    Thanks for posting!

    Does anyone else have good recommendations on clothing brands that have an adaptive line or work well for wearing in wheelchairs?

    My husband loves 7 for All Mankind Sport and Sport Luxe jeans as they are stretchy in all there right places, but not baggy. He gets a size or two larger , and the legs are still slimmer than most jeans. The stretch really helps. They go on sale quite often too and last for years and years without tearing.  - Brooke

    Hey Brooke, what store or site do you purchase those jeans from?

    @Sterlion you can purchase them from the 7 for all mankind website. What I would do is go on there and  sign up for their emails. They ALWAYS have crazy sales. We wait for a sale to come up and buy then as they can be expensive. But the prices are worth it- all my husbands jeans have lasted 5+ years with no rips. They’re very soft too.
