Parachute Trousers


This jean is made from a Japanese ripstop box-woven fabric. 
Ripstop is a traditional and ingenious way of making extremely strong yet lightweight textiles. (Think parachutes, commando uniforms, jujitsu kimonos, racing sails, etc.) If there’s a rip, it stops at the edge of the box. 

More ripstropotriva: It’s hard to grip (which is why a lot of martial arts practitioners love it) so if you find yourself in an impromptu grappling situation, count yourself lucky if you’re wearing these pants. 

These fit a bit small, so order one size bigger than you normally wear.
