    Crip Clothes

    Hola, well I read about this company Rolli-Moden in a few places so I looked into them and ended up ordering a pair of pants to try out and I really like them. A lot of you are probably already familiar with them but if you're not check them out at http://www.rolli-moden.com/ They design clothes specifically for us in chairs, so they work really good. They are lower in the front and higher in the back so you don't get it wadding-up or your butt-crack hanging out, and designed to be flat in the back to prevent pressure sores. The fly is also extra-long to make cathing easier and the legs are long to cover your ankles. They are really functional and don't look like lame hospital gimp clothes, so I'm already a fan.

    Cant agree more! They are quite pricey but in my opinion, worth it - especially for jeans.

        The best place for jeans and pants for me is USA Wheelchair Jeans. They're designed for sitting, so you don't show crack when transfering. They also keep your name/measurements on file for future orders. Some say they're pricey at $47.95/pair.

            I buy normal clothes, then get a friend to elastify the waste, put a velcro fastener on the button and a keyring on the zipper. Works great!

              I haven't got an embroidery-whizz for an aunt, sadly.

              I buy whatever trousers I want, then make a concealed velcro fastening. I do avoid low-waisted garments though, as they would go TOO low when sitting.

              Jeans would be a problem to modify, but then I hate jeans anyway, so it's not a problem.

              "Elastify" - is that a real word? If not, it should be; it's great!

                Bought a pair of jeans from these people:

                They do a good job, velcro closure, cargo pockets,etc. Kinda pricey though.

                  I've worn out, pooped in, pissed on a zillion pair of pants in my time and they've all been regular pants purchased off the rack.

                    I sent them a picture of me riding a handcycle in Yosemite Valley with my first pair of "Rolli jeans" and they gave me a free pair for permission to use it in one of their catalogues. Since they do cost about $50-60 I considered it payment for my first "modelling" job! (Don't worry, sci and age 45 keeps me humble!
                    I do like how the thinner women's jeans fit and feel. The thicker ones are too rough or something. They have a lot more men's items than women's. I have a whole laundry basket full of regular pants I thought might work and I plan on- when I have EXTRA time (HA!)- trying to adapt by trimming and "elasticizing" the waistband. I just took a whole box of my pre-accident pants,and shoes to the goodwill Trying to "move on".

                      i wear off the rack dress slaks then have my seamstress lengthen the fly and remove zipper and add velcro.
                      for me biggest issue is the fly, its always way to short to use a urinal.

                        Maybe it ain't your fly that's too short

                        Just kiddin' big guy. I've always used whatever I could find to unzip/zip if I didn't have my button hook handy...ink pen, clothes hanger, knife, you name it.

                          I actually have them made longer from the crotch to the waistband so i can pull the suckers right up to my belly button so they still look normal and dont slide down while im transfering any more..

                            Most of the Rolli-Moden stuff is too tight on the thighs for me and looks too tapered in the leg. Their customer service is usually great though. I have trouble finding pants that fit well and are easy on my sensitive rear skin. They also need to be dark to hide the rare public catheter leak.

                            I needed a suit recently and had one custom made by a tailor since off the rack stuff didn't fit right. He made the pants higher in the back, with elastics at sides of the waist, a longer zipper, looser thighs and made it of slightly stretchy wool. It was pricey but looks way better than modifying other stuff.
