    So I have had a North Face Fleece for a few years before a lot of people were wearing them in my area but now EVERYONE is wearing them. Opinions are they still cool or what is the next THING everyone will be wearing in the fall or winter?

    Some shit from Zara, fashionable, not overpriced, and perfect for mild vancouver weather.

    Unless you mean when I ski (most of the winter).

    Then it depends if I am racing or not LOL

    I have a nice thin but amazingly warm and wind-proof (polypro?) polartec stretchy fitted jacket that I got at REI. It's been my amazing layering tool for the last few years. Best. Jacket. Ever. I'm sorta screwed though - I picked it because it was the only one without obnoxious branding sewn into it. But now the zipper is wearing out and the tags have faded so they can't be read. Of course, they're not in the store any more. No idea who made it.

    NorthFace is one of those brands that are always going to be around. They make quality clothing that you can use for regular wear or for hiking/outdoor activities. It's amazing for making fleece and windbreaker type jackets and people love them. You're always getting your moneys worth with NorthFace.. same with Marmot.

    Tell everybody the next cool thing and ruin it for me?
    No way!
    Next thing you know my favorite outdoor brand becomes the next Eddie Bauer or The Noeth Face.

    Even though North Face has changed somewhat from the old days, it is just plain good shit.

    I have a North Face parka that is about 40 years old. It has been in for one maintenance update and adding of down. It is a beautiful thing.

    Marmot jackets are pretty good. About the same price as North Face and actually useable.

    I have some North Face stuff that I really like. If you're into outdoor clothing, check out Arcteryx, Mountain Hardware and Spider. They all make great stuff that looks good but is still very functional.

    you should only be allowed to wear North Face apparel if you ski.

    I take slight offense to this! I ski, occasionally, but really, I live in a place that's gets snow and LOTS of it! and gets cold too! and where the winter can extend through May. Hence why I enjoy my North Face stuff, especially the down coat, helps keep ya warm on those below zero nights or snow blowing 2 inches of snow! haha. So I don't think you should say it should only be allowed for people who ski.

    North Face is blowing up because they're taking over the ski industry! Not really, but they've been picking up so many big name riders and stepping up their outerwear game so much, its not surprising that its getting more popular right now.

    And to the guy that made the white people clothing joke... North Face has probably sold more winter parkas with fur lined hoods to gang members than skiers. Probably the most legit brand possible, if you listen to Biggie he makes North Face references in a lot of his tracks.

    Every time I wonder if maybe you aren't really white, you go back to your roots and surprise me.

    I love my NorthFace down coat. I walk 2miles to school everyday (in the Indiana snow belt), and it helps out in the winter.

    However I was a little down because I'm not sure I wanna wear that this winter for I will look like a typical Indiana gal with Coach, AE, and A&F BUT...
    I decided to go on a Paul Smith binge and accesorize exclusivley with Paul Smith and Ted Baker this winter. If anyone knows how to get a hold of a nice pair of chinchilla mittens I would forever be grateful.

    So it's okay to wear something everyone has just mix it up with something not so typical.

    Back in 2005 anyone who was anyone had the Denali and I still have mine (black.) I moved so far south I have not even seen one in hall closets I have looked into at my friends' places here.

    I still think it is cool and hip. It says "I went to private school ... and I want you to know that." icon_lol.gif
