This holiday season, we're adding a new category to our core fleece collection: heavyweight sweatpants. They are crafted out of the same hefty 500gsm fleece that we employ on our crewnecks, pullovers and zip hoodies, and feature a unique cut that we spent quite a bit of time developing.
Compared to the average sweatpant, ours features a slightly higher rise for comfort. We designed a triangular gusset that runs down the top half of the thigh to give the wearer added room and comfort in the top block while still allowing the sweatpant to taper nicely for a clean, modern fit. The pants are finished off with ribbed bottom cuffs and a drawstring waist for easy tightening.
We're willing to bet that our sweatpants are amongst the heaviest on the market; combined with our tapered fit, though, the pants never look bulky or sloppy. They are comfortable enough to lounge around the home in, but smart enough to wear out for a run to the grocery store or to jump on a long-haul flight. There are many words we can use to describe our sweatpants, but versatility is probably the most important one. We think you'll agree once you put them on.
You might notice in these photos that we are highlighting a new fleece colorway: yarn-dyed indigo. It is knit to the same specs as our other three flagship colors, but due to the indigo dye process, this color has a slightly softer and hairier face while maintaining the trademark heft. Look closely and you'll see the beautiful color variation which will only become more pronounced as it's washed and worn over time. Indigo Heavyweight Fleece launches this season in all three top silhouettes, as well as our brand new sweatpant.
Look for our new sweatpants to debut on 3sixteen.com on Friday, December 7th at noon EST; they'll be available in store at our LA Flagship later that day, and will be a mainstay in the collection for seasons to come. We will also be releasing our new Indigo heavyweight fleece on the same day.
