Jeans Designed Specifically For Malaysia’s Tropical Climate

Wearing denim in Malaysia means anticipating how much we’re going to sweat while wearing it — a style obstacle that becomes tougher during Ramadan.

Levi’s® noted this and produced a collection that would be well-suited for our tropical climate – enter the Performance Cool range. The jeans in this recent release are made of breathable fabric that prioritises maintaining the body’s temperature balance as well as assuring proper body ventilation. Unlike regular denim, these pieces are made using Modal Fiber by Lenzing which helps it feel softer than cotton and exceptionally lightweight.

Even though the collection was released in-conjunction with Ramadan, Malaysian heat is an all-year affair which would make these jeans a good investment. So, if you’ve been doubtful about wearing jeans because of the weather, give one of these pairs a trial-run.
