PROFILE | OUTLIER TAILORED PERFORMANCE

4Season OG Pant

Attention all urban bikers and hikers: This one’s for you.

Outlier Tailored Performance is a New York based company that creates clothing specifically for active urbanites – those who don’t want to pick and choose between breathability, comfort, and office ready style. In the company’s words:

We firmly believe that the bicycle is the best form of urban transit for the 21st century, and our clothing is designed to make that fact even more true. Your clothing should work as well on a bicycle as it does on the subway or in a car, without shouting to the world “I’m a cyclist.” … You should always look like you belong inside the city, not just out on the road pedaling. 

Beyond this noble cause, the company is grounded in sense of responsibility, with a solid set of ethics:

We believe in strong communities and we see both our production people and our customers as an integral part of our personal community. We are here to build a long lasting company dedicated to quality. Quality in our product of course, and also quality in how we relate to the world. We treat people fairly and we treat our environment like it’s not just our home, but the home we want our grandchildren to ride their bikes in.

Plus, it helps that the products impress as much as the mission.  The Outlier line includes, pants, shirts, outerwear and accessories created in a range of breathable, durable materials from Merino wool to their own double-weave (read: comfortable and flexible) fabrics.  Their line of pants is the most impressive, as they come in 7 (read: SEVEN!) styles, cut for function, body types and fit.

If you’re even a bit curious you should peruse their site and seek them out in the flesh.  See below for more. Here’s to eradicating pit-stains in client meetings and last minute dates.  – M
