Customer reviews
The new style of hemming was super easy to do – all the hard work has been done in the design so that changing the hem to suit my height was simple and quick. Instructions on both the video and the tags on the pants are clear and easy to follow and love that this style takes away the need for me to find a alterations shop to take up every pair of pants I have for work – this is a huge bonus when you live and work in regional or remote towns and can’t always find someone to help.

Why did we implement an inbuilt leg length adjustment method?

Because we’d had enough of women feeling uncomfortable at work with pants that don’t fit. 

HMZ enables women to adjust the length of their work pants effortlessly.

The HMZ method is also a step forward in COgear’s sustainability journey. 

By introducing HMZ (patent pending) to our range, we not offer 48 fit options, sizes 4 to 26, each with four length options.

How does HMZ work?

HMZ (patent pending) offers effortless customisation of pant leg lengths. Choose from four lengths: the original length (inseam of 86cm) or three shorter lengths (inseam of 81cm, 76cm, or 71cm).

To adjust the length, simply pull the tab and unzip the stitches on the inside of the pants to your desired length.

This will shorten the pants and result in a neat and clean hem. No scissors or sewing machine are needed.

We recommend making any necessary adjustments before washing.
