Additional Information

We’re always looking for a better way at Outlier and sometimes that means tearing a classic product apart and rebuilding it, phoenix-like, from the ashes. We’ve been building off of a core idea for years now - that the perfect pair of shorts are tailored like a dress pant to look great, built using performance fabrics so you can run or train in them, and can double as a swim trunk with water-ready details. With the New Way Longs we've taken another step toward that perfection.

The idea is you only really need to own one pair of shorts. They need to look right, with a proper waistband and working fly (both for function and to prevent those oversharing gym short type visuals!). They need to have proper pockets, two deep front pockets and two rear welt ones as well. They need to be lightweight and breezy, but with enough structure to look good and durable enough to take hiking. They need to dry quickly so you can take them anywhere and stay comfortable. And perhaps most importantly they need water-ready details so when you reach some beautiful water you can dive right in. That means flow through pockets so you don't get bogged down and a drawstring waist so your shorts stay up when it counts.

As with all Outlier products every material is considered. We started with the body fabric. It needed to be light and comfortable all summer long, yet strong and structured enough to take a beating and still look great. It needed to feel good, move well and dry quickly too. We found the answer being woven in Sweden. The 200gsm F. Cloth is built around air texturized, Cordura grade, nylon yarns with a substantive two-way stretch. It's finished with a durable water repellant treatment so it dries quicker and stays clean longer. On the back pockets, it's paired with our flow-through power mesh pocketing.

For the waistband we used a true mil-spec American made paracord. The slot button is custom made in Italy out of Mombasa poly, attached with webbing made in Pennsylvania. Finally the YKK #3 coil zippers are made in Portugal.

When it all adds up, what you've got is a better short. A short that lets you do more and own less.

The New Way Longs have an 11 inch inseam. For those looking for a slightly shorter short we also have the New Way Shorts, which have an 8 inch inseam.

F.Cloth Logo
Strong, durable and lightweight. Our F. Cloth is a 200gsm 97% Nylon, 3% Elastane canvas woven in Sweden. Boasting a substantial 35% two-way stretch, F. Cloth is significantly freer than many stretch fabrics. It's lightweight and breathable, while the light DWR and air texturized Cordura grade nylon yarns are both strong and soft enough to be a joy to wear every day.
