New York City - Wednesday November 19, 2008 WWW.OUTLIER.CC
OUTLIER is about classically tailored garments made with the best technical fabrics around. Clothing that works from both bike to boardroom.
Outlier's aim is to make clothing for a world where bikes are the best mode of transit through public spaces. Designed for the maximum in versatility, both socially and technologically, Outlier clothing looks great no matter where you are in the day, riding to work, meeting with clients, or out on the town. Clothes you can buy based on their classic styling and construction, and appreciate their performance with a cool discernment. Outlier's strives to create future classics, clothing that works as well a century down the road as it will tomorrow.
Aimed at the urban dweller that has a slightly different world view than the rest. They ride their bicycles to work because of the way it makes them feel, refreshed yet exhilarated. They ride to work because it is the best way to navigate the city, with complete freedom. This audience is well-educated, opinionated and have a keen sense of style that others often look to.
Two years ago, Abe and Tyler began to search for a solution to a basic problem; how to ride their bikes to work and show up looking crisp, fresh and clean. The stresses of cycling wore out their jeans. On days when they needed to dress up for clients, they either suffered the train or performed awkward superman maneuvers in bathrooms to change. Rain of course was a persistent problem too.
Not knowing each other at the time, they both independently started to tackle the same issues, convinced there was a better way. It wasn't until an insightful barista at their local coffee shop, Gimme Coffee, put two and two together and connected the pair. It was at that point Outlier was born. Tailored performance clothing for cycling in the city.

Heartbreak is setting in for family and friends of the bicyclist killed by a hit and run driver. Roy Sekreta, 43, had set a goal of biking 4,000 miles this year. He was on his way home from work Monday night when a 25-year-old man slammed into him on Comanche at Vassar. That driver orginally fled the scene and returned 30 minutes later. Police said he admitted to hitting Sekreta. Sekreta was married and worked as a design engineer for a local solar panel company. Police will present their investigation to the district attorneyʼs office. The D.A. will decide wither to charge the driver with a crime.I never met Roy, but I knew his bike well- we shipped it as a special order to a great shop of ours- Bicycle South Windsor in South Windsor, CT. Sadly, the bike arrived to the customer with a dent in the frame, so I had to strip a bike and send the frame to replace the dented one. Afterwards, Roy sent a letter (or email) thanking us for the replacement because he loved the way the bike rode and was just so bummed when he got it and it was dented... he wanted a perfect bike and we supported that. So, it isn't like I "knew" him, but I do still feel like I "met" him. His loss is terrible.
No one could descend like Roy. We grew up when Tomac was king, and I swear he rides just like him. He also rode with Hincappie, and a mutual friend of theirs visited him just this year for a ride together. Roy was the perfect mellow-man and respectful rider.For anybody who feels the desire to do something to honor this man, please donate to either of the charities that have been set up in his honor or by request of the family;
