Patagonia’s new Extension Cord pants are made from hemp and PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) polyester, a proprietary textile made from recycled soda bottles. They’re designed to accommodate the rigors of climbing and bouldering, but we think they’re equally swell for hitting the latest hipster hangout for a drink after a hard day at the office. Available for men and women. $74 ::Patagonia
