Shep and Ian were sitting around one day and Ian was wearing performance pants. Shep started chirping Ian, telling him that he looked like he was about to slide out of his chair and he could hear him swishing around from a mile away. Ian shot back, barking at Shep that he was wearing the same khaki pants he wore to his eighth grade graduation. They decided to solve the problem—make a pair of pants that looked and felt like old favorites, but were packed with performance. The On-The-Go Pants were born.
