ugliest outerwear 07/08

i just got the '08 transworld snowboarding buyers guide, and theres some pretty nasty designs. the worst has to be the plaid, all of it.

mpd might like the volcom tie dye jacket/pants though..

opinions?

Wow you got your's pretty late. Yeah first thing I thought of when I saw the tye-dye set-up was MPD.

Even though you can't really judge from the magazine because they only have a few companies up and only a couple jackets each, I've done enough online research to say - WTF Holden? What were they thinking this year? At least on the girl's side. It looks horrible .. Like they're trying to make sophisticated peacoats in to boarding jackets or something. They really don't look that warm either.

Yeah that one piece is disgusting. Only way I'd wear that thing is if it was the damn warmest, most comfy, and most waterproof thing available. The L1TA one piece doesn't look that bad, if I had to rock one on that page. Burton's Ronin one is horrible to .. man what are they thinking.


Not sure about the ratings, I only know a few things in there from going on the websites and looking.

I tried looking when you mentioned you wanted a tye-dye jacket earlier in that other thread but couldn't find anything. It's in the Buyer's Guide, if you can get your hands on it, unless Volcom puts out their outerwear line online sometime soon.

Some of those plaids that burton has been coming up with are gnarly ugly. They have some good ones but theres a few SHADES OF PLAID I've seen retailers pick up that look like they've been sitting on the shelves because no one would even pay half price the colors so ugly.

This color scheme for example - its no beuno. Guess it just depends on what you're into.

Actually, I think that'd be more pin-stripeish. But yeah you're right. I've seen worse, though. I don't really have much a problem with plaid, I don't know why people hate it so much. It's just a pattern.

There're a few things out there that are definitely only for the really bold. For instance, the jacket and pants combo from Ride. The white and black patterned one? Maybe it's only for the girls, but you would seriously need to pull off some crazy moves for that thing to work.

I know a lot of people say snowboarding is going too much in to the fashion aspect of it, to which I'll agree to a certain extent .. but I don't really mind. I personally don't spend hundreds and hundreds on "steezy new outerwear" each season, but it's nice to get something that's more you're style than forcing everyone to wear the same thing. Reminds me of catholic schools.

I love tasteful pinstripes. My pants are chocolate brown with bronze pinstripes and their hot. That bag is just plain terrible though. Something like that shouldn't exist.

My fiance has some gree plaid snowboard pants (she skis, but ski stuff clothes are boring) and they look really good.
