How much would you pay for a pair of pants with a 25-year guarantee? A solid pair of jeans or khakis from a name brand store will set you back $75 or more. Now a Kickstarter is selling The Quarter Century Pant — a khaki pant with a 25 year guarantee — for $85. The Kickstarter says The QCP uses “the highest quality 3-Ply 100% cotton twill fabric … an extremely rare fabric. It’s 280 grams and designed to have an amazing soft feel but withstand the toughest wear.” The pants also have a reinforced crotch and military-grade hardware. The pants are made in the U.S. and by selling them on Kickstarter they’re able to be sold with a 25 year guarantee for under $100. | LINK
