Yes lol. I like those. I have a Columbia fleece and also a North Face fleece jacket. They're both warm. I did not but it for the brand.

People are still wearing their North Face Jackets?

What else would you recommend that they do with them, other than the obvious which is to wear them? Pray, please do tell, enlighten us with your cogitations.

Why would anyone care what brand jacket people are wearing? Mine are mostly Columbia, but I get what I see on sale that I like.

My favorite jacket is looking threadbare in the cloth front, and occasionally when we have a really cold night I sleep in it. I'm looking for one which looks a bit less worn but it must be warm and in budget, which is the problem. Sure wish someone who goes to the local thrift shop thought their nice warm, but 'out of date' coat wasn't 'in' enough...

Here people wear things till they cease to function.

He might care a little more for function over fashion if he lived somewhere that actually gets cold.

It will be in the 60's here tomorrow, 50 or so in the morning. My students will come to school with scarves, gloves, a few will be wearing long underwear, and down/fleece winter coats. They will then complain about being uncomfortably hot in class.

If it gets into the 60's here tomorrow, plenty of people will be out in shorts and t-shirts. LOL I won't, though. I get cold a lot easier than I used to.

Hmmm it doesn't get cold in MD? It was 28 degrees here the other day and I didn't see as many NF coats as I used to about 5 to 8 years ago (hence the OP discussing whether or not NF is still popular or not in your neck of the woods ). Heaven forbid someone actually starts a thread on fashion and fashion critique in the fashion and style subforum. For all of the NF owners that say they don't give a crap, why would you bother to post then in the fashion forum if you don't give a crap about fashion? I get it I get it, the jeans + black NF fleece is safe and conservative. It is pretty much the suburbanite uniform in many parts still.

Meh, 28 degrees in fall/winter is hardly what I consider cold. I'm sure if I actually paid attention, I would see plenty of NF here but I don't care what brand of clothing people choose to wear. Hell, I may buy some Carhartt gear this year. I will probably need it.

Last time I checked, what is considered fashionable is largely subjective. I'm not sure why someone who likes jeans and fleece jackets and a more casual style shouldn't be allowed to post here. Some people like that style, others don't.
