If I wasnt subjected to the many many "spilling accidents" going on around me I'd definitely go for some next level pents, but for now my personal stock is around 25% ogs, 25% nomads, 30% apc raws and 20% eg
(obviously theres several more but only listing percentages of what I actually wear currently)

dat stretch is important to me. more so than the water protectant.
post #993 of 1308
^ absolutely, cant underestimate that sweet stretchiness
I've said it before but to me it feels like im wearing slim breathable sweatpants that just look like normal slim pants

I love it when this thread explodes overnight ha. So much goodness.

I think this is the first time I have looked at their pricing and had a truly negative opinion in regards to it (though I still bought the shorts, pullover, and bandana... the last of which will serve as a great smaller scarf and even better when I am on the mountain). But man... it's a very valid point about the t-shirts in particular. Small patches of this ultrasuede shouldn't constitute that big of a price increase IMO. Maybe just increase the priceof the t-shirt by how much the fabric costs and the small uptick in labor required to sew it on. Basically, offer the variation from the base merino T at cost just as a new offering/variation to consumers.

Re: Proof... they crack my shit up. Very obvious they rip off Outlier's pieces as I think Proof has maybe one original product (oxford shirt). Everything else from the Nomads to the Surface, shorts, peacoat... straight rip offs. BUT, the quality is on par with Outlier, the fit is often better, and it's almost always cheaper so I have purchased stuff from them. I like my Nomads (have the pine colorway like canstyleace and it's pretty rad) and my olive surface pants are good too. As somebody else mentioned, their Nomads have been on Huckberry a couple times (actually were this week, but basically no sizes available) for real cheap <$100.

Anybody else chuckle at Proof's write-up on their Surface pants? They claim they scoured the globe for several months to find the right fabric for their Surface pants. Oh, you mean the same stuff Outlier has been using for a few years in the pants that you are blatantly copying?! LOL. They're almost endearing due to their ridiculous nature. Whatever though... make quality items at a decent price point and I don't care.

And back to Outlier, I'll continue buying their stuff unless they really just lose it. They're still new to the industry and I really do appreciate the fact that they try weird and new stuff. Grid linen? Ripstop merino? A GD sun poncho?! All in, Abe.

Both posts are in this thread: deadsunrise's wardrobe post is #942 and rxryan's is #943. deadsunrise has mentioned that he is located in the sunny side of Europe which explains why he doesn't have as much outerwear as the rest of us.

Oh... I thought you meant a write up on all my cloths not only Outlier. I don't own a lot of Outlier garments anymore I sold almost everything I bought from them. I just don't like them anymore and they have not came out with a garment that wasent worth compensating a little more money to get a better garment. 

 

The Outlier garments I still own are 1 pair of three ways, a merino tee, x feit inosles, and 10 pairs of there socks the only thing that are worth it that they sell imo.

Did you see the Flint & Tinder 'Tough Slacks' they released a while ago? They copy Outlier's NYCO slims, right down to the fabric, colors, and even the (fairly unique) crotch gusset patch.

Outlier makes a big deal about 'scouring the globe for fabrics' too. Yeah, superfine merino wool is really hard to find. Why didn't you guys just pick up the phone and call the guys at Ibex?

(also, is it just me or does their latest model look like a homeless man that operates an art gallery)

Obviously the idea is ripped off, but for what it's worth, the fabric specs are different between the Surfaces and 60/30s.

post #999 of 1308

I made a thread for ProofNY.

post #1000 of 1308

Are the 60/30's fabric more durable than the dryskin ones? I do a lot of jungle trekking and the slim dungarees are close to perfect save for the lack of stretch.

 

I tried trekking wearing a pair of Climbers and the snags are just crazy.

post #1001 of 1308

FWIW I think that 60/30 is pretty damn tough. It's quite a dense weave and even when it frays or has a snag it doesn't leave that big a mark behind if you're inclined to snip the offending thread off. It may be a little warm when you're not moving much though - I find it a bit weird in that it breathes great when you're in motion but turns into woolens when you're standing still. But I wear them in tropical climes without complaining much so they should be fine for ya.

post #1002 of 1308

Slim dungarees are the most abrasion resistant for sure. The 60 / 30s are probably more abrasion resistant than the climbers but definitely nowhere near the level of the slim dungarees. Definitely worth trying the 60/30s if you need the stretch. They are a good in between option for stretch plus increased abrasion resistance. Not sure if this matters but their color does fade slightly over time since they have cotton in them unlike the dungs and climbers which are synthetic fibers.

post #1003 of 1308

Thank you! Appreciate the replies.

 

I was afraid of stretching my legs too much when navigating through challenging terrains in fear of ripping my dungarees.  But yea the pants survived scraping against rocks, getting pricked by thorns and absorbed buckets of sweat without any visible damage and odour.

This might be a bit of a silly question, but does anyone have much experience with how the Merino/Co Pivot shirts hold up through repeated washings? I've been a bit loath to wear the ones I have since merino seems like quite a delicate fabric to be subjecting to weekly washes (and like hell I'm going to wear a shirt more than once or twice without washing it).

Why even bother spending the money on merino if you want to wash it every other wear? Just get a regular pivot shirt if you want to wash it a lot.
