Outlier Logo

The thing about highly technical clothing is, well they mostly look so technical. But that is not the case with Outlier. They somehow manage to use a function driven design process and high quality technical fabrics without having to compromise on style. I mean when i saw their minimal backpack i was truly amazed. The backpack is made with nonwoven Dyneema so its 10x stronger than steel but yet very light. And then they have the classic wool peacoat that is highly water and wind resistant. Yes to sum it up, Outlier simply delivers amazing pieces. So here it is, the interview with Abe Burmeister, the founder of Outlier (props to Roy for making it happen)

1. Describe your brand with three words:
Freedom, Honesty and Movement

2. Tell us why your brand kicks ass:
We make the things that we think the world needs but that don’t exist yet

3. Name one accessory you cant live without and why:
iPhone is the closest thing cause it eliminates so many other things. We don’t really like objects at Outlier we like anti-objects, things that take the place of multiple things and make your life lighter and easier to move freely around in.

4. Fill in the blanks: When i was a kid ….. and now ….
When i was a kid hungry to learn and now hungry to create.

5. What would be your last meal:
A Clean Slate sandwich from Saltie

Thank you Abe and Roy for doing the interview and i wish Outlier all the success in the future.
