the norton protected betabrand ‘ready active jeans’ feature RFID-blocking fabric to shield personal and credit card details from digital scanning devices. with figures claiming over 10 million identities are electronically pickpocketed every year, the machine cold-washable trousers have a classic five-pocket style which includes two – one for the back and front – that block radio-frequency identification and near-field communication readers.

the traditional slim fits are a combined development from the computer software company and the san francisco-based retail designers, which update the released ‘ready jeans’ to a new high-level version. similar to previous models, the pants are made from subtly stretchy denim but also provide a better range of movement thanks to its gusseted crotch, and prevents thieves from stealing the wearers’ information.
