Rising more than 1,200 feet above northeast Wyoming is a brooding slab of igneous rock known as Devils Tower. You may remember it from â€śClose Encounters of the Third Kind.â€ť Or perhaps you paid it a visit while on a family vacation. Were you unnerved by its eerie vertical lines? Some say these are the work of aliens or, as Kiowa legend has it, the scratch marks of children who tried climbing it to escape a murderous bear.
At Betabrand, we donâ€™t believe in myths, folktales, or peyote-addled conjecture; weâ€™re businessmen and pant scientists -- empiricists through and through. So when we took a hard look at Devils Tower, we didnâ€™t see the handiwork of frightened children or little green men. We saw a fantastic marketing opportunity. And thatâ€™s why weâ€™ve entered into business with the Devil.
Betabrand, the worldâ€™s foremost purveyor of horizontal corduroy pants, is always looking to make a splash by subverting that which is vertical. This includes our genetically modified zebra breeding program and our recent â€śSay No to Longitudeâ€ť PSA campaign.
Now, with the help of the worldâ€™s foremost practitioner of the dark arts, weâ€™ve reoriented the once-vertical striations of Devils Tower -- the
perfect way to honor our Brick Cordarounds, with their sinister black rose liner.
Of course, â€śhorizontalizingâ€ť Devils Tower required the skill and cooperation of the Towerâ€™s legal owner. And that owner is, according to the National Forest Service and the Crook County assessorâ€™s office, the Devil, with whom we are pleased to announce this exclusive marketing agreement.
In lieu of our eternal allegiance, Satan, through his lawyers, has requested only that we make a modest donation for trail and restroom maintenance at Devil's Tower. He also wants several pairs of red trousers -- no surprise, as Brick Cordarounds go perfectly with the fire-and-brimstone motif of his demonic lair. All in all, we think thatâ€™s a hell of a good deal.

HOW DO THEY FIT?
Our cords fit true to size.
WHAT IF MY INSEAM IS 30" OR 34"?
Weâ€™re a small business, so we offer only a couple of lengths right now. Fortunately, any tailor can hem our pants to a great fit.
HOW DO I CARE FOR THEM?
Theyâ€™re prewashed. Wash in cold water, tumble dry on low heat.
