Haggar to create sustainable men's pants with REPREVE

Oct '10
This year, green is more than a color for pants; it's a concept that's quickly catching on with men who are looking for eco-friendly options for their khakis and dress slacks. Haggar Clothing Co., one of the most recognized brands in men's apparel, and Unifi, Inc., a global leader in sustainable textile solutions, have partnered to create a line of sustainable men's pants featuring REPREVE recycled fiber.

Khakis and slacks are a staple in the male wardrobe, found on all of the must-have lists for men's fashion. Haggar's new eco-friendly collection containing REPREVE recycled fiber consists of four styles from casual to dressy, each featuring a straighter, more contemporary fit.

• REPREVE Renew Chino
• REPREVE Eco Cargo
• REPREVE Premium Twill
• REPREVE Smart Fiber Dress Pant.

“While Haggar has been producing men's apparel for nearly 85 years, Unifi's REPREVE enables Haggar to do good and look good,” said Haggar's senior vice president of marketing and merchandising, Jon Ragsdale. “Our goal was to provide eco-conscious consumers with a sustainable pant that's focused on style, comfort, and value; while supporting environmental conservation.”

Unifi's REPREVE is a family of recycled fibers made from 100% recycled materials, reducing the need to use crude oil and conserving the earth's natural resources. On average, a pair of Haggar pants from the product line containing REPREVE saves ten - 16oz plastic bottles from the landfill.

“Haggar has long been a trusted brand that successfully merges fashion with performance and functionality, and now offers sustainability with the help of REPREVE,” said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi. “Unifi is committed to bringing trusted, sustainable textile solutions to the industry, and REPREVE provides Haggar a certified, eco-friendly option with the same quality and versatility of conventional yarn.”

The collection also offers care-free attributes such as a comfort waistband and wrinkle resistance, as well as a soft, smooth hand.

Haggar's line of pants using REPREVE recycled fiber is available at retailers including Macy's, JCPenney, Kohl's, Belk and Boscov's. Beginning fall 2010, the collection will also be available online at haggar.com, jcp.com, kohls.com and sears.com.
