Wrangler Introduces Flame-Resistant Jeans

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Wrangler announced it will debut a new fire-resistant jean next spring. The Wrangler Flame Resistant (FR) Advanced Comfort jean was created with the help of Westex by Milliken, and utilizes Westex’s new Indigo denim, the company’s latest advancement in FR fabric.

The fabric is made of a unique blend of fibers that makes them comfortable and durable while also exceeding flame-resistant requirements by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

“For Westex by Milliken, the new Wrangler FR Advanced Comfort denim collaboration is another example of creating innovation that helps solve concerns about fit and freedom of movement for workers worldwide,” said Mike Enright, vice president of Westex by Milliken. “This jean has demonstrated a significant increase in flexibility and stretch over the current FR denim in the market.”

The Wrangler FR Advanced Comfort jean will be available at wrangler.com and at specialty retailers from March 2016.
