Curious - do you guys concern yourselves with color coordinating between all your things?

Solid color jacket, solid color pants. That's about it for me.

I have colors that I like, but I give very little thought about how they go together. Last time I wore my regular black pants with a brown hoodie. Two people told me that was a fashion faux pas, but to me, I'll wear whatever is clean and handy and gets me out the door the fastest.

I usually buy everything on sale so I'm not too picky but hopefully this summer I can pick up an obnoxious colored jacket so my friends can spot me easier.

I never match but that is the look i go for... I have three pairs of snowpants and two coats. I just grab a pair of pants and a coat and go. They dont clash to bad, they are all solid colors except one of my coats. I just dont really care how i look on the slopes.

I will actually admit that im guilty of this. But then again, its how I dress when I'm not boarding. From baseball hat, to shirt, to nikes..it matches. Even when going to work..my suit, shirt, tie, belt and shoes. Gotta stay fresh n pimpin regardless of the occassion.

Color coordinating is for skiers.
A sign i saw somewhere comes to mind. It said "one can not ski well unless one is color coordinated"

Thumbs down

anyone else find this exact question being asked 999999x ridiculous redundant?

who cares what you wear, if you like it you like it...
you're on a board riding, your ride style and how much fun you have is what you should be worried about... it's not a runway contest.
Although if you're into that runway stuff you may find like-minded friends at Anorexia.com - Symptoms and Treatment for Eating Disorders

wear what keeps you warm/dry/comfortable, and was is not going to restrict your riding.

You can match all you want, nothing against it, but why ask what other people think?


Seems to me people who ask this question are most likely the people that want to "BE SEEN SNOWBOARDING" or look like the "CAN SNOWBOARD" rather than snowboarding for themselves...

end rant.

ok then why are there different colors and varieties of identical jackets. All jackets with the same waterproofness are pretty identical and will keep you warm and dry. Then you can go and pick colors and style. When you have such a huge list of jackets and pants you can get the colors you like.
It gives people some variety. Snowboarding will only ever be about boarding for me but its fun to get some of youre own style out on the mountain. You get to express yourself more which differs this sport from soccer or football. And you say youll where anything thatll keep you dry and warm. If I offered you a 20K Ed Hardy jacket for $50, would you take it?
