A constant theme throughout recent releases from OBEY is the maturity in their design and how the brand is choosing to step away from focusing on their familiar bold graphics, and rather diversifying by introducing new cut and sew silhouettes.
As part of this development in the brands line, one of the hugely popular styles to emerge is the OBEY ‘Traveler’ pant, which infuses various influences that include military and climbing, as well as more casual sportswear silhouettes. The trousers offer a relaxed fit but are able to be worn styled up or down and works for a range of looks in any situation. The ‘Traveler’ pants are available in different materials and features an elasticated drawcord waistband, slightly longer rise and a relaxed fit around the hips that tapers through to the leg.
To commemorate the release of the Traveler pant, OBEY have put together this short yet insightful video that not only covers the story of the design and construction of the Traveler pant, but also covers some key moments in pant design from various notable streetwear companies across the years.
