SuspiciousFishI like how skiers somehow went from being gangstas to being homeless.
pinkcamo1000That's totally cool, I'm not being critical of Magnus and for the record I would wear pretty much anything if it was given to me for free.
I'm just saying that as a consumer, there's no way I'm going to support this brand just because they gave Magnus a ski suit. It's cool that their owner is a skier, but unless they start putting out their own content or funding cool events like rail jams or TAFT I'm not going to view them as a rider-owned brand. If I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on a ski suit, I'm either going to buy something from a big brand that will for sure be good quality or something from a smaller brand that's deeply invested in the newschool skiing community. If you ask me, KidSuper is neither of those things. Do they even have an NS account?
But most importantly, I think this ski suit just looks terrible. I don't think being able to design something that will look cool on the streets of NYC translates well to ski wear. In the city, everybody is viewing you from close up and the background is always some shade of brown/grey, so cool little details really pop out at you. On a ski hill you're always viewed from a distance up against a white background, which is why most ski wear is pretty simple and minimalist.
skiermanIt looks like he's trying way to fucking hard
SessionSo like a typical Skierman post?
