Why choose LYCRA® XFIT technology?

The challenge:

In order to find jeans that offer the comfort and wearability of yoga pants, consumers often have to sacrifice the authentic denim look and smooth handfeel they desire. Imagine the reduced returns and increased consumer satisfaction you could achieve if you offered jeans that have it all!  

The solution:

LYCRA® XFIT technology is the solution you’ve been looking for. Using patented technologies, it’s possible to create 4-way stretch jeans that look like traditional cotton denim, but deliver 360-degree comfort and a 3D fit that moves with the wearer.
