Just gotta show some love for the Outlier Slim Dungarees.

Look exactly like jeans but are super comfortable & flexible with dat tech water resistant fabric.

Don't really get stretched out and lose form either. Seriously the ultimate pant i wear em everyday.

only thing is, dungarees are mad short compared to other outlier bottoms. highwater status when i cross my legs

i've also noticed that the schoeller really loses effectiveness after awhile. i haven't tried drying or ironing mine to 'reactivate' it per documentation, but the last time i spilled a beer on my lap i might as well have been wearing denim

^ 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.

you can dye it. use rit dye or whatever. probably 2 packets. wash it twice to gain its water repellencey

Re: dungarees nanosphere treatment, 5-10 minutes in the drier and it'll be like new.

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 also live in Texas and was wondering the same thing. I hate how I look in shorts, but it's too damn hot not to wear em...

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.

^ thanks. just tried it. in the washing machine now.

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

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.

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.

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

      Putting this thing up, since I'm not wearing it, and it deserves just that.
      This jacket is, as far as i can tell, a very limited production by Sakuto Motoike, son of leather leather sculptor Hideo Motoike from back in 08, when he did a line of very aggressive leatherwear that's quite counter to the americana (i presume) he does now. Line is now defunct.
      Cows leather, silver bone buttons and cotton inners. Not sure about the sleve lining, but i assume it's cupro or something along those lines.
      Bought it of the man who runs the CCP gallery http://theofficegallery.com on Cypress. It was from his private collection.
      Retail price was 4000 euro for him, back when he bought it, though i don't remember where.
      Worn very sparsely (say once a year) by me.
      Asking price right now is 2500 euro, but offers are welcome.
      Pictures:

      "Discolourations" from the dying process. Unique in that way.

      Notice the spots here. A few more on the other side. Were there when i got it. Doesn't do anything negative to the look.

      Leather tag. Notice the silver bone buttons.

      Will take more pictures for serious buyers and answer questions to the best of my ability.
      From the same maker, but quite a bit later and in a different style period.
      Size 3 desert boots, from before they started doing the more clunky look of the goodyear welt. Used quite a bit and rubbersoled a few times. Heel also rebuild a few times. No laces. Made of one piece of leather (tongue excluded).
      Paid 600 usd for them back in the days, but it was including a very difficult shipping route (they didn't sell to people who weren't in store to try them)

      Cedar wood shoe trees I'll throw in with the shoes for an ekstra 30 euro.
      Again, I'll add extra photos if wanted.
