Ready for uptown, too.
Zoic is a company run by real humans who live in the real world, too, which is why when they set out to make a casual pair of cycling pants, it's not just looser-fitting Lycra that's supposed to pass for bar-ready. No, the Zoic Downtown Pants are real-deal bottoms that have details that make them comfortable for throwing a leg over a bike without looking like it.
The Downtown pants are made from a DWR-treated double-woven stretchable fabric. On the outside, it's tough, not unlike denim, but on the inside, it's soft and comfortable. Bike-smart features include a reinforced crotch that can stand up to the intense friction of cycling without making for an awkward fit or gait off the bike. There are five total pockets, including a tech pocket with an audio port for your phone or music player. A microfiber wipe for sunglasses is attached inside one of the pockets with an elastic cord, and the tagless label promises to not irritate.
The Zoic Downtown Pants are available in six sizes, from Small to XXX-Large, and in the colors Grey and Black.

Have been looking for some versatile bike pants that aren't the ridiculous spandex (can never wear those)...I commute to work, do a lot of long rides on weekends, and everything in between. Zoic has just captured what many people want in pants. Those people that want normal looking pants, very stretchy as the name says, and they are EXTREMELY comfortable in just everyday wear at the office while not looking out of place. 36 waist so I got an XL, fits just perfect. Might order another pair actually now that I'm reviewing them because if I ruined my one pair I have, I would not be happy ha.
What is the inseam on the XL?
