post #511 of 1341
I hate kickstarters for cloths, so many ridicioulous raw denim ones. They could easily do what proof is doing and offer discount codes and promotions. They could generate hype by doing YouTube videos like durabilty tests, making of Outlier garments, interviews, garment reviews etc. hell they could even give away a few pairs for free by contests. It seems like they dont try, and if they would and do it right, maintaing a certain crowd of consumers that they desire should not be hard.

Outlier doesn't need to generate more hype; they already get coverage from GQ, Forbes, Mens Journal and Esquire... Outlier isn't an upstart like Proof anymore — they've been there and done that: discount codes, videos (youtube too), interviews, making of Outlier garments, garment reviews and even contests. I don't think they are trying to get the certain crowd of 50% discount consumers anymore. If you want to pay cheap prices for Outlier then just wait until it pops up on ebay/classifieds. Some great deals to be had.

Great points. One of the best things about Outlier they hold there value well, I seen many Outlier pants go for only $20 less then retail which I think is ridiculous to do that. I would not pay anything less then $50 off for a used garments unless it was really rare.

Well if a pant is currently sold out on the Outlier site then resale prices will be higher, especially for the popular sizes S/M/30-33. For those sizes it's not even advisable to wait for a re-up from Outlier 'cause you might get the email late and, by the time you check the site, the new ones are already gone again. Plus Outlier products keep their quality so even used items tend to be in good shape and last long. XS and XL aren't priced so bad but then again they don't pop up so often on the second hand market.

 

 

p.s. Any regular in this thread who wants to buy my Outlier hoodie or cardigan, mention this discussion and get 11% off ;)

I have not worn my pants enough to know this so... I heard the inside lining on the pants goes pretty fast, once it goes does it make them uncomfortable or anything like that?

Hmm I haven't heard that. From that AmA linked above:

They are also water-resistant (i.e. not proof): I was just caught in a downpour in Chicago this morning and while I got wet (read: not soaked/drenched) they dried within 2 minutes (really!) of getting indoors

There was a tweet on the 18th that there will be a "special release" this week. The party is tomorrow so the release is probably the next day. There was a similar party for the 60/30 Blazer on May 8th:

I hope they are awesome and no more then $300. If I were to buy cheaper shoes OTW are fairly nice choice.

Converse has a schoeller shoe. I hate that shoe company everybody including mothers and toddlers wear them. 

 

I rather see a Vans Vault x Outlier. Or even in my dreams a Common Projects x Outlier, that would never happen I know, but one can pray lol

 

Black and white pair of achilles wrapped in schoeller fabric MMMMMMMM!!!

The converse tech shoes are actually quite good. But I'm tired of sneakers. I'd be more excited for an Outlier x Alden collabo

That would be quite enjoyable a dress shoe for biking. The price tag on the other hand would be well most likely $600.
