One of two “fabric nerds” behind progressive NYC label Outlier, Tyler Clemens is practical, athletic and visionary. Less than a month after meeting Abe Burmeister in a coffee shop, the two had begun building the future of straight-to-consumer technical clothing. United by a mutual love for cycling and making functional, high quality menswear, the Outlier duo’s designs are both liberating and exhilarating. Characterized by a sensibility towards ventilation and movement, Outlier inventions include smart slacks that corporate urbanites who cycle to work can wear comfortably all day. The Outlier Supermarine Rain Shirt and Outlier Supermarine Anorak here are two other classics that Clemens decidedly won’t leave home without alongside some necessary forms of inspiration. Check out our recent video with OTHERS involving the story of Outlier here.
