Outlier just announced their pre-order for their Summer Shorts. I was over at their place the other day and saw them in person. Very legit. Cinch straps, so no need for a belt. A carabiner loop for your keys, a ulock will fit in the pocket and won’t pull them down. Really nicely made with details that will last.
Once we had the first sample made, it clicked immediately, these fabrics would make killer swimsuits too. And then we knew what had to happen, we were going to make sure these shorts would double as a swim trunks and all we needed to do was figure out how to make everything dry fast enough. Our core fabrics are quick drying already, but we needed to work on the pocketing. It took some trial and error but we tracked down some amazing woven supplex, and it was on. We had a pair of shorts that not only looked and felt great, but they dried out faster than our old swim trunks.
Read up here about the pre-order and you’ll also find more pictures.
