    Swayze wore that fleece in Red Dawn, and its a staple of the frat uniform... but I see it more and more now, everyone's wearing TNF... the stock was a joke when we were trading it and they took it back private in the late 90s... but now every geed and old lady seems to be rolling around in some North Face. wtf?

    That was the worst... late 90s I saw some NF gear in a cardboard box at Sams Club and knew that shit wasn't legit... monitored the Yahoo boards and tanked the stock... they seem to be rebounding now though.

    It gets chilly out and everyone is wearing fucking North Face. It's kind of weird.

    Used to be really high end and even prohibitively expensive (for us) at their outlet.
    Now they sell it at Dick's.
    ( and other disposable/ wear it for a season- chuck it/ junky Chinese stores)


    Probably can't count the money it's coming in so fast.
