Question WTH is the deal with Newschoolers and "Jiberish"?

I was perusing the Newschoolers forum buy/sell. All I see is "JIBERISH 2XL JIBERISH 3XL JIBERISH JIBERISH JIBERISH JIBERISH"

So I look it up, it is just rather plain looking cotton hoodies and shirts that also happen to come in big sizes.

What's the history of this and why are they so obsessed? You don't see anything like that in the snowboarding world. I guess I should ask there but I sell and buy shit there occasionally and I don't want to get voted down, lol.

Looking like Alvin and the Chipmunks is all the rage with the plankers right now.

Kind of like an extreme hospital gown.

lol @ alvin. I know it's the style but why Jiberish in particular? Is it like Bum Equipment in the 90's? You aren't cool with just any giant assed shirt to your ankles it has to be Jiberish?

My question is about Jiberish in particular.. I mean they have a hundreds of page long thread for trading the stuff. It's just strange to see such extreme brand loyalty so maybe they have a reason for it? Like some pro started it, or whatever. Like I am sure if you look here you will see Saga and Jiberish 10x on one page.

Maybe cuz freeskiing scene is fairly new there aren't many brands they consider to be freeski gear.
