When Mission Workshop first began entering the apparel market, after success in the outerwear realm, they knew they had to do things differently, while sticking to the MW DNA. I wore their Stahl riding shorts everyday for nearly three weeks in China, so when they asked me what I thought about doing chinos, I replied supportively.
The fit and detailing on their new Division chino pants differ from the other options, all while looking very much at home in the Mission Workshop apparel line.
Like all things made with Schoeller®-Dryskin, they’re not by any means cheap, but then again, they’re worlds apart from your average cotton pants. The Nanosphere® repellent treatment keeps them resistant to water and quick-drying if they do get wet, the 4-way stretch keeps them cool, in addition to offering mobility on the bike.
Made in the USA with a no-questions asked try it on free policy.
Schoeller® is hands down the best fabric. Period. Everything I own that’s made from this Swiss tech fabric lives up to its pricepoint and Swrve’s no exception. Especially with these Wool Trousers. Double woven, 4-way stretch, quick drying and best of all: WARM! Pick up a pair at Swrve!
Cold weather is here and all I keep wondering is if my picks for summer shorts will translate to my winter pants. So far, it’s looking that way. SWRVE’s digital camo quick dry shorts were a perfect summer companion and now, they’re making pants!
“Made from USA-made Durastretch® digi camo fabic that is water and wind repellant and has 4-way stretch for amazing comfort these trouser are perfect in every way. loaded with bike- friendly features, quick to dry, and totally invisible in the scrub brush* these are cut to perform seamlessly on a bike and stylishly in the world and are sure to be your go-to trousers on and off the bike.
I really love the Cadence trousers. They’ve got enough stretch to them, they feel great on and off the bike, are made in the USA and very affordable. Cadence just received stock of these reliable trousers in a limited run of Oakmoss.
Ever since I picked up a pair of Outlier pants for Lauren, she’s been in love with them. They fit her perfectly and now, there are more fit options from the Outlier team. Introducing the Ladies Slim Dungaree. As the name implies, these are tailored and slim, but will accompany many body types. Here’s more from Outlier:
“Don’t call them jeans. There’s 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, 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; a women’s version of our Slim Dungarees. 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.
Five pocket design with brushed stainless steel rivets and a gusseted crotch. ”
I wear my Dickies cut offs just as much as I wear my Outlier shorts, so I don’t want people complain about pricepoints limiting style. And if all goes as planned, these new FGL x Dickies will be available stateside and at a solid price. Looking good Andy!
Andy from Fixed Gear London and Fixed Mag worked with Dickies on steering their standard work pant into a cycling pant. By adding a simple detail to the drive-side hem, Andy took a simple pant and turned it into a functional piece of cycling apparel.
The guys at Outlier have come a long way from their original workwear pants. Growth, both in a product line and prowess is a sign of a successful business and each time I return to NYC, I’m amazed at how much they’re expanding. They now have an in-house prototyping studio, as well as numerous new employees, all aiding in their slow and steady conquest of cycling-friendly dresswear. I spent the afternoon with Tyler and Abe last week and shot some simple photos of their well-lit studio in Brooklyn.
