The Ultimate Pants for .. Anything

Functional suit trousers offering complete freedom of movement made for elegance and extreme sports.

Optimised for activity, leisure, travel and professional performance – worthy of a secret agent.

UNITE OPPOSITES WITH HOSN

As a secret agent, you need to deliver the best under pressure – and keep looking good. So we figured we'd start our design process at the top:

The best pants are good enough only if they are good enough for the best.

Of Course there's a Bazillion Features 

 but the only thing that really matters:

A lot of people put incredible effort into creating the most versatile trousers in the world, and we are proud to share them with you today.

Fits what you Love

Hosn reimagine the way pants can support individual freedom.

We gathered top athletes, military and law enforcement special forces, outdoor survival experts, passionate extreme sports enthusiasts, martial artists and combat instructors, filmmakers, parents, pensioners, entrepreneurs, globetrotters, digital nomads, butlers and stunt world record holders – all for one thing:

Top Quality & Fabrics

We believe that healthy fabrics, fair trade, and long-lasting quality are the basis for our mission to support healthy movement and freedom across the globe. After all, Hosn might spend as much time hugging your skin as your partner.

Hosn are manufactured entirely in the EU. Our fabrics are a cozy weave of caressing elegance made in a traditional mill in Italy. Engineering, design and production are done in Austria. Manufactured by a long-standing supplier of police uniforms and evening wear.


Respecting your Skin, Respecting our Planet

We all share a responsibility to protect our planet. We strive to stay at the cutting edge to ensure the most sustainable Hosn possible.

Hosn consist of bluesign approved, sustainable fabrics and OekoTex certified materials. 


Hosn pack cutting-edge functionality into a design of timeless elegance.

 Patent-pending shirt-clips keep your shirt tucked at all times.

The padded waistband protects your hip from impacts and chafing.

Engineered for tactical and battle belts, but why not go crazy?

Your Hosn come with an ingenious pocket system that you'll wonder how you ever lived without.

The secret pocket keeps your valuables secure.

The thigh pockets keep your hands free while maintaining visual elegance.

The back pocket on the left has two compartments for mags, hankies, lights and the like.

The zippered card pocket – hidden under the waistband, ideal for business cards and spare keys.


Timeless Fit

Tailored by a top runway designer, Hosn are guaranteed to be snug on your curves, sporting a timeless look.

Do you prefer a classic unisex straight look, or a ladies' cut that embraces your curves, or a skin-tight athletic fit? 


Sizes

Select your style and size after the campaign, ranging from XS to XXL, W26" to W48", EU sizes 44 to 64 for gentlemen and 34 to 58 for ladies, or sizes 2 to 24 for ladies in the US. 

Maximum length on ready-to-wear Hosn is 36". If you have legs for days, go for your very own custom tailored Hosn.


Ultimate Individuality

Bespoke Hosn inspire ideal confidence and are available in any size (for humans ;)


Colors

Since all good things come in black and black goes with everything, Hosn come in black.

Pantone Black Beauty to be exact.


Super-Simple Care

Get the most out of your Hosn by treating them nicely and taking them on lots of adventures:

To maintain the non-tox water repellency treatment, avoid softener and occasionally tumble dry or iron at 70°C.

Enjoy the extra time saved with your quick-dry, non-iron suit pants!


Stretch Goals

We've already reached our stretch goal by making Hosn the most stretchy suit trousers in the world. Now our only goal is to share them with you.

Unfold your full potential with the elegance of Hosn, and discover new opportunities every day.


The Expertise Behind the Hosn

We are driven by a passion for unrestricted freedom and a love of ingenious solutions that make our daily lives better. We have combined our expertise into Hosn, in the hopes of enriching your life and supporting your joy of movement each and every day.

The drive behind Hosn comes from Markus Weilguny, action director and stunt coordinator for the top-featured stunt Guinness World Record of 2017, recipient of the Pioneer of European Martial Arts award and video director for Hitman. 

Markus developed the first pair of functional dress trousers with first responders, stunt performers and extreme athletes, getting overwhelmingly positive feedback. Thus, the journey began to share Hosn with the world – and with you today.


Timeline

Since 2016 we've been refining Hosn. On our quest to create the ultimate trousers, we have spent intense times with special forces and top managers to perfect Hosn.

Today, we are proud to present what we believe to be the pants of the 21st century. The culmination of functionality, timeless elegance and textile science-fiction.

Throughout 2018, we've established the manufacturing process, ensuring a smooth transition from smaller series to larger batches. Worldwide shipping should commence in time for Christmas 2019.

Super Important Note on Shipping

We offer world-wide shipping.

To get you the best rate for your individual delivery address, you'll be able to choose your shipping option on checkout after the campaign ends. That's why we don't include shipping costs during the campaign, ensuring you get the best deal for your exact location.

Costs for Express Shipping range from 13.90 to 34.90 for up to 2 kg (a Triple Pack of Hosn). Economy Shipping is available from 6.90 but might not be available in your country. Or you can pick up your Hosn in Vienna. If you're lucky, the Deliverer might even bring them by.

We work with global logistics partners, including DHL, to ensure timely and reliable delivery without the hassle of lost packages, impossible pickup times, and the like. They'll inform you of delivery before it happens, with full parcel tracking, and will attempt up to three deliveries.

Let the Deliverer take care of it! 

To Order on Kickstarter

  • Click "Back this project"
  • Select your favourite set of Hosn (did you notice the triple pack gives you the best price?) 
  • Tell us which size and style you want, by responding to our query once the campaign ends. We'll guide you with how to take measurements, if you need a hand – or a leg.
  • As soon as we have collected your orders, we'll start manufacturing. You'll receive regular progress updates until your Hosn are on the way to you.
  • We'll be happy when your Hosn get to share your adventures and make your life easier!

Risks and challenges

We currently have a Design Prototype that is complete in design and functionality. It will serve as the production sample as soon as we get enough orders together. Hosn have been in development since 2016 and have been perfected to suit the needs of professionals from management to law enforcement. Extensive testing has led us to the ultimate trousers for business and extreme sports. We look forward to hearing about your experiences in Hosn.

We have spent many months setting up a reliable production pipeline from our textile mills in Italy to our manufacturer in Austria, from global shipping partners to final quality control. We have set up collaboration agreements and alternate suppliers to mitigate risks. As with any project that sets out to break current boundaries, there are always things that can happen. Looking back at the way we have come, we are confident to find solutions through our experience and passion as new challenges arise. And we'll make sure to keep you updated as production progresses.

What we need most now is you:
- Your interest, to try if we are right to believe that Hosn are the best trousers currently available.
- Your trust, to be part of our dream of bringing more freedom and joy of movement to the world.
- Your patience, in waiting for fabrics, manufacture, QA and delivery to be completed until the Hosn can be delivered on time and find their place on your legs.

We'd be honoured to welcome you on the journey of the Hosn.
