post #1291 of 1362

nobody buy the linen towel, it is an utterly useless piece of trash. idk why the fuck they are making it.

 

so for like over a year, all i had from this company was a pair of slim dungarees, which i wear (and continue to wear) almost every day, doing all sorts of active, adventurous shit. i was super happy with them, and really loved this company because my only experience with them was this one fantastic product...

 

recently, however, i made a couple purchases from them, and the bubble has really burst, which isn't to say that i even dislike everything i copped...the mojave shirt is great, and their socks are incredible. but, the linen towel is utterly useless and the air forged oxford is uncomfortable, popped a button after an hour or two, and i find the collar/neck to be quite huge.

 

that said i am going to cop a t shirt and if they ever re-stock the merino/co i will probably get one of those, too. but my feeling is still kinda like, fuck this company.

Jesus, man. Sounds like you're getting a little too bent out of shape. 

 

I was skeptical of the linen towel, but after a few washes, it seems to be different. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else, either, but I wouldn't say "fuck this company" because I fell for the marketing ploy they put out on it. 

 

The Dungarees are awesome and the merino tees are good shit too. 

 

If you don't like it - return it.

The linen towel is a bit oversold: it's awesome as a beach towel as originally intended but meh as a bathing towel. It's also great as summer blanket; when the weather gets hot and humid I replace my cotton/wool blankets and throws with the large linen towel.

 

p.s. the Bathrobe is back in stock.

imo the ultralights are a very niche product. The fabric is light but it comes with some flaws (imo), mainly the drape is weird and the pockets are too noticeable through the thin fabric. Also one of the buttons came off on the 3rd day, but that's easily fixed at home.

 

I think that they are a little cooler than the Futureworks/Climbers, but the slight coolness comes at a high cost, and I don't mean the price. Unless you legit 100% need to wear trousers in very hot weather, I think any other Outlier pants are a better bet in terms of appearance.

 

OTOH I'm in love with the Futureworks, especially for the price. Just don't wash them too much, you don't need to.

They actually said on Reddit the return policy is good on these, so check back for restocks.

Climbers just got restocked if anybody's looking.

For those of you that are wearing pants with nanosphere - how often do you guys tumble dry or iron to re-activate it? 

Which do you do? Dryer or iron? 

I don't wash pants often, but I've noticed that the pairs I've worn for a couple of weeks have lost a lot of beading in comparison to a newer pair of dungarees I got. 

post #1300 of 1362
Whenever I machine wash, I tumble dry just enough to dry them. Right now, my 3 way shorts get the most wear and I maybe wash them once a month or earlier if they are visibly dirty, but I also swim in them at least once a week. My 60/30 chinos are worn maybe 30% of the time and only washed when they are really dirty.

I'm pretty much the same way. So once a month is a good rule of thumb?

I think the rule of thumb is to wash them whenever they are too dirty to wear in public or if they stink. Mine have never stunk and I've put them through a lot (this goes for the Outlier 60/30s I have as well). If I didn't train my dog daily in them or was more diligent about spot cleaning, I could go longer than a month, Kids and dogs get shit dirty.

Do you not find that the DWR starts to fade away pretty significantly if you don't re-activate it through the dryer often enough, though? 

post #1304 of 1362

In my experience it only needs about 5-10 minutes in the dryer to reactivate. For maintenance, I spot clean until they're really dirty and toss them in the dryer for a few minutes every couple of weeks to maintain DWR.

Can anybody talk me in to / out of the ultralight trousers? There doesn't seem to be much love for them, but I've got a business trip to SoCal coming up and would like to travel light. I work from home and in the summer I'm in shorts 99% of the time, so the ultralights would not be everyday pants. Do they work well in that role with the understanding that they're a bit more delicate?
