My cross country ride photos at Bike Shorts

I’m going to have a slide show of 100+ photos from my NY to LA ride this past summer on display at Bike Shorts this weekend. I’m not sure if Ken is going to play it before or after the short films but it’s always a good idea to show up early and get a good seat. From what I hear this installment is to be a good one.

Previously: Bike Shorts 10 …or 11, I’m not sure anymore

OUTLIER Pivot Sleeve Shirt, An Experiment in Form

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it’s a been a long time coming and the
Outlier Pivot Sleeve Shirt is finally ready for it’s first experimental drop. We’ve been working on this one since before Outlier was a company and it’s been in development the whole time. A complete reworking of the men’s buttondown shirt, designed to move better for cyclist, but really we think it’s a better shirt for just about anyone. The key to the shirt is our patent-pending pivot sleeve design. The underside of the pivot sleeve flows seamlessly into the back of the garment, creating an extra side panel. By removing the rear arm seam you can move your arm forward without restriction. It opens up a whole range of arm motion, move your arms forward or up and your shirt stays in place, cuff at the wrist, no cutting at the shoulders, your shirt tucked in properly. The extra side panel created by the pivot sleeve gives the shirt a strong form, the extra fluff found in most modern dress shirts is gone, this is how a shirt should fit.

As always we stayed local with the craftsmanship, although we strayed a few miles further, across the Hudson River to the Gambert Shirt Corp, and their 76 years of shirting expertise. Single needle tailoring throughout, with 16 stitches per inch for strength and quality. For the fabric we stayed classic, two ply Egyptian cotton spun and woven in Italy, this is great stuff with an amazing touch feel and drape. If you were expecting a tech shirting fabric from us, well give some time. We haven’t found any on the market we like, but lets just say we are working on changing that… But for now, check it out, the Outlier Pivot Sleeve Shirt.

Ride Safe and Ride Strong,

Abe and Tyler
