- A button down shirt made with our Blazed Cotton fabric and sewn into our pivot sleeve pattern. Blazed with a Nano-Tex® treatment for a clean and comfortable shirting that resists dirt and sweat. Custom poly buttons and a front chest pocket round out the classic look while the Pivot Sleeve gives you freedom of movement and an excellent fit. We made a brand new microcheck pattern for a dimensional color aesthetic. Simply a cleaner button down for every day use.
A cleaner take on traditional cotton shirting. An openpoint oxford cotton fabric blazed with a high tech treatment that emulates the self-cleaning properties of a lotus leaf. The result is a soft, clean shirting that repels dirt and sweat, leaving you looking sharp and professional no matter how hard you push yourself.
We call the fabric an openpoint oxford cloth because it utilizes a traditional oxford basketweave but with low twist yarns which make for a more breathable shirting. These low twist yarns perfectly counterbalance the blazing process which adds a Nano-Tex® treatment to the fiber. The result is an improved Blazed Cotton; a fabric that breathes and absorbs well enough to be extremely comfortable yet is hydrophobic enough that sweat almost never shows through the fabric.

US 20120102618 A1 Patent Pending
Sometimes you don't know what's restricting you until you are set free. The Patent Pending Pivot Sleeve was born trying to solve what we thought was an isolated problem, but the solution turned out to have far wider uses. It's quite simply a button up shirt designed to give you a wider range of motion, and in the process it also manages to both fit and stay in place better as well.
It started out rather innocently, we wanted to create a dress shirt using traditional non-stretch shirting fabrics that didn't bind at the shoulders and across the back when we leaned forward on our bikes. We studied everything we could get our hands on, various tailored shirts, mountain climbing jackets and even the gear that George Mallory used in his fatal yet stylish attempt to summit Mount Everest in the 1920's. Ironically we probably learned the most from a couple overpriced high fashion shirts we bought on clearance in the depth of the financial crisis of 2008.
A year later, when the smoke had cleared and the experimentation was done, we found we had created something that was genuinely new (at least to the extent of our knowledge and research), the Outlier Patent Pending Pivot Sleeve.
A one piece sleeve that flows seamlessly into the back of the garment, creating a rear side panel in the process. The pattern piece for the sleeve becomes L-shaped. At the critical pivot point at the shoulder the fabric lies on the bias, naturally stretching exactly where it is most useful. Removing the rear arm seam prevents the shirt from both binding across the back and pulling untucked when you move your arms, so you both look sharper and are more comfortable. Finally the rear side panels allow for a much more refined shaping of the shirt than traditional constructions. A dress shirt designed to look better, fit better and allow you to move without restriction.
