Outlier Tailored Performance Clothing - Page 81

post #1201 of 1359
Just ordered a pair of slim d's in black, and maroonshadow. Needed a pair of casual pants but something as versatile as jeans and after browsing so many shops they seemed to fit the bill. I remember when I thought Outlier pants were expensive couple years back, now they seem cheap as hell compared to the brands I wear now. The outwear prices still are shit though. Haha

Wish they released this two days ago, when I placed an order. Would have ordered Navy futureworks too.

 

 

 

Just a quick note on Outlier. I ordered a pair of NYCO slims in olive, and there was a problem with them. I emailed outlier, and they got back to me right away, and they were extremely helpful and very polite about the whole thing. Absolutely top notch customer service. They offered several different options to remedy the problem, all of which were more than enough. I settled on getting a store credit, and using it towards my next order. With that order, I got a pair of Olive New Way shorts.

 

My super quick first impression on the shorts (have just tried them on indoors and around the house at this point) :

 

I'm about a 33 in the waist in most things, and often wear 34 in a lot of pants, and the only other Outlier garment I own is a pair of NYCO slims in size 35, (sized up for the thighs, and then I had the waist taken in dramatically.) My initial thought was, "these look grey", and I ordered the Olive new ways. I actually thought it was a mistake, and I double checked my bill to make sure I put the right colorway in my cart. I still think that about the color. This is the most grey olive i've ever seen in my life. I admit, it is an awesome, versatile color, and I like it a lot, but am a touch disappointed with it, simply because I was hoping/expecting they would be more olive in color, like the NYCOs. Had I know it was like this in real life, I would have ordered them in navy.

 

With that being said, these are probably the nicest shorts i've ever owned. I bought them in a size 34, and the waist fits pretty much perfectly. They thighs have a good amount of room (for reference, I'm 6'4, 205lbs, athletic build, big legs.). They are tight in the seat and crotch, but not so much as to make them uncomfortable, and this is a problem I face with EVERY pair of pants/shorts I own. If I order another pair, which I plan too, I might size up. Depends on how they react to washing. The material is great. For the most part, looks like a normal cotton short, but its very lightweight, and it has a very noticeable amount of stretch; makes moving around in them very comfortable. I would workout, stretch, swim, or run in these without hesitation. The construction quality is great, and seems to be the same as the NYCOs I have. They feel well made, and all the stitching is fantastic in this pair.

 

Overall, while being disappointed with the color, I love the short. I would recommend this to anyone really, unless you have really skinny/thin legs, then they might be a little bit baggy. Totally worth the $120 ticket price. If you're on the fence, I would pick this up so you can wear them this summer. I wouldn't be surprised if they sold out fairly quickly.

 

After i've worn them a little bit more, and have put them through their paces, I can post some pictures, and some more feedback on them. I'm expecting them to hold up well.

^Nice. I'm thinking I'll probably get a pair when they restock some shirts so I can get free INTL shipping. I was on the fence because a lot of people talking about the poor fit but I have relatively large legs and I never wore super slim shorts anyways.

But one last thing I need to know in regards to stretch... Would you say they have zero restriction like a regular set of basketball/gym shorts? I would like to stretch in these as well but if I couldn't do the splits in them I'd probably return them.

Hmm, tough to say. I don't have time right now, but tomorrow maybe i'll workout and stretch in them, and see what its like, and then report back. I would think you would be able to do the splits in them if they were properly sized. In my 34's, I don't think I would consider them as free as a pair of athletic shorts (I normally wear shorts under armor running shorts), but they are pretty damn good.

 

So I guess I want to say they have an extremely low level of restriction, but still maybe a bit more than zero. I feel like they would have zero restrictions if I were to size up to a 35. The only pulling I get now is in the seat, which is tight on me. If you don't have a huge ass, you'll be fine TTS, if you do, size up maybe. For reference, my actual waist is 35", and my hip measurement is about 41/42", with thighs at about 25.25" .

Anybody have experience with hiring a tailor to alter one of their blazers (specifically the ultralight)?

My 60/30 blazer fits perfect throughout, but the jackets waist (or stomach) in my ultralight is way too big. I need it taken in as well as have the sleeves shortened at the shoulder (perhaps too much of a nightmare...). I don't know. Am I undertaking too much?

Just stretched in my New Ways. They are very free. Felt next to no resistance, and I was able to do everything I would normally do in gym shorts. That being said, they are still a touch tight in the seat, so they ride up a little when im getting up from a lot of movement/bending. ie, I have no problem getting down into a half pigeon pose, but once I stand up, the shorts have rode up and caught on my thigh a bit. Again, I think sizing up from 34 TTS and 35 would completely solve this.

 

Also, now seeing the shorts in natural sun light, I want to say they are not 100% matte finish. They have an incredibly small about of sheen to them.  Only noticeable in direct light, and when you're looking for it kind of thing. I doubt anyone would ever notice.

I've never had that done, but I can't see it being a problem for a competent tailor.

Anyone hang their merino t shirts? I'd rather hang a shirt then fold it.. especially when it's getting multiple wears.

I do. After I wash them I will hang dry them by draping them over a towel rod or lay them flat on a mesh drying thing with four legs. Once dry, I hang them like anything else. I haven't had any issues at all, but just make sure your hanger comes as close to the armhole seam as possible.

Gotcha, thank you.

Is it just me or do the new way shorts attract lint like crazy?

how are you guys keeping your outlier dress shirts wrinkle free? namely the NE pivot and blazed cotton shirts. As soon as they get out the dryer they are wrinkled and an iron won't do shit for it. Do you actually iron them while wet each time you wash them?

I never owned a NE Pivot, but I did get rid of all my blazed cottons for that exact issue. Love the shirt and the fit, and eventually perfected the ironing process (damp cloth between iron and shirt), but it was too tedious. Merino/Co and air-forged only for me from now on!
