Additional Information

A workwear take on our classic Workcloth fabric used in our Slim Dungarees. Loose cut with a hidden shank closure and discrete dime pocket in the rear.
Workcloth Logo
Tough and beautiful, there are quite literally two sides to our Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas. The outer face is canvas weave comprised of a healthy percentage of Cordura grade nylon, making it our strongest and most durable fabric. The inner face is completely different, a loosely woven nylon-poly blend that has been made to a subtle softness. The result is incredible: a rugged, ready-for-anything fabric that stays both comfortable and breathable.

The Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas weighs in at 275 gsm (10 oz), slightly more than our OG Cloth. It has a slight two-way stretch and great drape. The "self-cleaning" NanoSphere® treatment emulates the surface of a lotus leaf, giving it nice resistance to water, coffee, wine and dirt. When it does get wet, it dries much faster than conventional fabric, keeping you in comfort no matter the weather.

Bluesign certified for a cleaner planet. Machine wash warm (do not use fabric softener). Hang dry or tumble dry on low for 5-10 minutes maximum. (It dries fast). Ironing or a quick tumble dry will restore the NanoSphere® treatment.

    ↗ Workcloth Tough

    Woven exclusively for Outlier by Schoeller in Switzerland. The outer face of this fabric is made from a Cordura grade nylon 6,6 in a tight modified canvas weave, for serious every day durability. These pants can take years of regular wear and tear and still come out of the washing looking fresh and new.

    ↗ Doubleweave Comfort

    The Doubleweave construction means the inner face is as soft and breathable as the outer face is tough. The soft and loosely woven inner face stays dry longer and has a slight 3D structure that reduces skin contact for superior breathability. The net result is a pant that is extremely comfortable in an extremely wide temperature range. We can pretty much wear them 365 days a year all across the world, making for a near ideal travel pant.

    ↗ NanoSphere Clean

    The "self-cleaning" NanoSphere treatment is modeled after the surface of a lotus leaf. Light rain and water rolls right off, taking dirt and grime with it, coffee and red wine spills are no problem either. It is not waterproof but when it does get wet it dries super quickly, especially when worn. This means far less washing and drying, allowing people to travel farther with less. Just note that the NanoSphere does get beaten down a bit with extensive wear, but 5-10 minutes in a dryer at medium heat will restore it close to new, and every few years we recommend using a wash in DWR to further restore water repellency.
