Foehn may describe itself as a rock climbing apparel company, and it may have come together when its designer-founder, Anthony Boronowski, sought a pair of pants that skillfully combined style and function. But Foehn’s products have always been for much more than scaling granite walls — its Nelson pant is stylish enough for city wear, and its Robson Down Hoody is perfect for winter commuting. The same is true for the company’s newest product, the Brise Short.
The Brise Short channels the same design philosophies that Boronowski demanded of his first pants: that they be as functional as possible while sacrificing nothing in terms of style. So he made the shorts using a four-way stretch fabric, a comfortable waistband and laser-cut, bonded hems. That taped zipper pocket on the thigh is accessible while wearing a climbing harness but also serves as a handy place to stash small items during other activities. I’ve been wearing these shorts all summer and have yet to rope up in them. Instead, I lounge in them, run in them, travel in them and wear them to work. They’ve also become my go-to hiking shorts.
Right now, the Brise Short is also 35 percent off at Huckberry.
