Thumbs up Baggy or tight, who cares

I was always told stories of how styles come and go, but i was never told a story of how a generation held onto the fashion they loved.
Its pretty clear now that we snowboarders have come to adopt and claim the baggy outrageous style for our own. The xxxl sizes and neon checkerboards we rock set us apart from the lame and generally old skiers we have so brilliantly defied. However, as we have all noticed, this style of independence, defiance, and sTeez is encountering an opposing style of tight threads. I for one am all for new fashion and style, but do we take on a style that conforms and appeases those skiers?
Should we duck dive under this wave or stand up and give it a ride in? or Can we adapt tight threads into our culture and find steez in it as well?

I for one feel that this question should have never been asked. It's not the threads we wear its how we wear them. As long as you can pull off and find style in your appearance thats steez enouph. Baggy or tight, you are still a snowboarder.

First off, your opinion of skiers is a little off. My wife skis and she isn't an 84 year old Japanese man in neon green and purple. Also, I don't wear those obnoxious sk8er punk fashions that some of the "cooler" kids rock. I tend to laugh at the kids in baggy clothes. Fall off rail, pull up pants, repeat. Maye I don't conform to the anti-conformist snowboarder fashions.

Secondly, y-o-u-r-e means you are, y-o-u-r means your.

i wear nomis pants which are super baggy, when im on the mountain, but girls jeans if im playing around on some street shit we set up. it all depends the tightest jeans you can find are often super warm and keep your legs nice and comfy when its not snowing out.


and they make me buttery like sexton.

I don't think the tight pants trend conforms to the style wishes of skiers at all. The tight pants that snowboarders wear are cut like skinny or bootcut jeans. They have a very defined and tailored shape. The pants that skiiers wear don't have any shape at all.

In a world where skiiers now copy snowboarders in terms of fashion we need to keep pushing the limits of what we think is cool on the hill. I see skiiers these days trying sooo hard to be like snowboarders, wearing baggy snowboarding branded outerwear or buying their Helly Hansen shit two sizes too big and skiing on twin tips. Skiiers don't understand the tight pants movement in snowboarding and I doubt they ever will.

Anyone can wear they own style. We cant really judge other people by what they wear right?

My jacket is pretty regular, But it does look cool with all my gear.
I wear semi baggy because thats what im confortable in. I dont like tight snow pants.

I think miami from technine has one of the best styles right now. partly because he bucked the gangster trend for technine (maybe this is why he wasent in familia?) and because although he wears tight pants, hes managed to look different then the whole ashbury team.

which i like dont get me wrong, but they all have the almost exact same style.
