jealous of your susceptibility to pathetic marketing, or?....
My comment, you droolingly stupid morons, refers to their IDIOTIC assurance that their COTTON SWEATSHIRTS are TECHNICAL in their performance. (you know, cotton...the shit that drinks water like a fat bitch drinks milkshakes).
There's zero new or revolutionary about their approach to making softgoods...the crux of their marketing campaign. Whether their shit is quality or not, they're not what they say or even think they are. Their entire mission statement is the most contrived, trite thing I've read in months. A pro team hyping your shit before you have a single garment to ship? Ok. Just goes to show how small the pie is in skiing that pro/am kids are desperate to be attached to a company that, for all they know, will make straight garbage. Newsflash children, you don't HAVE to buy shit because it's new and neon.
If a company really wants to be "original, and for the people", they'd drop the pro skier as icon/hero-spokesperson (because an 18 year old "pro" telling someone how chill a hoodie is the only way to sell shit I guess?), and actually design their gear around their OWN vision, as opposed to aping what's already on the market on every level from cut/fit to color ways (because what skiing needs is more rasta colored hoodies, and blatant Jiberish ripoffs). Putting the onus on little more than children with zero fashion acumen to design your line is a cop out. If you don't see how cynical it is for people to say, "hey....these moron kids Looooove Jiberish, but man...that shit's a bit pricey. I know! We'll follow exactly in their footsteps and just cut a few corners, while simultaneously branding our gear as "technical and performance minded", well....I hope you all fall down a flight of stairs into a pool of angry heat-seeking dildos.
Not to mention shipping costs roughly $30 for a $60 hoodie. (That's 50% for the special children in this thread).
I hate internet shit, but, inb4 "u mad, ginger comments, and 'Matty and co. are real chill dudes pushing the sport gargle gargle'"
Having fun at skiing's expense since '09.
