Additional Information

A 21st century take on jeans, there is no denim in here. No cotton to blowout after a month or two of cycling. No cotton to suck up sweat and rain and clam up your life for hours as it sort of dries. If Levi Strauss set out today to sell pants to gold miners, do you think he'd pick a fabric centuries old? Or would he do what he did 160 years ago and find the toughest, most durable and most comfortable cloth around?

We set out to make a true five pocket pant for casual work and wear; what used to be called a dungaree. It needed to be ready for our lifestyle. One pant we could wear everyday, all day. One that could handle the stress of daily cycling and would still look good even when covered in grime and paint. Pants that stay dry in light rain, yet dry fast if they do get wet. Pants that shrug off coffee and beer. Pants that look and smell good even if you never wash them but can also get tossed in the washer without compromising their core style. Pants we can hike and sail in and then still walk into a restaurant looking sharp. The Outlier Keirin Cuts.

Fit-wise, we made this variation of our Slim Dungarees for cyclists and athletes with large muscular thighs and a smaller waist. If you've ever had to size up a size or two just to fit your legs, these pants are for you. We started with a larger thigh area but tapered the leg down to a fitted bottom hem for a trim, longer look. We then engineered the back yoke to angle downwards, allowing the seams to be higher and out of the way of the saddle. The gusseted crotch allows you to move freely over the top tube. A curved waistband gives you the freedom to lean over and not worry about exposure.
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 then our 4Season fabric and the heaviest of our core cloths. 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. Hang dry or tumble dry on low for 5-10 minutes maximum(do not use fabric softener). (It dries fast). Ironing or a quick tumble dry will restore the NanoSphere® treatment to as good as new.

  • Sizing

    Fits true to size but cut for bodies with muscular legs and healthy thighs but a slim waist. Basically if you have found yourself buying pants that are too big in the waist in order to get them over your thighs than these are the pants for you. If you've never had that experience than the Slim Dungarees a likely a better fit.
