LYCRA® lastingFIT technology

LYCRA® lastingFIT technology logo

LYCRA® lastingFIT technology for denim jeans and for jobwear provides durable stretch and recovery, shape retention, and very low shrinkage.

A key component of the technology is LYCRA® T400® fiber. Because this fiber is made from two different polymers it forms a permanent coil that consistently recovers. The long-lasting performance of these fabrics is one of the attributes that sets them apart from other stretch alternatives, providing you with a whole new level of comfort and consistent fit. Jeans with LYCRA® lastingFIT technology hold their shape and keep consumers looking great, all day, every day.

Jeans with LYCRA® lastingFIT technology provide long lasting comfort stretch, making them an excellent option for menswear. With LYCRA® T400® fiber in the weft, these fabrics keep their shape wash after wash and wear after wear. And, the ability to withstand heavy bleaching, sets them apart from other stretch alternatives.
