For the 49'ers of the California Gold Rush and Spike Drivers on the Transcontinental Railroad, heavy riveted canvas and denim trousers were state of the art. It was revolutionary when Levis Strauss filed his patent on them in 1873. The gold rush ended and the transcontinental railroad was completed, but fabric and clothing technology have continued to advance.
Today four-way stretch fabrics with waterproof breathable technology have become standard in outdoor and military applications. Their durability and performance have eclipsed cotton canvas as the F150 has passed up the horse and buggy.
The T3 Werkpant was created to usher in a new era of work pants. These pants are detailed with our hooded no-snag pen/knife pocket, thigh and hip stuff pockets with bonded zippers and riveted corners. They feature four-way stretch fabric with a bonded fleece lining, waterproof breathable membrane and stain resistant DWR (durable water repellent) coating.
Welcome to your generation of workwear.
Note: The current run of the T3 WerkPants has a relaxed fit to accommodate layering, if you plan on wearing them without a base layer you may want to consider a size down from your normal jeans.
