The new Outlier Shank Jacket allows you to be just as cool as The Boss, without the sweat of heavy denim. Outlier tipped the cup heavy looking back at the popular 1980’s style denim jacket when their creative team designed the Shank. We think they reached their goal of redesigning the jean jacket of the past with 21st century materials and style. The Shank Jacket looks tough, wears light, stays clean, dries quickly, and it’s Made in USA.
Outlier: We’ve united the durability and dependability of our Workcloth with the liberating four-way stretch of our OG Cloth to deliver a rugged strength without compromising the freedom to move. The Shank Jacket has a slim fit with no bulk or boxiness. The zoned application of OG Cloth to the backsides of the sleeves and the side panels grants the freedom of four-way stretch where it counts. It won’t bind you up or hold you back. Beautiful flat black stainless steel shanks, three interior pockets and classic styling round it all out.
Tough and beautiful, there are quite literally two sides to our Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas. The outer face is a canvas weave comprised of a healthy percentage of Cordura grade nylon, making it our strongest and most durable fabric. The inner face is completely different, a loosely woven nylon-poly blend that has been made to a subtle softness. The result is incredible: a rugged, ready-for-anything fabric that stays both comfortable and breathable. The Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas weighs in at 275 gsm (10 oz), slightly more than our OG Cloth. It has a slight two-way stretch and great drape.
Our core OG/4Season cloth: breathable, comfortable and durable, the most versatile fabric around. The Schoeller Dryskin Extreme fabric looks elegant, yet repels water. The doubleweave structure means it’s tough and durable on the exterior, yet soft and comfortable inside. The four-way stretch doubles-down on that comfort and means this jacket moves freely through any situation. Both fabrics are NanoSphere® treated, giving them nice resistance to water, coffee, wine and dirt. When they do saturate, they’ll dry much faster than conventional fabrics, keeping you in comfort no matter the weather. Both fabrics are bluesign® certified for a cleaner planet.
