New York-based Outlier works up a new pair of Workwear pants from their always impressive range of garments implementing hardwearing, comfortable, and durable fabrics like no other.
Not jeans, not denim, not distressed or stone washed, not selvedge or vintage washed, no chunky rivets or baroque stitching detail and definitely not “authentic.” Just a simple pair of pants stripped down to it’s most minimal form and rebuilt for pure function in a 21st century city.
The Outlier Workwear pants are our attempt to make something better than jeans, an anti-jean if you will. We don’t use denim, we aren’t too concerned about fashion and we make no attempt at “authenticity.” When Levi-Strauss invented the jean, we don’t think he copied centuries old pants and fabric. Rather he tried to make the best pants he could with the technology of his day, which is exactly what we did.
We started with the fabric, we wanted something that was both more durable than denim yet also more comfortable. We found it in the Outlier Doubleweave Canvas, a fabric that can take a serious beating yet feels great against the skin. The outer weave is a tough Cordora® canvas, the inside a soft brushed back. It’s highly water resistant, quick drying and breathes incredibly well so you get none of that clammy constriction of wet denim. The self-cleaning lotus treatment keeps you looking crisp and smelling great. A curved waistband and gusseted crotch ensure full freedom of movement, just throw them on and start your day.
The pants are now available through the Outlier online store.
