I caught on to 20Jeans.com through a Facebook ad and decided to check them out. The first thing that caught my eye was the price of their jeans, shorts, shirts and accessories: nothing is over $50. 20Jeans is a Los Angeles based company and takes special care when sourcing their materials, therefore the prices are passed on to the customer. The other thing that I really liked was their ethical awareness of their product:
I’m against human suffering – it’s a personal choice. Are your jeans made responsibly?
Yes! We do not work with any brand, dealer or wholesaler with a possibly unethical practice taking place. We enjoy the unique advantage of close working relationships with our handful of trusted sources. This is no massive faceless operation we’re running; it’s more like a Mom and Pop shop… (except that none of us actually are Moms or Pops.)

In all fairness, these are "skinny" fit. I am not a hipster or skinny by any means: I'm a pragmatic rider who is always looking for functionality. I also didn't want to try and make a fashion statement with my attire when riding, so no neon or strange colors - just plain black.
The DeTourist short is made of 97% cotton and 3% spandex - which give them a stretchy feel - and dudes with big legs (like myself) can rock them without feeling like they're crushing their nuts or wearing something from the Junior's section in Nordstrom. They need to be washed in cold and hung dry, I've gone days without washing them after multiple rides; they did not stretch out nor stay soaked from sweat.
The material is thick, pockets are nice, and the belt loops positioned so you don't give the world a view of your ass crack every time you're crouching.
