Ripton and Co, who make those nifty stretch riding jorts have just announced the perfect color for those who like less hair metal and more black metal. These black “smoke” jorts look like a nicely worn denim vest and will continue to fade and patina with heavy use. They’re available in cut (pictured) or hemmed, for men and women, at a retail of $89. Best of all, they’re shipping today. Head over to Ripton to see more and if you’re curious about what Spencer thought of them, check out his review in the archives below…
Paraphrasing product descriptions seems moot when they’re this good, so I’ll let Ripton take it from here:
“We take one part spark-plug fluid. An unhealthy helping of axle grease. And a macro-dose of brain-bending, jet black acid. Then mix in a five-gallon bucket until the contents resemble ooze spilling from Chernobyl’s long-lost singletrack. Drop in a pair of Ripton tech jorts, top off with a splash of Four Loko, and apply a light smoke. 24 hours later, we unearth our mutated masterpiece: the V3 Black Acid technical denim jort.”
Updated high-rise fit, technical mesh pockets, technical zipper and button.
Ripton Steelknit® 38% weft stretch denim
Available for men and women at Ripton for pre-order with a December 10th shipment date.
I’m not going to lie, when I first saw the post about Ripton & Co I thought it was a joke, and if it wasn’t a joke why have I missed the business opportunity of the decade sitting right in front of my face. At a startling $89 for a pair boutique cut off jorts, I was stunned. I was shortly connected to the Jort Lord, Elliot Wilkinson-Ray, who asked what size I wanted and if I wanted the shorts hemmed or cut off, I chose to go with cut off to go for the full jort experience.

What a world we’re living in. Just the other day I was talking to a friend about riding in Jorts during the Texas summers and he said the only bad thing is the swamp ass… I wonder if he’s seen these Ripton & Co. “Action Jorts?”
