Do you tuck your jeans into your boots?

I just ordered a pair of Alpinestars SMX-4 boots and will be wearing jeans for my rides to work and most rides around town. My question is do mos tof you that wear jeans and racing style boots tuck the jeans into the boots or wear them outside of the boot and does it matter how you wear them?

Thanks!

When I wore jeans I'd put them over the outside of the boots.

If you have average to large calf muscles you'll definately have to put the jeans on the outside of the boots. A*'s don't have as much adjustment in the calf circumfrence as the Sidi's do. Unless you wear wide leg'd bell bottoms, you won't have any problems with the jeans on the outside of the boots, and if they're not tapered and zipped like race leathers, it can be very uncomfortable to fold and tuck the jeans inside the boots.

Tucking your pants in is gay and feels retarded

I did both depending on my mood, but normally when I wear jeans I wear my hiking boots.

When I wear my GPX boots, I tuck in my jeans. I must have smaller calves- that takes up the extra space in the tops of the boots.

Jeans out of boots, leathers inside boots.

Sidi's upper level boots like the vertigos and vertigo corsas have a cable system that allows you to cinch the calf in on the boot. Check out my recent 'gear' thread to see what mine look like. They rock, worth the $$ like whoa.

For a warm weather jacket I like it alot. It's the JR Reactor jacket and has CE rated armor in the shoulders and elbows...armor in the back and sides and breathes pretty well. The liner which I haven't worn makes it waterproof. It has a pocket for an extra helmet shield and is set up for your electronics if you desire to use that.

I got it for $149 I believe but forget where I ordered it from. I'll check that out and let you know if you want.
