I found this article a few months ago. I might buy a pair of Rev'it Lombards when I have extra cash.

"...weave itself provides the protection, here incorporating Cordura for strength and CoolMax for breathability. Knee armor is included and hip armor is optional. These fit and wear like normal jeans but have an extremely high degree of on-bike comfort and safety...

RideApart Recommended? Yes. These are the best combination of style and safety currently available."
