Actually if it sells out that means it's more likely a few will eventually pop up used on the classifieds at cheaper prices so... better for you (us)?

heh, we could have a wide ranging discussion on what the 'Outlier look' is. How would you describe that?
Price wise... hmm... my outlier outfit for last fall/early winter was:
- soft core vest (warm/water resistant core)
- hoodie/cardigan (warm arms)
- shirt (base layer) and/or henley
that's $240 (vest) + $275/$240 (hoodie/cardigan) + henley ($150) = $665/630 and the arms are barely wind resistant and not water resistant. You could swap out the hoodie/cardigan for the old bomber ($290) to replicate the new bomber and that's $680! Or swap in a supermarine shirt/anorak ($275/$580), wind/water resistant although not so warm, but you're not saving money at that point.
The new bomber is expensive but it can still be considered good value imo depending on how you build up your wardrobe .
