Anyone wearing "Gusset" brand jeans

A local shop here has a brand of Kevlar enforced jeans made by Diamond Gusset. Has anyone tried these? I'm looking for something I can wear on the ride to work and at work.

I have a couple pair of these jeans but in the non kevlar. My take on the diamond gusset is that on a cruiser they would be find for longer distances because you sit on your tailbone. On a standard like the versus you sit more upright. The extra seams from the diamond gusset can be felt after awhile so wear your padded bicycle shorts!

First let me state that I can't wear regular jeans. Feels like I'm sitting on a rope. A friend of mine that is about my size had gusset jeans and he let me try them on just a 50 mile ride. For me, I'm glad I brought my regular pants too on that ride because after about 20 miles, I changed them at a gas station.

Since I always wear protective overpants too, I find that casual dress slacks with "no rope" are much more comfortable.
