The fabric will wear in quickly to look and feel like your favorite worn-in jeans, but their longevity will not be affected; the CORDURA® fibers woven into the fabric makes the denim super durable. add to that a ton of stretch for ease of movement, and the soft feel and look of cotton next to skin, and you have the perfect confluence of durability, performance, and style in one pair of jeans.
Please note that the color on these will fade a little with use and washing, particularly in high-wear areas because they are a dyed cotton-based fabric
how durable is the fabric? *in a rub test conducted by CORDURA® (Martindale Abrasion BS EN ISO 12947-2:1999 Standard Woolen Abrasion with 12KPa weight), regular 100% cotton denim held up to between 75'000 to 25'000 rubs (depending on number of times the denim was washed) compared to the same weight CORDURA® denim where they stopped the tests at 250'000 rubs on all samples because the denim was just not wearing through.
our jeans have been pre-washed to soften the fabric, prevent shrinkage, and reduce the dye from staining. however! some transfer of color can still occur, especially when wet. to reduce the risk we suggest washing the jeans before wear (following directions!) especially if white items will come in contact with the garment.
triple chain stitch on high-stress areas make the stitching super durable to keep up with the CORDURA® denim.
reflective belt loops.
seamless diamond gusset to keep pressure off sensitive areas.
slight rise in the rear waistband to stay respectable while on the saddle or crouching.
THE FINAL PRODUCT
loaded with features to make these the most comfortable jeans plus fabric that will not quit means these jeans will keep up with you anywhere you go. go get 'em tiger!
GENERAL NOTES ON FIT
for swrve bottoms, we strive to be as true to size as possible. most other companies offer vanity sizing, but with us, a 32 means the waist circumference of the garment is 32". we update our size guides to provide the current sizing per garment frequently.
if you have trousers of which you like the fit, measure the waist and that is the swrve size! to measure the waist, lay them flat and make sure the front and back of the waistband lay evenly across each other, then measure from side to side (fold to fold on the inside), multiply by 2 (there are 2 layers of fabric) and voilà, you’ve got your measurement.
for swrve tops, please note our fit is a slimmer European fit similar to American Apparel's fit

- bike commute
- skinny jeans
I have been using a pair of your cordura jeans for over a year of bicycle commuting, and I use a brooks cambium saddle which is known to destroy pants. I have tried so many pants intended for cycling, but I would have to replace them within a few months. Well, until I started using these pants. I can’t believe how long they have lasted! Even when they developed a tear it remained local instead of spreading. Thanks for taking the time to make something that really works.
These are my fifth pair of cordura skinny jeans from Swrve. I wear them everyday year round to bike commute, work, travel…. I love them. They fit great, move with me everywhere I go, and last forever. You should buy some.
Favorite pair of jeans
Searched long and hard to find the perfect pair of jeans and finally stumbled upon these from swrve. Excited to try the 4 way stretch version but for now loving this skinny (not super tight like most skinny jeans - more like a slim-skinny) style. Since swrve doesn't do vanity sizing I wear a 33x32 in these when I'm normally a 32x32.
Nice thick fabric that is both soft and flexible. The black has the slightest hints of lightness between threads of the fabric that give it a subtle premium look. The well-placed placed belt loops are a big plus too.
Color fading due to friction
Especially the color fading of the buttocks is severe. But the comfort is the best.
