      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

North Face Jackets can get you Mugged

Recommended Posts

Heard this on the radio this morning. Supposedly these jackets cost $500.

 

"In years past, it was the Air Jordan sneakers, the Starter jackets, the Eddie Bauer parkas. This year, the fashion accessory most likely to get a teenager beaten up at the bus stop is the North Face jacket. "

 

Unfortunately, I couldn't get the article from the Washington Times.

And the hottest selling item for fashion accessories is now little REI sticker patches to put over the North Face emblem while waiting at a busstop or walking down dark, deserted alleyways.

When I was growing up in NYC, North Face puffies were definitely an urban fashion statement. Strange that they still are.

Supposedly the Denali TNF jacket is a Bellevue-teen fashion statement...

 

Those jackets have been a "piece de rigeur" since they were introduced.

 

I heard that for a season Koflach plastic boots were a must have item in the NY dance club scene. yellaf.gif

Now back around 91 or so the BOREAL LASER was the hot clubbing shoe, with those sporty pink stripes and all.

I got some 5 year old, well worn plastics that I'd give up for some serious NYC or Hollywood green. All those miles and altitude have given them some real cool style. Openning bid $$$$?
