Ryan_HansenI like wearing Armada gear casually.
Tall T productions
StosePretty much none of those are street wear. IF you're looking within the ski industry then check out jiberish and nightrain. Other then that check out sites like jack threads and plndr and hypebeast
EggsOverSteezyAll of those companies most definitely sell streetwear. Orage has Mike Nick from Siver at the helm, tall t productions literally says they sell shirts in their name, full circle and phar north are small street wear companies out of Bellingham WA and Bozeman MT respectively. You are uninformed my friend...
StoseThe irony of your last sentence. Streetwear isn't just anything you wear off the hill. Here is a definition for you. "Street wear is a distinctive style of street fashion. Rooted in West Coast surf and skate culture, it has grown to encompass elements of hip hop fashion, Japanese street fashion, and modern Haute couture fashion." aka not tall t or phar north.
EggsOverSteezyStreetwear clothing is notoriously difficult to define, even by those who wear it. This may be because, as its name suggests, streetwear is largely a grassroots fashion movement influenced by what is currently happening “on the streets,” and is thus constantly evolving. It is possible to isolate a few general principles of streetwear, however. First of all, it is usually centered upon casual, comfortable pieces such as jeans, t-shirts, baseball caps, and sneakers. It is also influenced by hip-hop and skateboarding styles as well as 1980s nostalgia, and often features bold colors, graphic prints, and retro designs and logos.
The times they are a changing.
StoseDon't confuse your lack of understanding for changing times. Here are some well known street wear brands for you to browse
I really don't know how else to put it so you will understand, but street wear is not just any clothing you wear out. It's an actual style.

[tk]It's fucking clothes you don't wear skiing dude. No need to overcomplicate it and start an argument. Move on, or leave to a Supreme forum.
EggsOverSteezySo if most of what I listed did not qualify as "streetwear" what other ski industry brands besides Jiberish and Nighttrain would qualify?
StoseM elihu when it was around. Saga had a small line of button downs and pants. There isn't much streetwear in the ski industry because they are two separate things. Just like you don't see much ski stuff in the streetwear industry
EggsOverSteezyI was starting to see your side of the argument until you added Saga. How is Saga different from Orage? Saga is not West Coast, Surf or Skate culture or Japanese Street fashion. In addition how does an outerwear company count when a strictly street fashion company aka tall t and phar north do not? Not trying to argue just see what you mean. I like looking fresh and supporting ski brands whilst sounding intelligent so if your point is correct I would like to know more.
StoseSaga did a line of clothes that was button downs and pants. That particular line was a little more street wear than typical ski clothing companies do. Saga isn't street wear
