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 just brimming with little peeks of selvedge.
The waistband is its own piece, and contains a woven drawstring that can be used to adjust the fit on the fly. The real stars are the pockets, of which there are only two - both zipper pockets feature locking zips that can be affixed into partially open or closed positions for maximum security. 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.
Made from a 100% hemp fabric, the "Oaku" fabric clocks in at a respectable 14oz, with the breeziness and drape of linen but the thickness and comfort of cotton. The weight and weave of the fabric come together exceptionally well, easy to wear in just about any season.
Fits true to size with an adjustable waistband. Wash cold and hang dry.
