A Denim for All Seasons

DUER’s New Lightweight Denim Can Take on the Summer Heat

June 6, 2019 Briefings By

Most of us retire our denim to a dark dresser drawer once the summer sun starts beating down. No matter how sick the fades are on your 20 ounce selvedge jeans, heavyweight denim just can’t beat the heat, and the last thing anyone wants to deal with is sweat running down their legs. The folks over at DUER might have solved this age-old problem, crafting the Weightless Denim Beachcomber Pant to keep your gams cool as temps creep upward. These denim pants weigh in at a petite 6 ounces, making them virtually weightless in the world of pants; most jeans are considered “lightweight” at a 12-ounce weight. Made from a unique blend of cotton, Spandex, and Coolmax, these might be the lightest pair of denim around — and as far as construction, they feature DUER’s signature gusset as well as a Silvadur treatment to maintain freshness between washes. Rounded out with a covert button at the hem to keep your pants rolled up, you’ve got a pair of pants that deserve “wardrobe staple” status.
