WHAT WE LIKED
– Great fit in the knees
– Makes us look like James Stewart…kinda
– Sleeves are form-fitting and not overly blousy
– James Stewart signature in the leather is a nice touch
– Buckle system in waist is burly; should hold up throughout a long season

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
– Pants ran a little small in the waist

WHAT WE REALLY THINK
The long and the short of it is that the JS Collection is some of, if not the, best-looking Answer gear we’ve seen in quite some time. Also, the fit has been taken a step in the right direction as well, though they may have gone a little far the other way. Last season, we felt the pants ran a little big in the waist, and they have clearly made an adjustment. Now, however, they may just be a hair small in the waist… that said, the fit is perfect in the legs, butt, and crotch. Best of all, we sort of look like JS7, if only while we are standing; who we look like actually riding the bike is another story.
