VANS TEAMS UP WITH 7 FOR ALL MANKIND ON PERFORMANCE DENIM SNOW PANT
Vans x 7 For All Mankind Pant to Hit Shops this Fall

Cypress, CA (March 17, 2009) – Vans and premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind are excited to announce a special collaboration for the 2009/10 snow season that offers an innovative new design for style-minded riders.

Utilizing 7 For All Mankind’s original and top selling silhouette, the Bootcut in New York Dark, Vans constructed a limited edition outerwear pant that blends Vansguard, a waterproof, breathable coating with true, quality denim.  The result is a stylish yet technical snow pant that protects riders from water-based elements and wind, while also allowing perspiration to be released from the body and quickly evaporate.

Available in early fall 2009, the Vans x 7 For All Mankind outerwear pant will be sold worldwide at select board shops.

The Vans x 7 For All Mankind collaboration is part of an extensive outerwear collection for both men and women that fuses Vans’ SoCal mountain styling with the most advanced technology to create versatile pieces that easily take you from the harshest mountain conditions to the town streets that night.  Vans made its name in snowboarding with boots that fit the needs of the full spectrum of boarders, from beginner to expert, park terror to backcountry agent.  For 2009/10, Jamie Lynn returns to the Vans fold with his signature freestyle boot, joining the latest editions from Hana Beaman and Andreas Wiig.
