Former Under Armour Executives have gotten together and turned their attention to making the best jeans possible at Revtown. Using a proprietary blend of Italian-milled denim along with a bit of stretch — the same stuff that gives football uniforms its durability and yoga pants their comfort — the brand has made a pair of pants that you’ll truly never want to take off. The athletic stretch denim keeps up no matter where you get off to, from the office to a weekend hike and anywhere in between. This denim won’t let you down and is up to the most rigorous activities; one of the Revtown founders even hiked the Appalachian Trail in a pair. And the best part about Revtown is that by selling directly to you, you can get your denim for a killer price.
