    Pocket flare is probably caused by the pants being too tight across the ass, and is exacerbated by tightness in the thighs.

    Tightness across the seat could be fixable with dress pants, since they have extra fabric at the back seam. Are Outlier pants made this way?

    Tightness in the thighs you have to live with.

    the 31's aren't tight around my thighs nor across the seat, yet they flare just as bad as the 30's

    Yeah, neither the 4 season or new og's are tight in the ass or quads on me, in fact both are a bit loose, yet I still got pocket flare with the newer version,,, I still love the pants and wear them a lot, although now I slightly prefer the fit on the nomads.

    So these Outlier x Vans Bedfords that came out last month and sold out fairly fast... well a site called Tactics apparently has some stock. I bought two additional pairs.

    They're way more comfy than I even thought and the quality is pretty outstanding. I know they were marketed as a summer sneaker of sorts, but I'm thinking slim dungarees and Bedford's all fall and winter.

    Just a bit stunned. Thought it was a limited run only available from Outlier.cc. Vans OTW site doesn't even stock them. Weird.

    District Footwear also has a couple sizes of the Outlier x Vans. Odd distribution but I'm not complaining.

    hey all. joined SF recently. have been looking for a pair of good protective + fashionable motorcycle jeans. my search led me to schoeller fabrics and then here to SF, and I recently discovered outlier. looks pretty interesting.

    curious has anyone ever used their pants as protective riding gear? i'm not talking serious highway miles...more just zipping around the city at lower speeds (20 - 40 mph)

    thanks!

    I ride around town on my mp3 once in a while, never been down though so not sure what that will tell you.
    I think you're best bet would be to go with the dungarees, seems to be the more abrasion resistant fabric.

    thanks cansty. yeah those look interesting b/c of the slight stretch, but not super cheap (for another $50 can get fully kevar lined). they looks great though...

    With outlier theres basically 4 types of fabric for pants, the scholler 4 season on OG's, the workcloth canvas on the dungarees, the 60/30 chino and the nyco slims.

    I think for motorcycle riding you need a good balance of flexibility and abrasion resistance, or fabric toughness, so heres mho on how the stack up against each other
    nyco, ++++ tough, + flex
    60/30, ++tough, ++ flex
    OG + tough, ++++ flex
    Canvas +++ tough, +++ flex

    Then theres the comfort factor which is pretty subjective, imho the og's win hands down for comfort with the dungarees second, next would be chinos and least would probably be the nyco but then again once worn in I imagine they could get pretty decent as well.

    whoa...awesome. thanks for that. yeah my issue is that there just seems to be very little attractive, reasonably priced protective clothing out there.

    the nyco's are a little bit more affordable though so maybe i'll give those a try. thanks so much again for the help!

    I wasnt referring to durability, they're all pretty durable, people have worn then day in and day out for years and still going, so no, durability is good on all, i'd say really good on the 4 season.

    I was referencing fabric toughness, abrasion resistance, you know like if you scraped the knee against pavement or something, in that sense yeah, the 4 season fabric would be on the lower scale compared to the other fabrics.

    Anyone tried the 60/30 before? Somehow no one has ever written a review on them.

    Maybe 'cuz theres nothing really that special about them, imho fit is better on the og's or dungarees, and for a more regular fabric choice the nycos seem like the better value and fit.

    I've tried the 60/30 on and thought they were ok but for the same price I prefer dungs or og's (better fit, nicer fabric, more comfortable).

    I'm seeing much less pocket flare with the OGs up at the navel, while wearing a belt

    Currently I roll up mine and usually leave half to no break, but now the inner fabric is starting to pile a bit at the roll point so I'm thinking of finally having them hemmed, no cuff and I'll probably do a full break natural (half break with hem folded once simulating cuffs), still not sure if I'll hem all my pants though, probably start with the older ones (most piling) and see how it goes.
