For those of you that like a little more slack at the bottom of your pants and like to keep your ankles covered - you wanted it, you asked for it, you waited for it, and now, Outlier delivers it with a 36' inseam on their Slim Dungarees (order the "Long" version on their website). Read more about this fantastic pair of pants after the jump.

A 21st century take on 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 to sell pants to gold miners, 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; what used to be called a dungaree. 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. The Outlier Slim Dungarees.

Fit-wise, we made these clean and lean but not skin tight. Relatively straight hipped with a slight taper below the knee. A gusseted crotch, curved waistband and reverse back yoke ensure you can move freely through any situation.
