I am in need of good black jeans and I think I might just get a black pair of the dunagree fabric pants.
Are they a "true black" color? Does the color fade?
Surfaces compare more to 60/30's than OGs. Proof's Nomads are their comparable pants to OGs.
@einstine, did you see the black lately? For me the black dungarees are Black, not dark gray or anything. My girlfriend has a pair and they blacker than the black OGs. They don't fade and are an excelent choice as an alternative to black denim, I'm thinking of getting a pair but since I have already 2 dungarees I'll probably get the climbers sizing up.
@suyi , I got the 4x4 scarf in green, it's fucking huge and a bit annoying to take off and put back. You kinda need a mirror to make it look ok. I've only wore it once and it wasn't too cold outside but it's so big that you can probably cover yourself nicely in a really cold day. Get one if you can find it, if not.. you could try to get some ribbed merino and make one yourself, it's just a square of fabric.
BTW, I'm going to sell two Merino/Co shirts (bluetint gray and strong blue S) , they used to fit perfectly but after machine washing (delicate, 30* cold cycle) they have shrank quite a bit. Now they have this note on the sizing section:
Which I saw way too late. They were my favorite shirts ever but the sleeves are too short. I guess they are a bit bigger than XS, the sleeves an inch shorter than the normal S outlier shirts. I'm in europe so I'll try to sell them here first, if someone is interested, drop me a PM before I put the ad.
Anyone has the latest merino tshirts? I ordered 4 a couple days ago but it will take a while to receive them, I'm tired on getting holes in my icebreaker's 150 tech t-lite and outlier's look more durable.
I also ordered a second pair of the linen shorts. I got a pair for christmas and they are fucking awesome to lounge at home so I got a second pair before they run out.
Fuck, I was looking for the order numbers to send them an email about the merino/co shirts and just realized that I've spent $3458 in outlier clothing only in 2013. I've been wearing some outlier stuff every single day in 2013.
The list, if someone wants a review/pics of something just ask:
All of them in size 31, My favorite ones are the dungarees, the cut and fabric is perfect. The OG's are a bit too.. conservative? maybe I should taper them. The ultralights are life-savers in summer but they have pilled a bit after only one summer. I don't wear the Nycos because I'm spoiled by the strechy fabrics, also, they fit small. The three-way-shorts are awesome and I used them every single day in summer, swiming pool, beach, everywhere.. The linen shorts are great for lounging at home. My girlfriend is also really happy with both of her pants but the sizing is way off (both size 2 but the dungarees are way bigger)
They make awesome pants but should work more on the shirts, they have been really inconsistent this year, had to return one and the sizing was awkward in the short sleeve pivots. The Merino/Co ones are the best shirts ever but the shrinking fucked me. I haven't received the merino t-shirts yet so I cannot comment on those.
Wearing the supermarines right now. They look good, are comfortable and make me taller but have construction issues on the side band, they also get lint and cat hair like crazy. The socks are amazing, best ones I've ever used and miles away from smartwool or icebreaker offers. The linen towel is nice to travel because it packs light but it's not too absorbent, the merino scarf is great, maybe a bit too big, they should have gone with 3x3.
Overall, I'm really happy with everything I have from them. Over the last three years I've converted all my wardrobe to outlier, icebreaker and stone island and it's been a great investment. The comfort and protection (heat/water) of tech fabrics are worth it even if they are expensive as fuck. I need some more shirts and some climbers but I'm pretty content with what I have now.
