Our goal was to create a single pair of pants that worked in every situation, and to simplify our clothing and our lives, so we could focus on the things that really mattered.

Western Rise today debuted The Evolution Pant on Kickstarter, a durable, sustainable and ethically-made pant designed for all day, every day – no matter the weather, season or occasion. The Evolution Pant hits the sweet spot between comfort and style, combining the look of a lightweight cotton pant with the highly technical, water and stain-proof functionality that performs for any activity.

When co-founder and creative director of Western Rise, Will Watters could not find a pair of pants that worked for travel, outdoors and every day, he and his founding partner Kelly Watters, set out to design and build them – from the yarn up.

“Our goal was to create a single pair of pants that worked in every situation,” said Will Watters. “We wanted to simplify our clothing and our lives, so we could focus on the things that really mattered.”

The result is a modern, timeless pant that fits the bill for athletic and leisure activities – allowing you to do more and own less.

The Evolution Pant is made with Supplex® nylon fabric that was hand-picked from a sustainable, vertically integrated manufacturing facility in Sweden. With the feel of cotton, two-way stretch, and the durability that comes from modern fiber technology, Supplex® is the key to the pants’ breathability, durability and versatility.

“Since the beginning, we have set out to create the next generation of clothing. Truly versatile pieces that work together to look amazing and function even better,” said Watters. “We want to change how the fashion industry operates – giving consumers better options to simplify their wardrobes with fewer pieces that are built to last. The Evolution Pant is one step toward helping to change the game.”

The Evolution Pant:

  • Is highly functional - can be worn non-stop, all day, every day no matter the weather, season, or occasion. Ready for travel, outdoors, and every day.
  • Is extremely durable and wrinkle resistant - Supplex® nylon yarns are incredibly strong yet extremely soft and resist wrinkles.
  • Is stain proof - sheds water, dirt, wine, beer, and coffee.
  • Is pill-proof and highly abrasion resistant - biking, hiking, climbing or navigating airports, no sharp corners or rough surface can hurt this fabric.
  • Breathes extremely well - due to the twill weave and extremely fine Supplex® fibers, The Evolution Pant breathes like a high-end lightweight cotton chino.
