It’s the equivalent of Super 160s wool, virtually unheard of outside of the world’s most luxurious suiting.

Outlier: The Ladies Slim Dungaree

Ever since I picked up a pair of Outlier pants for Lauren, she’s been in love with them. They fit her perfectly and now, there are more fit options from the Outlier team. Introducing the Ladies Slim Dungaree. As the name implies, these are tailored and slim, but will accompany many body types. Here’s more from Outlier:

“Don’t call them jeans. There’s no denim in here. No cotton to blowout after a month or two of cycling. No cotton to suck up sweat and rain and clam up your life for hours as it sort of dries. If Levi Strauss set out today, do you think he’d pick a fabric centuries old, or would he do what he did 160 years ago and find the toughest, most durable and most comfortable cloth around?

We set out to make a true five pocket pant for casual work and wear; a women’s version of our Slim Dungarees. It needed to be ready for our lifestyle. One pant we could wear everyday, all day. One that could handle the stress of daily cycling and would still look good even when covered in grime and paint.

Pants that stay dry in light rain, yet dry fast if they do get wet. Pants that shrug off coffee and beer. Pants that look and smell good even if you never wash them but can also get tossed in the washer without compromising their core style. Pants we can hike and sail in and then still walk into a restaurant looking sharp.

Five pocket design with brushed stainless steel rivets and a gusseted crotch. ”

Pick up a pair here.

Outlier on Hypebeast’s OTHERS

Abe and Tyler from Outlier are two of the most talented and motivated individuals I know. I love their products and their story is inspirational. This video, as part of Hypebeast‘s OTHERS series outlines the brand’s beginnings.

Outlier: Supermarine Anorak

I could be posting about the new Outlier Supermarine® Anorak but people will just complain about the cost of the thing (even if this cotton is one of the priciest materials known to outdoor companies – so much so that even Arc’teryx can only afford to use it for a panel on the arm, much less an entire garment). Although I can tell you that I am in love with my last year’s model. It’s the nicest rain jacket I have ever owned and it makes me miss inclement weather. But know this, when I travel to cities with piss weather, it’s always on my back. This year’s model is newer and improveder. So head to Outlier and see more.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, this isn’t necessarily a product plug, as much as a photography plug. I think this is the best photo Emiliano has taken for Outlier. It’s like an illustration come to life. Amazing man.

Outlier + Process
06_process_outlier_big

Outlier‘s process is far from simple,  and yet not that complicated. It’s more or less straight forward and it’s been the same since the beginning, minus a few tweaks here and there. Abe and Tyler aimed to create clothing from high-tech fabrics in NYC. No one else is doing that and since the brand’s inception, they’ve cornered the market.

If you’ve ever wondered just how much work goes into an Outlier garment, Hypebeast has a great story up on their site. Head over and check it out. And if you’d like to pick up a pair of brick red Three Way Shorts, do so NOW at Park and Bond. I’m damn tempted!

Outlier: The Freeshell

The new Outlier Freeshell is already almost sold out so I won’t bother with a bunch of copy. Instead, I’ll just post the one jumping photo and call it a day. But, I did say almost sold out… There are still a few sizes left.

Abe Burmeister from Outlier at PSFK

Having been friends with Abe and Tyler since the very first prototype Outlier pants, I can say that I’m extremely proud of their accomplishments. Here’s Abe talking at the recent PSFK Conference in NYC:

“In this talk from PSFK CONFERENCE NYC, Abe Burmeister explains how a punk-rock ethic helped him create a business building a new niche in a market he had no experience in. Abe just wanted a pair of pants he could both ride his bike and go to work in – and all his partner Tyler needed was a shirt that stayed fresh despite his pedal-powered commute. The Outlier co-founder describes how the duo paired intensive research in New York’s garment district with the connectivity of the web to create Outlier – a performance fashion business that only sells over the web.”
