Thread Theory

Classic, relaxed-fit, straight legged trousers designed to be ready for anything!  These pants are roomy enough to allow for a full range of movement but still offer a flattering fit with back darts to shape the seat.  This pattern is the perfect base to create everything from hard-wearing denim jeans to rugged water-resistant hiking pants.

Create pair after purpose-built pair with single welt or patch pockets, curved front pockets, optional cargo pockets, and useful knee and hem reinforcements.  You can even add an optional lining to protect the skin from uncomfortable waterproofed materials of to add a warm layer of flannel to winter work pants.

This pattern, as part of the Alpine Outdoors Collection, is a hard-wearing design with a classic fit.  Create a hand-made wardrobe of these designs so as to always be comfortably and stylishly ready for the next adventure!
