New Testimonial: "Spotting & Stopping Pick-Pockets in Paris"

Paris ›   Testimonial ›  

Today, the Clothing Arts Team is proud to bring you another stopped pick-pocket testimonial from France. This makes two stops in the last 2 weeks for the country!! Incredibly, this is your 35th confirmed stopped pick-pocket in the city of lights... that we know about.

As travel restarts, the number of confirmed stops you send in will grow quickly with pick-pockets out of work for as long as we have limited our world travel. As our founder said, "You never think it's going to happen to you until it does!"

Today, more than ever before, it will pay to be prepared and RVJ was "by packing extra security" for Paris' notoriously sticky fingers on his recent trip to Eiffel Tower.

We received his testimonial via a ***** Review on our Business Traveler Pants and RVJ is from Jacksonville, FL.

182nd Stopped Pick-Pocket: Feeling Secure @ McMurdo Station

Dear Clothing Arts,
Two years ago, your pants really saved the day. We were far from another town for weeks and I don't know what I would have done without them.
We were headed to the south side of the island and our connection was delayed. It was colder than usual and my team was stuck at Ross Island. Our flight was running late to get back to the station before dark. When the chopper finally arrived there were two more of us than normal, so we were packed in pretty tight between the equipment.
As we were getting off, the snow was thick and it made for slow going. We were just happy to be off the bird at that point. The next thing I know, I feel a tug at a zipper. Turning around as quickly as I could on the ice, it was just a Gentoo and an Emperor trying to get at my sandwich stored in the cargo pocket. Good thing I had thought to zip it away or those pesky penguins would have made off with my lunch!!
- Cassandra S., Research Fellow, McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Ok, so this didn't happen. It is April 1st after all...
So far you've ONLY stopped pick-pockets on 6 of the 7 continents. Perhaps one day, someone will try to pick a traveler's pocket wearing our gear in Antarctica... who knows!
To check out all of your real-world stopped pick-pocket testimonials visit our testimonial page.

Life On The Road: Istanbul Nights

Istanbul ›  

Journey with us to the crossroads of the world, Istanbul. One of our favorite cities where Europe and Asia meet in this cultural and cosmopolitan capital of Turkey. Clothing Arts has a lot of history here as the first pairs of our Pick-Pocket Proof Pants®️ were made here nearly a decade ago!

We start with a visit to the historic Sultanahmet district where we witness a magnificent sunset on the eve of Eid Mubarak over the Blue Mosque. Then we cross the Bosphorus and make our way up to Taksim Square. Istiklal Caddesi, the city's vibrant shopping street has come to life at night. As we explore the area vibrant atmosphere, stumble upon an impromptu dance performance and enjoy famous Turkish mussels served cold on the half shell at one of the city's popular al fresco fast-food dining spots.

Come with us and experience Istanbul Nights!

100,000 Pick-Pocket Proof® Pants Walk The World!

Founder/Desginer, Adam Rapp, was interviewed by Chuck Scarborough of Fox News back in 2014. Clothing Arts had just turned two and sold our 8,000th pair. Chuck asked, "Why not 100,000 pairs? What is the limiting factor to get these things made?" Well Chuck, we just crossed that number and we have our eyes set on 1 million! Watch the whole interview below:

The Clothing Arts Team is incredibly proud to announce that 100,000 Pick-Pocket Proof® Pants now walk the world! Earlier this month, our team shipped out the special pair. We started with a simple idea, to add security to a great pair of pants in 2007. The idea did not turn into a design right away (there was more traveling to do!) and our pants made their debut in 2010 at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City Utah, and the first pair was created in early 2011.

We would like to thank you for your support along the way!

Our designs have evolved over the years and we can't wait for our 3rd Generation Nature-Like Nylon™ fabric to debut in early 2018. Read about this major fabric upgrade, two years in the making here.

New For 2018: 3rd Generation Nature-Like™ Nylon!

Our Most Advanced Fabric Yet - Baby Soft, Breathable, Comfortable, Water Resistant & Wearable in All Four Seasons.

These are the characteristics of our signature Nature-Like™ Nylon material made specifically for us by one of the world's largest Nylon manufacturers. First released four years ago, our fabric changed the game for established travelwear. This new type of fiber allows you to experience the travel benefits of 100% Nylon (light-weight, quick-drying, wrinkle-resistant ), with all the benefits of Cotton (comfort, styl, moisture-wicking). Released to our site in 2013, nearly 90,000 pants are walking the world made from this type of fabric!

We are excited to announce the release of our 3rd Generation Nature-Like™ Nylon today! More breathable, comfortable, and durable, all new deliveries of our Pick-Pocket Proof Pants will feature this fabric.

Two years ago, we set out to redefine the material used in our travelwear once again! Already best in class, our designers have succeeded in improving all characteristics that make our technical fabric feel and wear just like cotton pants. Plus we have selected the newest, environmentally friendly water repellant to prevent spills and stains while traveling. Our 2018 Nature-Like Nylon features an advanced PFC Free Eco-conscious (DWR) Durable Water Repellant Finish! We have made the fabric, more breathable, more comfortable, and decreased its environmental footprint!

Join us on tour of how the fabric is made:
