Outlier Tailored Performance Clothing - Page 47
Stretch is minimal, but it's there. Gusset gives you full range of motion unless you're wearing them ultra tight. I really loved the climbers when I had em and you just gotta live with the fact they're gonna be VERY skinny. Super comfortable if you can live with the fit. I find if it's too roomy the pants look like crap. Most fabrics Outlier is using looks kinda shitty unless you wear it in a fairly trim/slim fit.
this is so true. I am not entirely happy with the way the fabric of the dungarees kinda flops around, especially at my ankles. I kind of miss wearing normal, stiff denim.
^Yup, the fabric has no body so it just flops there. It'd be really nice if they used a new fabric with a bit more structure. I also wouldn't mind redesigning or designing a whole new pant with an articulated cut. After wearing pants with articulation I never wanna go back.
Well Outlier had the experimental Rain Pants last year. The supermarine cotton stacks a bit better than the dungarees and the rain pants had a hidden expansion insert at the knees:
I have a pair of acrnm articulated pants (it's the bee's knees) and agree that adding that feature to the nycos or dungarees would be a huge upgrade. However the OGs, Climbers and 60/30 Chinos already offer an amazing range of movement so adding articulated knees to those garments would be primarily about silhouette and fashion imo. Frankly I'd still take a pair of 60/30 Chinos over a pair of Nycos with articulated knees.
By the way, since denim was mentioned, I've been mulling over Rokker Jeans i.e. raw denim bonded to a schoeller membrane for a real jeans look with tech performance (and extra biker features — hip and knee protectors). The Rokker Revolution felt nice and comfortable but I didn't get the chance to extensively test the pair. Any reviews on these?
i would've probably just picked up some new OGs but according to outlier those aren't getting restocked for another 6-8 weeks
