Outlier explains that their well-designed pants are made for “rain, grit, and motion of real life,” and that seems believable enough if you take a peek at the cut and fabric used for these spring-perfect chinos. They’re planned for the long haul with key loops and a stash pocket, but they also have more hidden features like a cotton/elastane blend for ease of movement, with some nylon popped in there to help your chinos hold up.

Have you ever thought “Hmmmm, hot chinos?” I hadn’t, until today, when I spotted Outlier’s 60/30 chinos with an impeccable finish and a very convincing description. If you are planning on dusting off your chinos, but the ones you have stored away are just terrible, the it’s time to visit Outlier and see what they have available for you.

I’m imagining these practical, but still not boring, pants being worn with slip-on shoes and a button-up, or maybe with a well-worn tee and sneakers. Heck, these trousers will be around long enough that they’ll probably see all sorts of variations on the same outfits described here. Isn’t it refreshing when you get your money’s worth? Love them in Marine Blue, but they are, of course, also available in tan. [via slamxhype]
