At first glance, I can see how a pair of 60/40 pants might seem a little a gimmicky, what with the fabric’s current heritage-head appeal. However, the 60/30 Khakis from Brooklyn’s Outlier are not simply another “vintage-inspired” cash-grab. These are thoroughly considered and tested pants, made by cyclists, for cyclists. It just so happens that the cyclists doing the making have the same appreciation for how things used to be as the rest of us. Crafted in NYC from a Swiss-made 64% cotton / 29% nylon / 7% elastane blend, the pants have the hand and appearance of cotton twill, but the durability and ruggedness of a mountain parka, making them an ideal bottom for the wet winter weather ahead. Cut slim, but engineered to allow for a range of movement (remember: cyclists), and available in two excellent for the everyday colorways, the khakis are a solid option for on and off the bike, heritage-head or not.
