To create the most versatile pants ever, we had to start from the yarn. We searched for years to find the ideal fabric with the soft feel and look of a cotton fabric, the durability and toughness of a nylon, stretch, and stain resistance. We finally found the ideal partner to create this fabric at a fully vertically integrated, sustainable, Bluesign approved mill in Sweden.

The key to the Evolution Pant is the nylon Supplex® fabric. Nylon is an incredibly durable fiber used in many products from rock climbing harnesses to parachutes. Supplex® takes the durability of nylon to the next level. The uncommonly strong fibers are air-texturized to make them incredibly soft. Supplex® takes hundreds of these extremely fine, air-texturized nylon fibers and spins them into thick durable yarns. The added fibers cause the yarns themselves to be stronger, but also more dynamic. The resulting fabric is abrasion resistant, ultra-durable, with the soft hand feel of cotton, and the perfect drape and stretch.

                                                                         
                                                  

Available in:

  • Color: Charcoal, Navy, and Kahki
  • Sizes: 28-40 
  • Inseam: Short 30inches, Regular 32 in extendable to 34 in, Long 36 in extendable to 38 in.

CARE:

Due to our pieces having a Durable Water Repellent application, they will absorb less odor and staining. Thus, they can and should be washed less frequently.

CARE: Wash with like colors with mild detergent cold. Tumble dry low or lay flat. Do not use fabric softener during wash as this may damage the water repellency. Do NOT bleach. Do NOT dry clean.

A BETTER PROCESS: 

Why Bluesign? The Bluesign® system regulates and reduces environmental impact through the entire textile supply chain from yarn to the finished product. The system reviews the use of chemistry, energy usage, water and air emissions, worker safety and consumer safety. By developing guidelines and monitoring the implementation of the bluesign® system, Bluesign Technologies is encouraging the textile industry to increase their efforts in sustainability and reduce their environmental impact across the entire textile supply chain.

Western Rise was founded on a desire to make multi-functional clothing that looks amazing and performs even better. We were overwhelmed by the amount of stuff in the world and wanted to simplify our lives and focus on the things that actually matter. Stylish, versatile, performance clothing allows you to do more with less meaning you can ditch the big suitcase, travel light, do more and see more.

It took a lot of people to bring this project to you, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We truly believe that it is not only our responsibility, it’s our obligation to protect the world we are part of and enjoy. Because of this we are 1% For The Planet Members and donate 1% of our revenue (gross revenue, not profit) to a group of certified nonprofits.

 

Please note that per Kickstarter guidelines, we cannot use this crowdfunding project to raise funds for charity. We will certainly support our beneficiary organizations outside of Kickstarter, and celebrate this commitment with our backer community.

We can't say it enough. Thank you for supporting believing in us. We can't wait to get these new pants in your hands. 

                                                           

In honor of our third birthday as a company, we are launching into a new category, the next generation of apparel. What better way to launch than to share our project with you first. We wouldn’t be here without the loyal support of our customers. It is your support, feedback, and encouragement that have brought us to this point. It has been a long journey to get here and we are excited to get started on the next phase together.

Risks and challenges

We have been in the clothing business since 2014 and have brought over 24 styles to market. Our team has extensive experience in fabric design and manufacturing high-quality apparel as well as fulfilling lots of orders. We have our manufacturers lined up, and our production team is waiting for our signal. We know what we're doing, and you should be confident that we will deliver what we promise when we say we will.

We have dealt with our fair share of manufacturing hiccups and always deal with them in a transparent, responsible way to keep our customers not just happy with their products, but also proud to support us. Should any issues come up, you can be confident we will handle them with transparency and the utmost care for you, our backers.

Supply Chain Risk: We're incredibly proud of our supply chain, and have a lot of confidence that we can make what we say we'll make when we say we'll make it. But sometimes things happen, like fabric delays due to yarn being stuck in customs. We add time padding for these events, but sometimes it's not enough. If anything should arrive late we will get through it together.

We're deeply committed to and excited about delivering a high-quality product, on time, that we know you'll enjoy for a long time to come.

Thank you for your support! We are deeply grateful that you're on this journey with us!
