Flyte Denim: Technical jeans for the minimalist traveler

¥2,312,059

Hi Kickstarter,

We are excited to launch our new denim brand on Kickstarter. Wouldn’t it be nice to have one pair of jeans that lets you travel light in style? We started Flyte Denim to create a new type of functional jeans that fit the urban lifestyle and modern travel, featuring technologically advanced stretch denim, ergonomic design and high-quality Japanese craftsmanship.

Simply put, a sleek pair of jeans for those who

  • like to travel light in style
  • prefer to go bagless / walletless
  • are minimalists
 

With the concept of the minimalist traveler, Flyte Denim has both simple style and functionality designed to carry your essentials (smartphone, cards, keys, cash.. etc.) securely without restricting the freedom of your movement and appearance. Available in men's and women's fit.

All Of The Storage Without The Baggage

User Testimonials

To create the most comfortable yet stylish jeans ever, we searched for months to find the ideal fabric. The key to the Flyte Denim is technologically advanced 4-way stretch denim. As one of the leading stretch denim on the market, ISKO Blueskin™ works at providing both performance and fashion-focused demands in the one fabric. Featuring a stretch that works 4-ways, the fabric moves with the body, which makes it ideal for today's modern activewear where comfort and style are essential - all due to a unique woven technique that provides exceptional mobility and high stretch retainment.

We love jeans. They are always in fashion. The problem is that technology has changed how people live and travel, but jeans haven't changed. Smartphone or wallet placed in the front pocket feels uncomfortable, but the back pocket is the first place pickpockets target. A clean, slim cut looks nice but is not very comfortable on the move.

After a lot of prototyping and modifications, we have achieved a pair that has both high functionality & style that we can wear for traveling, cycling, a night out or all daily activities.

Flyte jeans are locally made in Japan while most apparel companies manufacture their products overseas seeking a lower labor cost and higher efficiency. Honestly speaking, our local partnered factory doesn't have state-of-the-art machines or facilities as other giant fast fashion brands do. We are particular about the concept of “combining the Japanese tradition and technologically advanced fabric” for our first product line, but this hasn't been easy. Ergonomic detailed patterning and elaborate sewing of Flyte jeans have been realized thanks to skillful artisans who have supported quality Japanese jeans industry for a long period.

Premium Double-sided Money Clip

Meet another useful-sidekick. Our sleek money clip is double-sided, so you can organize multiple currencies while traveling. Each piece is made in Tokyo, Japan. It has matte-finished silver surface using nickel-plated polished brass as its core.

Flyte Denim ×1 + Money Clip ×1 = Free Shipping Worldwide!

For the moment, our jeans sizing are offered in even numbers. This is because our stretch fabric has high elasticity performance to cover different body types. Our denim is rinse washed once to take out any shrinkage.

Men's Jeans: offered in Slim Fit. Dark Indigo. Slim through the thigh, knee and calf with a taper. Waist sizes offered are 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38. 28-32 come with a 32" inseam length, 34-38 come with 33".

Women's Jeans: offered in Skinny Fit. Dark Indigo. Waist sizes offered are 24, 26, 28, 30, 32. 24-26 come with a 29" inseam length, 28-32 come with 30". The stretch is perfect for women of all shapes.

What makes this fabric stand apart from others, is its ability to hold and support the body.

Join Us and Help Spread The Word - We're excited to get Flyte Denim brand launched on Kickstarter. After you support us, we would love it if you could help us spread the word with friends.

Risks and challenges

We have already build trusted relationships and network with high-skilled Japanese craftsmen and manufacturers who sew more than tens of thousands of jeans for high end brands every month. The pants you see in our photos and video were made using the actual materials and factory.
Once our campaign is completed and funded, we are ready to go straight into purchasing all the materials from our suppliers and then into production with our manufacturer.

As with any manufactured good, unexpected delays in production are always a possibility and may push back our estimated delivery date. We’ve set our schedule to accommodate some changes, but will let you know immediately if we foresee any updates to the timeline for delivery. Customs may vary from country to country. We recommend checking your country’s tax and customs laws.

If the product were not what you expected, we'd do our best to help, but we won't offer refunds on Kickstarter items. If you wanted to exchange your pair for a different size, you would pay for the return to us, but we would pay for the new pair to be shipped out to you. All items must be in the condition you received them with all hangtags still attached. We accept exchanges up to 30 days of you receiving the jeans.

We're serious about taking good care of our backers. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions.
