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
107-OUTLIER-Cliff-Jump

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.”

Catching up with Outlier
Catching Up with Outlier

The guys at Outlier have come a long way from their original workwear pants. Growth, both in a product line and prowess is a sign of a successful business and each time I return to NYC, I’m amazed at how much they’re expanding. They now have an in-house prototyping studio, as well as numerous  new employees, all aiding in their slow and steady conquest of cycling-friendly dresswear. I spent the afternoon with Tyler and Abe last week and shot some simple photos of their well-lit studio in Brooklyn.

The Outlier Feit Supermarines 2012 Edition
The Outlier Feit Supermarines 2012 Edition.

I really, truly miss my NYC family but it’s great to see various brands continue to grow each time I’m back in town. While I was in the Outlier offices last week, I shot some photos of their new The Outlier Feit Supermarines 2012 Edition. These sneakers may not be for everyone, or everyone’s budget but as history proves, they’ll sell out faster than your RSS reader will pick up on this post. They presale now for $290. Check out a gallery and a press release below.

Brooklyn Randomness
Brooklyn Randomness

I woke up Sunday absolutely wrecked. One of the hardest things about coming to events like the RHC are all the hours spend partying until 4am. After I pulled myself together, I met up with Chas and we rolled to get some food, then over to Outlier. Chas has decided to give up food delivery for modeling and since he’s #fixiefamous, I think it’ll work out great. From there, we headed to Affinity where we were greeted by the DOSNOVENTA bicycle team from Barcelona. Sure enough Clary hopped on their carbon and aluminum bikes and put on a show. It’s crazy how fast a day can go by when you spend it fucking around in the street on expensive track bikes… Don’t forget to check out the “previously” links below if you haven’t already.
