Phat pants come with 6 pockets in total. 2 deep ones at the back and 4 on the front with two small zippered pockets inside the front pockets.

Send your body measurements to us or get the measurements from a pair of your own pants that fit well. Refer to the template above. Measure your waist, inner and outer leg and also the thigh. If you’re measuring from a good fitting pair of pants add 2.5 inches or 6.4 centimetres to the waist measurement to get the actual circumference. Example: you got 16 inches across the waist measuring from a pant. Your actual waist is 16 X 2 + 2.54 = 34.54 inches. Round it to up 35 inches) We adjust crotch, thigh and inner leg measurements to create the baggy fit. Waist and length measurements must be accurate. We will make the waist and length of your pants exactly what you send us. We do not adjust these two measurements. Wear shoes when you measure yourself for length so you get the required length with shoes on. Crotch - The default crotch measurement for men’s pants is 13 inches and for women, 11 inches.. If you would like it to be smaller to make it look more flattering instruct through order comment box or in an email. Thigh - Wrap the tape measure around one leg closest to the crotch area to arrive at the thigh measurement. We adjust to this to make it baggy so do not add any inches or centimetres to what you send us. Inseam - Crotch to bottom of hem with shoes on. We make girls’ hipsters for no extra cost. If you’re female we need the around the hip measurement plus the outer leg measurement from the hip to the bottom of the hem. If you’re male please tell us you want the pants to sit on your hips so we can reduce the default crotch length to suit. Please note we have kids’ sizes.

We have 12 colours available to use. These are deep blue, UV green, UV pink, UV yellow, UV orange, Violet, white/clear, dark green, gold, black, grass green and red. All these colours reflect under a strobe light, camera flash, car head light or some powerful source of light. Some colours glow ( fluro / neon ) also under a black light. These colours are orange, pink, yellow and uv green. These four colours reflect also. None of our pants operate on batteries. No LED on pants also. >

We can change the colour of the pattern for you at no additional cost depending on availability. You can do this now during the order process. If you request for a colour change at the time of order we will get you a photoshop in the next few days for you to see and approve. The official order date will be the date we confirm/finalize the pattern with colour change applied. Wherever response is required and it hasn't come through to us, the order will be delayed as order date moves to date you confirm. If it is a straight forward colour change like white to green we will not be sending you a photoshop so original order date will stand.>

The reflective material pattern we do around the legs - We do not let the pattern go around the pants and on to the inside leg area. We do this so they do not rub against each other, scratch and rip in a short time. Custom patterns that we do may appear to be going around the leg fully but they do not please note. From our experience if they rub against each other in the inner thigh area they rip and fall apart from there in a few months.

We custom make all phats so we can make any size. Waist sizes 38 inches or bigger incur an additional fee of between $10 & $30. We adjust the crotch marginally if your waist measurement is 28 inches of less. For the thigh area, We also adjust the thigh area to achieve the baggy fit. Providing us with accurate measurements is essential for customization and allows us to deliver pants faster. Add info@alternategear.com.au to your email safe list. We may need to contact you about measurements. The default bottom width of our pants is 16". Please specify all your preferences for colour and materials in the comments box that appears before you check out. Let us know if you’re using a pair of well fitting jeans or your body for the measurements. If you prefer email this to us at info@alternategear.com.au with your name and order number. We’ll contact you if in case we need more information. We do not collect crotch measurements through the field no more. For some sizes we would require crotch measurement.
