Ledge Stretchy, Stainproof Pants

By: on October 28, 2013

While my immediate concern upon spilling an entire cup of coffee on my crotch is searing the hair off my balls and neutralizing my baby-making potential, once I stop screaming and have received a pudding pop to console me, I start to think about how I probably just ruined another pair of pants. Or, at the very least, have added another pair of pants to the pile of laundry that may or may not get washed before the end of the year.

Peter Kirk, creator of Ledge Pants, hopes to put an end to pant staining. And also pant ripping, pant constriction, and pant digging into my gut. After destroying many pairs of his own pants while climbing, cycling, and eating sloppily, Kirk decided to find an alternative solution to buying yet another pair of Carhartts or Dickies. Ledge Pants look like any customary chinos or dress pants purchase but, like dress pants sweat pants, their 10% elastane content gives them Armstrong prowess. You know, they're stretchy. Movable. Versatile. Unoffensive to the bellybutton. The Pants' exterior is designed from a fabric that not only repels both water and stains, but forcefully rejects them. According to Kirk, "Liquids slide off of the outside as if they were made of glass." (Stains can also be rubbed or laundered away.) Inside, the stain-fighting materials resist your body's own contribution to pant defiling, wicking away sweat, plus urine on those occasions you laugh so hard you pee a little bit.

Ledge Pants currently seek Kickstarter funding, which means a full production run will occur, and first pairs issued to project backers, only if the pants achieve $20,000 in pledges by November 21, 2013.

December 2013 Update: Ledge Pants exceeded their crowdfunding goal and are now available for direct purchase through the company's website--follow the link below.
