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 Somonte XX features a modified fit compared to the stock model - based on a size XXL, the waist has been elasticated, and the top block has been widened (adapted to the MATiAS Rivera fit). The legs feature a slightly more aggressive taper, but keep a comfortably wide leg opening. The real stars are the pockets, of which there are three - two front zipper pockets with locking zips and a single cargo pocket at the rear.. 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 a highly textured 18oz Italian loop dobby jacquard, woven from a blend of cotton, acrylic, and recycled yarns. The alternating textures of this fabric are used for different panels on each shirt, meaning no two will be exactly alike. It's thick and heavy, a great outer and mid layer fabric that will relax over time, but never lose its heft - MATiAS have rinsed and preshrunk the fabric to remove any guesswork on your part.
Fits true to size with an adjustable waistband. Wash cold and hang dry.
