Specifically, the pants are made from a special warp-knit fabric known as Japanese Primeflex polyester, which Ministry of Supply developed. It gives unrivaled mobility, responds to your movements throughout the day, and always bounces back. That’s because Japanese Primeflex has the breathability and stretch of a knit with the feel and structure of a woven material. Plus, the hydrophilic (aka water-loving) interior pulls moisture away from the skin while it’s hydrophobic exterior evaporates that moisture. The result is a material that stays fresh and dry when you most need it to (sorry not sorry, travel sweat).
Beyond that, unlike traditional dress pants, Kinetics are machine-washable, and the company is so confident that they'll fit you well right out of the box that they'll reimburse you if any tailoring needs to be done.
At $145, they are admittedly a bit pricey, but we firmly believe they're worth it when you consider the convenience they deliver for those of us who prefer to look and feel fresh after a long flight (and can't be bothered to iron). Plus, you can feel a bit better knowing that your money is going to a company that prides itself on sustainability. Ministry of Supply is dedicated to combating waste in the famously wasteful textile industry by reducing and reusing whatever materials they can in all applicable stages of their production process.
