What's with the hype of TNF jackets? North Face was played out 5 years ago --- the jacket looks ugly. Only 40 something soccer dads wear that shit in my city.
I don't get it. Can anybody explain? I could see if you're going to use it for hiking, but that's about it.
What do you want us to explain to you? Honestly I don't know where you get off thinking TNF is played out - they're one of the biggest names out there in terms of outerwear, and have been for awhile. Most of that can be attributed to quality, simplistic design, and general affordability. For those very reasons it's also a universal brand, which explains why you see "40 something soccer dads" and "14 year olds" rocking it.
Secondly, to each his own but I think you're the first one I've seen to claim this collab is ugly. I understand complaints about it being overpriced, but ugly? Nah.
