Outlier: creating the most high-tech pants you’ve ever worn
Five years ago, New Yorker Abe Burmeister decided that he needed some new pants. He’d ripped through every previous pair of jeans he’d owned through biking to work every day, so he went on a grand adventure to find the perfect pair of agile yet classy pants. All he came up with after a year of looking was a pair of Swiss shorts made of some moisture wicking and stretchy material he’d never seen before. He called up the shorts makers, who said they had no intention of selling any pants. So Abe Burmeister decided he’d just make his own pants, even though he knew nothing about pants.
