Old world tradition meets 21st Century functionality. The latest from New York-base apparel label OUTLIER is the Pivot Sleeve Shirt. A traditional button down would function quite well under a normal range of motions. However, when applied to task, such as cycling, the existing tailor methods come undone. The shirt tighten around upper torso and the lower shirt tail comes untucked. The shirt basically becomes a mini-form of a strait-jacket. By observing the shortfalls, OUTLIER designers Abe Burmeister and Tyler Clemens jotted down all the factors and created the Pivot Sleeve Shirt, with the assistance from Gambert Shirt Corp., a 75-years old family-owned institution in Newark, New Jersey. While its outwardly appearance is no different than the traditional button down fashioned by Wall Street type. OUTLIER’s variant include its patent-pending Pivot Sleeve, which offers wearer a complete range of motions and stances, even when lurching across the handlebar on a bicycle. Constructed out of 2-ply Egyptian cotton woven in Italy, the shirt is put together through and through with single needle stitching, at 16-stitches per inch. Craftsmanship not found in most the ready-to-wear dress shirt out there.
The OUTLIER Pivot Sleeve Shirt comes in White, Light Blue, and Light Lavender. All are currently available through OUTLIER‘s online store.
