No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).
Also, when driving, white people love putting their turn signal on about a half mile before the turn.
Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

We live in a richer world. But the gap between rich and poor is still very wide in individual countries. How to change this? Listen to Rob and Harry’s discussion, and learn some related vocabulary.
James Reinhart spent months trying to get somebody, anybody, to invest in his idea: an online clothing exchange for women and kids.
A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.
There are those who combine as well. I see the north face fleece vest over a lot of business casual here in SF and the silicon valley. I think they give you one when you move to the peninsula.
You will be invoiced in Ringgit, the final BND price will depend on the exchange rate applied by your credit card/bank
I love the soft feel of clothes that come out of the dryer. I also love the fresh smell of line dried clothes. What I do is hang the clothes to dry, then pop them in the dryer for about 10 minutes with a damp wash cloth/towel to soften them. This saves electricity also since I have an electric dryer.
A lot of North Face stuff is made in Sri Lanka that has one of the worst human rights records on the planet.
I love outdoorsy people who think that nobody else could possibly be outdoorsy and thus should not be wearing outdoor gear. The worst culprits of this are people who work inside at gear shops and have superiority complexes

Even once they had collected the material, the team still faced the extraordinary task of building the genetic sequence. Given the enormous volume of data, the task was akin to shredding hundreds of thousands of copies of Moby Dick and then pasting the individual sentences back together into a meaningful order.

Rob Well, you know your saris well because that is the right answer. Well done! Now, before we go, it's time to remind ourselves of some of the vocabulary that we've heard today. Will.ariganusaru
And I always feel like the outdoor clothing is an indication that well, we just might have climbed down from the closest snowcapped peak to grab this java at Starbucks. Appearing to be in a state of constant and serious exploration of the outdoors seems to be key.
I live on the OR coast, just West of Portland (even more rain 70-100 inches), and you feel pretty stupid (regardless of race) not wearing waterproof clothing. We basically get wind-driven rain for about 10 months solid, and if you are at the office and head out for anything- lunch, home, post office- you better be wearing a Marmot or a N face with a hood. My personal favorite: the Seattle cowboy hat - this is a waterproof goofy looking floppy hat with a drawstring to keep the wind from blowing it off. You need rain pants to walk the dog and we have shoes that feel kind of like nikes but don t get wet. Other popular N Coast items: generators, coleman stoves, board games, canned food, lots of matches/candles (for when the storms knock out the power for a week). If you have to barbeque outside after your house just got its roof blown off in December and you ve been out of power for a week, yeah, guess what- bring on the cool outdoor gear. Its not like my brother in CA wears this stuff, hes white, but he just doesn t get all that crazy rain.

When I was growing up, my friends all looked down on NF. I think it s because everybody was a ski racer, so the preferred brand was Spyder, or other European sport brands, as opposed to outdoor brands.
