Publish. Publish Brand: Maker of the Infamous Jogger Pant

In 2009,  Publish owner and creative director, Michael Huynh took a leap on a sweatpant design for men. The initial result wasn’t what was expected but it wasn’t a complete failure either. Creativity sparked and the buzz over the new design took a promising turn.  Huynh was about to trademark the next hot trend in fashion – the jogger pant.

During a visit from longtime friend Alex James, the two discussed the slick sweats that James had been wearing. From there, the idea snowballed and a design was in the making. Huynh wanted to create a stylish sweatpant for men that was comfortable but yet still stylish and unlike any other. 

After Huynh had sent the first design to his manufacturer, there was a miscommunication regarding the fabric which soon became far from a dilemma. The original design was meant to have been made with fleece but after some contemplating, the stretch twill which was what the finished product was sent back made of really was going to work after all. Thus you had the creation of the jogger pant!
