Just a thought.
You could call it uality control, I call it manufacturing variances that are allowed.

Anyone over the age of 30 has bought enough jeans in their lifetime (and I learned this with Levis by the time I was 20) to know that you take a stack of whatever size you think you are into the dressing room, assess each pair, and buy the ones that fit you correctly (if any). Levis easily change pant-leg width, inseam, and wait by as much as an inch from pair to pair (rare to be that much, but I've seen it), so they just aren't something you buy off of the rack without trying them on. But then Levis are more mass-produced than something like motorcycling jeans that have Kevlar in them. The variances will most likely be wider on high-spped production runs with pants like Levis comapred to pants that have Kevlar that is most likely hand-cut.

Now I'm not saying that riding jeans don't have variances, as really everything does in manufacturing, but I would believe that riding pants are more true to the size the maker intended (which isn't to say one maker's 32" inseam is the same as someone else's, or even the same across same makers' different product lines).

I agree with everything you just said, except the first sentence I did say it was either QC or variance in manufacturing

Oops, wow - you really did write that, lol

Yeah, well, now y'all know my stance on it.

If I had the luxury of trying on quite a few pairs of boots/shoes in my unique size, just to see which felt better, I would as well - just because of manufacturing variances.

40 years, and you still haven't figured it out? Too bad, it's a great talent to have.



All gear is risk assessment. What I wear on the track versus what I wear on the street versus what I wear in the dirt, it all differs. I could go out every time in full leathers, airbag suit, hard armor, bubble wrap and anti-grav boots, but at that point, I'll just take the car.
