Don’t you hate when you find the perfect pair of jeans… but they’re not made to move? Aesthetically, they’re ace. But sitting in them all day? Working? Doing backflips? Near impossible. This is especially the case when we’re talking about movement-restricting raw denim styles. Well, Mission Workshop’s latest denim collection is all about embracing what makes you move.
The San Francisco-based brand just launched an innovative new denim jacket and accompanying jeans style. The Stack Denim Jacket, which sells for $485 on the brand’s e-commerce page, is made from a breathable and water-resistant blended twill. The high-performance garment features a special four-way stretch denim that is woven by textile brand Schoeller in Switzerland.
The $285 Mission Jean is a modernized, high-performance version of the classic blue jean. Created with four-way stretch fabric from Italian Mectex S.p.a., these pants are designed to keep their shape no matter what adventure you put them through.
“While wear-testing these jeans, a few of us wore them for over ten days straight to work, while traveling, on a bike, to the climbing gym, and even to bed — and they never chafed, smelled, wrinkled, or bagged out,” the brand shared on their page. That’s seriously impressive.
The company was founded in 2009 and continues to deliver innovative products created with fabrics designed to keep up with our busy lifestyles.
“We take great pride in designing and producing denim products that are both comfortable and structured, and our new collection strikes this balance beautifully,” Mission Workshop co-founder Bart Kyzar said in a statement. “Take our Mission Jean, for example. The fabric of these pants has the structured appearance of workwear with the feel and movement you get from knit track pants.”
