I like the baggy style. but the acting thug is the thing that bothers me. thats just not cool...for me anyways. But whatever floats your boat. you shouldnt care about what other people wear. who gives a shit really? just go out and have fun.
You can't be mistaken about an opinion. Its not all about the clothing, either. I think some KIDS, yes, KIDS make clothing a big deal because that's how they are able to recognize a "newschool" skier; therefore, they try to emulate it.
You can't stop a trend, you can't. You can't deny someone their right to opinion, either.
1. You really didn't expect this to turn into an argument? Really? You've been here since 2008, almost a year...I would expect you to know NS better than that.
2. You posted this in SITE DISCUSSION - yes, this is a discussion, but not about the site - you're just asking to get bitched at.
3. Yes, you did deny someone their opinion:
"I like the baggy style. but the acting thug is the thing that bothers me. thats just not cool...for me anyways. But whatever floats your boat. you shouldnt care about what other people wear. who gives a shit really? just go out and have fun."
...followed by; "You're mistaken."
4. Yes, you do want to stop the trend, or at least that's what you said:
"lets make skiing more about the sport and less about the clothing."
...but trends ARE skiing! Style is a trend, afterbang is a trend, Newschool skiing is a fucking trend! You cannot stop trends in skiing because skiing revolves around those trends. What's hot at the moment is what's iconic for skiing - right now it's baggy clothes and double flips. Some trends outlast others, but skiing and its support are trend driven.
Why do you think riders are sponsored to "rep" gear? For free? No! To make the gear seem cool! Skiing is a sport but it is also a business, and the sport/business relationship will be forever intertwined.
Just my two cents.
Then write better. If everyone who reads this comes to one conclusion, I'm pretty sure we can't all be "idiots." Try rereading...
"Say what you mean, don't mean what you say." Words to live by, mang.
really? is this what some people resort to? grow the fuck up and man up a little bit. and yes, im 22, i will take a pic of my ID, then you take a pic of yours and we willl see who is older. challenging someone to a fight is about the most pathetic thing you can do, its even more pathetic if you do it over the internet, its even more pathetic if the fight is over 1000 miles away. yea, and im the bitch. can we get a banhammer for that deaththreat?
