    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.

    Looking to get my first pair of pants from Outlier, and was wondering if someone could recommend an all-around model that would be appropriate for biking, and working in a relatively casual environment.

    If you want the fancy schoeller performance fabric (recommended for occasional wet-weather biking), get the dungarees rather than OG or climbers.

    I have no experience with the nycos or 60/30 chinos, but they're not as special or unique to outlier.

    I have both the OG and the ultralight blazers and I like them quite a bit! They have a good fit and drape nicely, very comfortable and have all the performance specs they are claimed to have. If you like the pants of the same fabrics at all you should be pleased with them.

    I would get slim dungarees. For me it's the most versatile and durable of the bunch. I have all the pants except the chinos and climbers and the dungarees are my favorite. I'm trying to get another pair in gray but they are out of stock.

    Just received my OG Blazer. Above response is accurate... Drapes nicely and feels much better than a typical blazer or suit jacket due to lack of movement restrictions. Sleeves are a bit long for me, but not enough for me to give it up.

    I got it in charcoal and I'm digging it.

    Also, I just received my merino heavy shirt. This thing is way impressive. One of their more innovative offerings IMO, and it works. Only gripe is sizing... I haven't figured out their nomenclature, but might just be me. I wear size small and I read on the site it's true to size (with same chest measurement as the pivot shirts) and that it also says due to being a layering piece, one needs to size down for a tailored fit. Anyways, mine is large. Is this normal to note sizes strictly in regards to actual body size? I'd almost prefer garment measurements so I'd know if this bigger than usual layering piece is too big in my normal size (despite measurements appearing the same for garments that are seemingly full-size differences despite carrying same size label)? Sorry for the convoluted, confusing paragraph...

    is the blazer pretty casual? something i could wear with jeans and a v-neck tshirt?
    what is the length like? it is a bit cropped?

    I would only buy the blazer if you actually need a technical blazer, ask yourself if it could fit into your life. I bought the red one when it was out, and the material to me seems like shouldnt be made into a blazer, and the sizing and fit was nightmare. I wouldn't consider it nice as a simple Gitman, Brooklyn Tailors, or Our Legacy blazer.

    A traditional material blazer shouldn't be restrictive... miss-sizing? Technical blazers in general are the solution to a question nobody asked.
