We just produced a new, small batch of our men’s trousers. And while we were at it, we carefully upgraded one crucial detail: the front pockets.
As phones grow larger, and with so many Zephyr wearers being active cyclists, we wanted to further improve the day-to-day experience. So for this new version—we refer to it as v1.1—we went back into prototyping mode for the pockets.
Here’s what’s new: The new front pockets on this model are a lot deeper. A lot. This is a photo of the final prototype. Have a look:
Before (right) and after (left)
If you look closely, you’ll notice the extension. At the highest it’s about an extra 5cm, at the deepest almost 10cm extra. It makes a world of difference.
Fun fact: The men’s model is by far the most sought after model in our line-up. We’re very happy that (despite the name) this model is particularly popular across genders: This classic men’s cut fits well for most gents, but also for lots of ladies who prefer their trousers a little wider and lower on the hip. So if you prefer your front pockets extra deep, give these a shot!
Numbers can be abstract. How deep are these pockets? This big:
That’s right, you could #EDC your full coffee setup in these front pockets. But please don’t, it’d look super dorky.
Also, as you know we believe in sustainable fashion. So if you already have a pair of Zephyrs, don’t throw them out! Your local alterations shop should be able to alter your pockets for just a few bucks. Just show them this photo and they should be able to help you out. (If you do, we’d love to see a photo!)
The new trousers are up in our store as of now.
