What is it? Barbell Apparel launched their recent success through a Kickstarter campaign, and they have brought a fantastic product to the athletic community. American made and born in Vegas, Barbell Apparel promises their denim can handle whatever your day throws at you.
What do I think? I wore the Slim Athletic Fit in the light wash, and my first thought when I took them out of the package was that they were beautiful. The light wash looks and feels like your favorite jeans you’ve worn for years, but without being worn down. I have the muscular thighs, but a smaller backside, and the stretch denim accommodates and complements both areas without sacrificing comfort. These jeans seem versatile enough to fit a range of body types.
Why do you need it? If you’ve been wanting to try this new hybrid of athletic fit jeans, get yourself some Barbell Jeans. You can dress these up or down, depending on the occasion, and you won’t feel the need to switch into your sweats as soon as you get home.
When should you use it? I’ve worn mine to dinner, walking around Chicago, and on a roadtrip. They are hands down the most comfortable pair of jeans I own. I’ll likely be picking up another pair or two.
How do you get it? Barbell Jeans are sold directly through their website. The jeans I reviewed retail for $149. They also have a new Kickstarter campaign for a different style of pants and shorts that you can pre-order online as well.
