Why would you want these pants?
Well, if you are 90's kid then you already know why..baggy, adjustable, loungey fun pants with cool colors and 90's nostalgia; every time you put them on you'll travel back in time to when the internet was a baby, Y2K was the scariest issue and cell phones didn't have cameras...plus, the music was awesome!!
If you are not a 90's kid then you are going to get a super simple, adjustable and comfortable pair of "made in Canada bum around" lounge pants that will last about 25 years and get softer every time you wash them. Modrobes pants were made with love and we wanted everyone to have a sense of value and belongingness. If you wore our pants we considered you part of our big family. As part of our values we made our garments in Canada so you are also supporting your family, friends and neighbors and not some foreign sweatshop.
Note: If this is your first pair of Modrobes lounge pants they will actually feel a little crispy when you first get them because they are made of a blend of 65/35 poly/cotton. Like a good old school pair of jeans after you wash them a few times they will start to soften nicely into your body...and then 20 years from now you will be hanging out comfortably and someone will say.."Hey, are those modrobes?"..and you'll be like..."damn right they are"...and then you'll feel a warm wave of love wash over your entire body...and only then will we have accomplished our mission.
The belt buckle adjustment: Modrobes is known for the easy adjustment belt and buckle. Why? It adjusts every time to your waist..whether that grows or shrinks you will always get the perfect, snug fit.
The History of Modrobes
Modrobes started as a project at Brock University in 1994. An uncomfortable university student, Steven Sal Debus, wanted to make the ultimately comfortable, utility pants for his fellow students. Stuck with choices of "cardboard" jeans and traditional sweatpants Steven took a look at snowboarders, hospital scrubs and back packs and had an idea; combine all them into a comfy, utility pant that would last your entire university career. He created a business project for these "exam" pants and after graduating he decided to make and sell these pants. But retailers laughed him out of their stores calling the pants stupid and ridiculous. With little concern, Steven travelled to universities cross Canada selling the pants at tables in front of cafeterias. University students soon started to love the pants and they quickly became of staple of dorm life.
Steven then built a line of casual, comfortable and functional clothing and the Modrobes crew travelled to concerts and events selling Modrobes and giving out "I want you in my pants" stickers everywhere they went.
The Rave Culture and electronic music exploded in popularity in the late 90's and Ravers started dancing in funky coloured Modrobes all night long. Modrobes pants got wider and the styles and colors exploded. Modrobes opened a tiny store in Toronto and fashion people scoffed at the pants.
In 1999 a CBC tv crew followed Modrobes to Woodstock 99 and the event turned into rioting, looting, fires and eventually the national guard being called in to shut it down. The video footage was shown across the country on national television and Modrobes became known to a wider audience.
