Merino wool is a core cycling fabric. For classic cycling jersey was made of merino, and the best continue that tradition. Outlier, specializing as they do in tailored performance clothing, transfers the material to a slightly more everyday garment – the t-shirt. Their Empire Merino T-Shirt has the same glorious feel, insulating and wicking ability, and practicality of the classic jersey. As usually, they’ve made their garment in New York, with the wool sourced from New Zealand.
The T-Shirt is named for Outlier’s friends in Empire, an upcoming film about having fun on your bike. Check out the Empire Merino T-Shirt in action and a trailer for the Empire movie after the jump.
