MATiAS pieces fall somewhere between avant-garde and vintage workwear, into the realm of "post-heritage" - where the techniques and materials of the past intersect with new ideas and original styles. Designed and manufactured in-house at their LA workshop, MATiAS produce some of the best fits we've experienced, with subtle and sometimes unusual tailoring details, employed deliberately to perfect drape, enhance comfort, & compliment their remarkable fabric choices.
The Somonte Pant is a not an easy pant and not a pair of jeans, but a secret third thing. It's cut with a relaxed top block, featuring full thighs and a comfortable medium-high rise, with legs that taper fairly aggressively down to a slim leg opening. They're assembled in a single-panel construction, with a single seam on each leg, shaping darts in the front and back, no yoke, and a cleanly finished interior.
The waistband is its own piece, and contains an adjustable drawstring that can be used to enhance the fit on the fly. The two front zipper pockets feature locking zips that can be affixed into partially open or closed positions for maximum security, while the two bucket pockets in the back are open top for easy access. These pockets are deep and spacious, more than enough for whatever you were fitting into 5 pockets on your jeans. Meanwhile, the fly zips up with a normal zipper, and then buttons closed with a custom patinated button and toggle closure.
It's made from "Super Slub" denim, an aptly named cotton fabric with a rich indigo dye and a seriously intense slub texture throughout. Over time, as the indigo is worn and washed out, this low tension fabric will develop unique high contrast fades throughout.
Fits true to size with an adjustable waistband. Wash cold and hang dry.
