Take 15% off the Entire Line of DUER L2X Performance Denim

This content was produced in partnership with DUER.

Denim might be one of the best fabrics known to man, and few pieces are more essential for a man’s wardrobe than a pair of classic blue jeans. But as much as we love it, there’s no denying that some of the best aspects of denim are also some of its biggest drawbacks: Namely, that thick, canvas-like cotton weave isn’t always the most breathable, flexible, or most well-suited to active lifestyles. DUER looks to change that with its L2X Performance Denim, made for all-weather wear, including — yes — hot and humid climates.

DUER Performance Denim Slim Jeans

We love a pair of selvedge raws as much as the next denim head, and while that will always have a place in any man’s jeans rotation, there invariably comes a time when that stiff, weighty fabric isn’t the most satisfying to wear all day. That’s why you want to add at least a couple of pairs of performance jeans for those days when your raw denim is staying in the wardrobe (and not in the freezer, please). DUER’s L2X Performance Denim strikes that perfect balance between ruggedness and ease of wear with its cool-wearing stretch fabric that breathes and moves with your body, and these slim-fit jeans are the perfect cut for it. Also available in straight and relaxed fits.

DUER All-Weather Performance Denim Slim Jeans

L2X Performance Denim is made with a blend of organic cotton, Coolmax all-season polyester, and Lycra spandex. Coolmax fiber wicks moisture and heat away from the body to keep you cool, while that little bit of Lycra spandex gives the jeans enough stretch for them to flex and maneuver like you do, without compromising that denim feel. But if you want something seriously rugged, the DUER All-Weather denim collection adds a polyester membrane that makes these jeans water- and wind-proof. Other design touches include hidden gussets which further improve range of motion and reflective details that make you a little more visible in low light conditions. Also available in relaxed fit.

Whether you’re adding some new pairs to your rotation or you’re fresh to the world of denim, this is a great chance to score a deal on a pair of cool-wearing jean shorts that are perfect for spring and summer.

DUER Performance Denim Stay Dry Jacket

The only thing as essential for a man’s wardrobe as a pair of jeans is a rugged denim trucker jacket. These tend to be pretty tough-wearing in general — they’re made of denim, after all — but finding a jean jacket that’s both nicely fitting and easy to move in can often seem like an endless quest. The DUER Stay Dry jean jacket solves that decades-old conundrum by combing the iconic trucker jacket design with its Performance Denim organic cotton/Coolmax polyester/Lycra spandex fabric, with the added touch of a DWR water-resistant coating that repels liquids (be it rain or an unfortunate spill) to keep you dry.

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, kidnapped and brought to the island as an enslaved person at 16.

One thousand years later, he is still celebrated on St. Patrick's Day, the accepted date of his death, March 17. And how do we celebrate it? By wearing the color green on St. Patrick's Day, of course. Wearing the color symbolizes the patriotism of the entire island.

Now, whether you are Irish or not, you can show your support for the island by donning green on St. Patty's Day. However, that doesn't mean you have to go all out and look like you jumped right off the box of Lucky Charms. Here are a few tips to help you celebrate the patron saint of Ireland without sacrificing looking fantastic.

Freezing jeans shouldn’t really be a thing — here’s why
Why you should stop putting your jeans in the freezer

Recently, I reached into a friend’s freezer for an ice sphere and came across a pair of neatly folded jeans. This sight took me by surprise not because it was unusual, but because the practice felt so dated. For those that might not have heard of the practice, the idea behind freezing your best jeans is that freezing denim kills bacteria from well-worn jeans without actually having to wash them and affect the fade or overall integrity of the denim.

When did freezing jeans become a thing?
Jeans have been around since 1871. These popular pants were invented by Jacob W. Davis and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss. Though people have anecdotally frozen their denim for years, more as an odor-removing process than anything else, Levi Strauss actually pushed this practice into the mainstream in 2011. In 2014, Levi Strauss' CEO Chip Bergh repeated longstanding advice from the jean company; don't wash your jeans, freeze them instead. Bergh's reminder was more of a conservation effort to get people to freeze their jeans to stretch out the time between washes.
