The collab of the week (month? year?) has got to be Outlier's project with Wurst Editions and Williamsburg butcher Emily's Pork Store. It's the best kind of teamwork: Small-batch clothing company Wurst made a crisp pair of shorts using Outlier's lightweight 4Season fabric. Then they brought in Emily's Pork Store, which contributed two sausages—yes, sausages—to the final package. Buy them at the Outlier site, where for $139.99 you get natty bottoms plus one sopressata each in spicy and sweet. (Non-carnivores can opt for the vegan option for $129.99.) But act fast—the dry sausage will last for a while, but they only made 40 pairs of shorts.
