Got this email from Tyler Clemens of Outlier.
“Earlier this spring, biking on the edges of Brooklyn Abe and Tyler of Outlier stumbled on an incredible stash of surplus tropical wool suiting. Never ones to let things go to waste, they snatched it up and turned it into the OUTLIER Tropical Wool Caps. Tropical wools are nothing like the heavy ichy stuff you think of when you think wool. These are the same fabrics that you’ll find in a $3000 summer suit and they make for a midweight cap with a fantastic look, fit and feel.
The OUTLIER Tropical Wool Cap is made in collaboration with master milliner Victor Osborne and designed with the highest attention to detail. Outlier started with Italian tropical wool suiting, known as the finest cloth in the world and graded in terms of a Super number. The higher the number, the finer the wool. These caps are all made from Super 80s or better, which means they will have similar performance qualities to our premium merinos. Perfect for riding across town and still looking refined and sophisticated on your next date.
The Super 80s are available in black and navy for $75.
The Highgrades are available in a dark blue nailhead and a light gray/blue for $90.
Fit wise, a small is 21.5 inches naturally and stretches to 22.5. A medium is 22.5 inches naturally and stretches to 23.5. A large is 23.5 inches naturally and stretches to 24.5. A traditional look with a modified four panel construction, fully lined and like all Outlier products made in New York City for style and quality.”
