Looking for leather riding pants

I've got a set of Vanson racing leathers, but I'm looking for a pair of basic leather pants that aren't racing-weight, fit more like jeans, and have some soft armor in the knees and hips. Looking for something in the classic european style. BMW used to make a set they called Touring Pants quite a few years ago, and they were pretty much what I'm trying to find today, but can't. It doesn't seem like there's nearly the number of choices as there used to be for basic leather gear. Most of the stuff I see from Joe Rocket, Rev It, Bilt, and Olympia is made in China crap. The Dainese stuff is nicely made but cut like hip-hugger skinny jeans and have too many graphics. Any suggestions?

Got my wife a set from Helimot in Freemont, CA. Very nicely made.

These are a true pant, not an over-pant.

what size are you looking for? sometimes finding used in excellent condition is the only way to get BMW leather pants like you've described.

Kushitani has the best looking leather "jeans" in my opinion but damn those are pricy.

As being Swedish in Sweden I of course wear and promote Swedish products...

I wear these:

Excellent quality, waterproof, reasonably cool in the summer, very comfy with stretch zones where needed.
As for safety, I want trousers with built in suspenders to ensure that they will not be pulled off in case I find myself doing some reversed ass-surfing on the asphalt...
