I’ve come to realize my ancient but trustworthy black Lululemon “Bust a Move” moto pants are starting to show the wear and tear — some of the stitching on the back pockets is worn out, and I’m noticing the fabric is getting thin where the seat is sewn together.

I’ve worn these for everything from impromptu hikes to fancy dinners out with heels and a nice top, and I’m despairing of what I’ll do when I have to retire them. Lulu doesn’t make them anymore, of course. I looked on eBay and of course the only ones being sold are too small for me.

I love the subtle moto styling, which is usually really hard to find on a cut that actually fits me — most moto pants are simply too narrow in the thighs on me. And with the move towards high rises and cropped lengths, I’m thinking I may be out of luck for a good replacement. My current pants are full length and can be rolled or cuffed, which I love.

If anyone has any suggestions for eventual replacements, I welcome them! So far, Lulu and Athleta have nothing that compares.
