Umit Benan in Florence with his re-done JNCO pants needs a mixte frame bike for sure.
Benan says he envisions pants like this on a “stylish young Cuban businessman” from the “freer and happier time” of pre-Castro Cuba.
It reminds me of those Soulful Commando tight and baggy jeans. At least you don’t need a chainguard for these.
