Undercover. Some sort of in-house nylon-ish blend, conspicuously-taped seams, and a bit of schoolboy-ish writing scrawled throughout. Like Isaora's nylon blazers, I'm not remotely sure what occasion these would be for; I'd buy one and wear it in the rain, if it wasn't absurdly priced. I snagged the pants version from a swell dude in B&S and they're pretty fun.

The blazers are just meant to be worn exactly like any under 30 year old might wear a normal blazer for a night out. Over a tee, black jeans, boots. I don't think they're necessarily that difficult to wear. Just don't wear a business shirt.

disagree. think about prada and how they pair a nylon blazer over button ups (not spread collar or anything) and some nice trousers.

loro piana and brioni sometimes have pretty cool sw&d stuff actually, fit doesn't work for me though

In line with the aforeposted super-high-end dabblings in luxe technical wear, I submit a Ralph Lauren Purple Label jacket made of bonded cotton-polyurethane blend with interior taped seams.

Wasn't harsh!

I agree i think it can work over like a white dress shirt - but that's sortof a universal. What I meant to say is certainly nothing that looks businessy or biz-cash - no butcher stripe, no gingham etc etc.

I'm sure there's a way to do it well in a million different styles though. I just wanted to point out the easiest and sorta failproof ways of doing it.

damn outlier looks good! first time i heard of the brand. and more affordable too. thinking of switching my office pants to the outlier 4 season OG pants for that SWD swag.

what other brands are in the same ballpark or maybe lower? SI, acronym is too expensive.

SWRVE is another bike-oriented label that makes trousers etc, price is about the same as Outlier
post #70 of 969
Thought about that too regarding Outlier for the office

May happen but right now I am content with my Uniqlo.
Want to keep SW&D separate from MC fwiw, but who cares huh... shog[1].gif

I own and like SWRVE but I don't think they are in the same category as Outlier.

Re: the Outlier pants, I'd strongly recommend the dungarees over the OGs/climbers.

That Schoeller fabric on the OG/climbers is very, very stretchy and I felt like I was wearing clingy a Star Trek uniform. Plus I ended up getting a bunch of small snags in the fabric. Plus my phone and wallet in the insanely deep pockets looked like bulging cysts on my thighs (solved that by sewing the bottoms of the pockets to make them smaller). This was version 1.0 or 2.0--they do at least continually improve the design. (I wouldn't ever buy a version 1.0 product of theirs, as there is usually something a bit off in the cut that needs to be fixed the second or third time around.)

Got a pair of dungarees at the sample sale and like them much better--same fabric but in a chunkier canvas weave on the outside that makes it a bit less stretchy (closer to stretch denim w/spandex, which I still dislike compared to nonstretch denim or wool) and hopefully less likely to snag. They have more of a jeans look/cut too, which I prefer, so perhaps slightly less appropriate for businesswear (the techy yoke & back pockets of climbers aren't totally formal either). I use them for biking in spring/summer/rain, they are great for the wet (repels light/medium rain), they dry super fast, and are pretty cool/breathable. Picked up the three-way shorts too.

Despite all the techy new fabrics, wool is the way to go for undergarments, socks, tees. Icebreaker has good prices, Ibex better design... Think my ideal biking pant would be a hard-wearing wool blend cut slim like jeans rather than dress pants, but haven't found one yet. New + old school. Speaking of, curious about the supermarine cotton in the outlier parka...

I like the cut of the Swrve knickers I have, don't know about their Schoeller versions. Last time I checked their prices were a little better.
