whenever i have money & go out shopping with a purpose (something particular in mind) i can never find it. it's not until i'm "shopping" without money (wishful thinking type) that i find shit that i like.
murphy's law...i damned myself (in more ways than one) by marrying a murphy.
i should change my name back to arrison now that we're divorced...come to think of it, my life was much nicer when i was an arrison.

I never plan my clothes, usually just walk into a shop and see something thats sick, and buy it if Im after something new. Its more fun going out to the shop and not knowing what your gonna come back with!
Oh and the 10K/10K advice is worthwhile. ESPECIALLY for the trousers cos your gonna be sitting around alot in the snow.

|Dcp584||Alot of that stuff is subject to fit. You shoudl try on boots, you should try on goggles. Hats jackets and all that trivial crap is just what you like and what not. But pants and jackets are nice to have high mm waterproofing.|

agreed...having 10k/10k is way more important than the brand name or the color.
and again, i strongly suggest you go to a board shop & try shit on. not only will you save on shipping, but you may even catch a sale. and you'd be supporting your local shredder, as opposed to some bigger corporation.
and with boots, you DEFINITELY need to try them on in a shop. boots aren't something you buy just for looks. read through the threads on this site regarding boots. ...like i said, do some research, don't just go off a pipe dream. i know it's fun looking up all the stuff you want to buy...it's like looking through the toys r us catalog at christmas time, but these things have a purpose (to be functional) which should be your main concern.

|alaric||I'll be honest, mixing the most RANDOM colors and patterns up can seriously look really sweet. Find just randomly looking outwear that has a rating of 10/10k or above, and if you like it, buy it!|

thanks alot im gonna look for some other jackets
but I have been trouble finding jackets that go well with the rest of that stuff
|10-10-2007 05:26 PM|
That's a $400 jacket... you sure you want to spend that much? Look at other jackets, you can get better bang for your buck. I'll personally recommend Sessions and 686
EDIT - And now that I look even closer, its only 10k/5k... look at a different jacket. Spending that much on a jacket when it's not even 10k/10k or greater just isn't the smartest thing ever, but each to his own.
