  • trouserswith flys

    Hi, I hope this is the right forum for this question. Where does one go to get trousers (regular or sweat pants) with long flys?
    Need them to catheterize while in the wheelchair without having to pull off the pants. The current incarnation of USAJeans <http://usajeans.net/> is very expensive & not the family-run business I recall from a few years back. Thx fw

    The trousers and jeans with the best flys are Rollinmoden. They're expensive, but I wait for sales. Fly goes all the way to where the seams meet at the lowest point in the crotch.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

        Rolli-Moden does not currently have a USA distributor, so you have to purchase from Germany and pay for shipping. I like John's idea.

            I miss Rolli-Moden. Their products are excellent. I have made some purchases using Google German translator but it's expensive for shipping and difficult communicating.

            I think Darlene from USA Jeans has joined with others and is now "wheelchair apparel". I am getting some pants from them now, over the phone they have been good to work with.

              My husband wears pants from https://www.adaptationsbyadrian.com.
              He prefers the Velcro fly closure but zipper is probably available.

                  Yup, their jeans will now cost you a Benjamin per pair. Having said that, I bit the sour weinie and ordered two pairs about a month ago. They were delivered in less than two weeks and are very high quality. Plenty of room to take care of cathing ( I use a Betty hook) and good fit. Darlene still works there and they were good to work with. I also use Adaptations by Adrian, but they are very thin material. Good for summer, but won't last long, IMHO. I'd like to try regular jeans, but I just can't get past the constant plumber's crack.......

                      I take my jeans to a seamstress in town and she removes the old zipper down to the seam and puts in a longer zipper. You should be able to find someone who sews in town. Usually costs me about $15 for her to buy the longer zipper and sew it in.

                        I love carecure. I learn everything here. This issue of having my hose kinked because of my zipper being too short has been driving me nuts.
                        I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

                          could you also put the zipper in upside down open from the bottom?

                            Well said Nonoise, and that is an interesting mental image you have presented

                              I wouldn't recommend this, as it would place the zipper pull right under your perineum, and could cause skin breakdown. Velcro is perhaps a better option, especially if you go commando.
