March 17, 2020 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


Wearing jeans to work is the new norm, even when it comes to the more sartorially conservative professions like finance. That said, sometimes a pair of blue jeans just won’t cut it — and in those times the last thing you want to grab is a pair of stiff, baggy khakis that make you look like your dad. Revtown has created the perfect pant for just such occasions. Available in four garment-dyed colors, the Khaki Jean is made with Revtown’s signature Decade Denim for a perfect blend of mobility, durability and comfort. With the classic five-pocket design, the Khaki Jean is versatile enough to go from workday to weekend with ease. So throw away those saggy khakis and pull on a pair of Revtown’s Khaki Jeans.
