It's between OG and Climbers since I want that 4-way stretch. Any tips on how to size on Climbers? I checked out the size chart, but it's good to get real world feedback too. Also how durable have they been? I plan to use mine to commute to work.

^ I had 3 pairs of the OG, and while mad comfortable, all three ended up with crotch blow-outs, which was kinda disappointing. :(

The slim dungarees have held up all winter tho. Maybe I'll give the climbers a try next.

yeah the quality from what I've been hearing leaves a lot to be desired. I've been lucky but my friend who has a pair says the same thing, ripped.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but anyone have thoughts on the outlier shorts? Not really my aesthetic but definitely moreso than say chino shorts or something. I live in Texas and shorts are pretty much mandatory to survive the Summer and something like RO shorts would pretty much defeat the purpose for me. Plus I don't have a real swimsuit and those it looks like they function as that purpose also.

I had a pair of the outlier shorts and upon first wearing the button popped off. But other than that, they worked pretty well for me, very light and breathable, but this summer I'm goin totru some of their ultra light summer pants.

The thing about all these outlier questions, is they have a 6 month (THAT'S SIX MONTHS, 180 DAYS) no question return policy. Just buy the shit and if you don't like it, send it back.

Yup. I saw that and was pretty impressed. Picking up the Climbers today.

Side note from my deleted post earlier... 15% off Rapha going on right now. I was gonna buy the city riding trousers, but just realized they're not water-resistant. Bummer.

i am pretty sure rit dye isn't going to do anything... there is a good amount of synthetic fibers, which ordinary rit dye will NOT stick to. there are such things as synthetic fiber dyes (available at fabric/arts stores), but i am doubtful that these will achieve the color you're looking for. you might just have to buy another pair

The city riding trousers are basically black chinos, nicely tailored with riders in mind. But their soft shell pants are excellent for foul conditions - too warm for anything but winter use tho.

I wish every brand put as much effort in breaking down their product that Stone Island does. Sure it's still marketing, borderline (I wanna say cheesy, but that's not the right word) animeish, gundamish, in delivery, but when you're paying money for something you wanna know the details.

Totally agree about the Softshell trousers. I've been using them for commutes to and from work during the cold and rain and they work marvelously. Way too warm for anything but a cold fall and winter.

it actually worked out after dying twice. the only part that didnt take to the dye was the inside lining.

honestly speaking the way it's presented only makes it more awesome to me.
it's almost like you're a kid and you're being outfitted with fucking awesome jawnz that you're gonna wear while going to go kick some ass somewhurr
but that's just mostly my anime-filled childhood getting to me

that aside, i'm really impressed with this season.
convert pants look like they're a little slimmer this iteration and god so much of it is sickkkkkkk

I ended up using a half a bottle twice. probably would be darker if I had just used a full bottle once. I didnt add any salt either, so theres probably possibility for darker color than this. you can see the difference between the cuff and the outside of the pants

edit: this is a pretty bad photo. ill try and replace it tomorrow

Can anyone recommend some sneakers that are both durable and stylish? I'm wondering if anyone has had experience 574s before because they look very nice but I'm not sure of how well they would hold up.
