This outfit is significant for two reasons: 1. It marks the first time in as long as I can remember that I’ve willingly worn shorts outside of the house for anything other than exercisational purposes; and 2. It features the first Little Brother Spring/Summer 2012/2013 sample in the form of that short sleeve grey crewneck sweater. The shorts were kindly donated to the cause by the fine gents at Outlier – a company that prides itself on tailored garments that will literally stand up to anything you can throw at them. Named the Three-Way-Shorts, they’re breathable (good for walking), stretchy (good for running) and they feature mesh lined pockets (good for avoiding awkward bulges while swimming). Most of the brand’s fabrics come from a high-tech mill in Western Europe and boast water and stain resistance, plus a four-way stretch. I’m not sure about other guys, but I wasn’t familiar with stretch fabrics till I tried these on, and the experience is not unlike that time Audi gave me a car for a week. When I hopped back into my Honda Civic, I knew life would never be the same again. Ditto all my other pants. And on the Little Brother front, we’ve got our big sample meeting this evening at 6:00pm my time. So much anticipation… so little time!
I’m wearing: Little Brother short sleeve sweater from the upcoming Spring/Summer range (dropping into store at the beginning of September), Outlier Three-Way-Shorts and Converse Chuck Taylors.
I LIKE YOU!
