jeans Test Review

I first saw the unique-looking UglyBros riding jeans being worn by another rider. These jeans, with the knee-armor mounted in exterior pockets, immediately attracted my attention—I had to have a pair. When I wear them many other riders approach me and ask what they are and where to get them, as the styling is quite bold and individual.

The oddly named 2Slub-K jeans I tested are one of six models in UglyBros’ range of men’s and women’s riding jeans made with a Kevlar-reinforced liner. UglyBros, a company based in Korea, also sells polyurethane-coated riding-look denim jeans for off-motorcycle time. I opted for the 2Slub-K jeans, as they include CE-approved knee and hip protectors, which are removable.

Constructed from 12-ounce stretch denim, the 2Slub-K jeans are cut in a straight, skinny fashion. The stretch function allows a bit more room when re-mounting my bike after a big lunch, or just hanging out around town. The comfort is also aided by the shirred (gathered) stretch panels above the knees and at the back, below the waist. UglyBros does offer other jeans for those not inclined to wear the skinny style.

There are two front pockets, a coin pocket, and two rear pockets—one with a zipper. Both front and back zippers are from YKK. They have a great, thick feel and are so comfortable on and off my bikes. I definitely like the way they look with my Dainese Street Biker D-WP sneakers.

UglyBros warns buyers to actually measure the waist of your favorite jeans, as their sizes are more accurate than Levis and other manufacturers that generally size two inches larger than the label indicates. You will probably buy the next size up, as I did—they fit perfectly. I have washed the UglyBros 2Slub-K jeans several times in warm water and I hang them to dry, so as not to risk shrinkage.
