The origins of Matix pants began in denim but with the changes over time the material
and styles evolved to what was best suited for the marketplace. In the early days
the denim was imported from overseas, but these jeans did not offer great fits.
These bad fitting jeans spurred Matix to bring it home thereby, letting the LA
designers bring their expertise to the table with a bit of flare.
The first brand favorite that hit it right was the Styro that came out in the
fall of 1999. Soon three big names in the skate world got involved and the Oblique
surfaced as the slimmest fit at the time. This pair of jeans was a creation of
Marc Johnson, who got involved in design, styling and most importantly the fit.
The most popular fit of all was Matix Gripper Denim jeans with that machine wash
look of broken-twill weave. Matix knows how to set off a pair of jeans with the
tonal topstitching of subtle color accents.
The success of Matix style is tightly tied to their ambassadors. The top names
in the skate work like Zack Wallin to Marc Johnson in parallel with those in the
surf realm from Trevor Lucca to JJ Wessels create the true genre of Matix clothing.
The Matix JJ Tank Top reflects JJ Wessels typical day of waking, checking out
the surf, some riding, some lunch, capturing the images that feature on this signature
tank top, and then back to the surf. This tank top speaks of ease and a love of
life that is simple.
Today Matix has stepped into the world beyond denim from shorts to skirts, hoodies
to hats. The best in Matix design floods the market with the adventurous, free
riding styles that liberate the spirit. The history of versatility marks the brand.
In many ways, the tees and hats go beyond gender. Nevertheless, women’s
Matix clothing has grown as a slightly more feminine touch brushes across the
design. The design has blossomed to head turning scintillating dresses that stand
out with scoop neck and racer back to rad Matix tops with wild patterns, long
sleeves with ribbed and banded cuffs and crew neck.
Life is one of change. It is a journey of growth through adventure. There’s
a sense of right in the clothing that manifests a life in balance with nature.
Matix’s success is tied to the perfect expression of freedom. You will not
only look the part but also, more importantly, feel the wind blowing through your
hair or the spray brushing across your skin. Let the spirit rise and experience
the brilliance of this simple life
