Street- and sportswear label Timezone is working together with South Tyrolean mountaineering specialist Salewa. For spring/summer 2014 they will launch a climbing jean for men and women. The fitting was done with a climbing harness, which guarantees the perfect fit. To ensure its strength, the stretch denim is very thick and hardwearing but at the same time lightweight to allow complete freedom of movement. Authentic washings make the jeans look clean. Special details include colored zippers and stitchings on the back pocket.

“The new climbing jean shall support and not constrain, but at the same time not making compromises in terms of lifestyle, ” says Lisa Sinnegger, designer at Salewa climbing clothes, who was in charge of the design of the climbing jeans.

There will be one jean style for women and one for men, available in selected stores. The delivery date is December 15, 2013. Distribution will be handled by Salewa Germany. The jeans will retail for €120.
