Perfect for messy eaters.

It doesn’t matter how careful you are, eventually it happens. If you wear white pants, sooner or later you spill a bit of coffee or soy sauce on them, forever ruining your pristine trousers. However, the Japanese apparel maker Factelier has developed a new line of white pants that promise to fix this pesky little problem.

Part of their new “Always Clean” line of pants, these new trousers look and feel just like run-of-the-mill white denim pants. However, spill some liquid on them and you immediately see why they got their name. Videos and pictures show substances like soy sauce, ketchup, and ink rolling right off the pants fabric without leaving a single stain.

Not even calligraphy ink is a match for these pants

The ability of these pants to repel stain-causing agents is thanks to the very same substance that keeps the fried egg you had for breakfast from sticking to your fraying pan: Teflon. A Factelier representative explains that the fabric, threads, and even the metal fasteners used to make the pants are all treated with Teflon so as to ensure that they stay spotless.

How do the pants do against ketchup?

All you need is a little water and no more ketchup!

Factelier’s “Always Clean” line of pants are now on sale and available in both men’s and women’s sizes. They are washable and will retain their stain repelling ability so long as the fabric is no damaged. As for price, one pair will cost you 12,960 yen (~$118), which may seem a bit pricey, but if you take into account the money you’ll save from not having to replace stained pants, perhaps it’s not such a bad deal.

If you’d like to purchase these for yourself, you can do so via Factelier’s online store. Check the links below.
