When it comes to denim, it’s hard to beat a soft touch and feel and incredible comfort. That’s why 7 For All Mankind created Luxe Performance, combining everything guys love about jeans with comfort both inside and out and great fabric recovery. Available in eight different fits and four washes, Luxe Performance is crafted from premium Italian denim that retains its shape even after prolonged wear — something hostelier, Roy Alpert, appreciated when he took his pair for a week-long spin. One of a handful of individuals invited to road test the new jeans, Alpert works as the brand director for Freehand — a high-end hostel concept taking America by storm — which means frequent travel, days filled with meetings and creative sessions that often bleed into evening cocktails. In this feature, Alpert offers his take on Luxe Performance, from the denim’s versatility and comfort to the way they held their shape; watch the clip above and head over to 7 For All Mankind for more information.
