Cozy Up - Garish in Person




A lot of people ooo-ing and ahhh-ing on the Facebook sites for these two versions of the Cozy Up Jacket. However, in person the colors are much brighter and the black printed areas look rather garish. I did not like them AT ALL. They photograph a lot cuter than they are in real life. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Update - Changed out the photos that illustrate my point better. The jackets in these photos look more like they do in real life - very bright and ugly.

They definitely "messed up" a nice jacket with that print. I bet a Remix comes out in this print too...another case of the graphic designer dropping too much acid (SERIOUSLY did they hire a youngster with extremely bad taste to design their prints of late ???)

The original Canadian color combos were so much nicer. Charcoal gray with black stripe? Nice. I love the fit of this jacket, but these colors- not so much.

@houndlvr - Totally agree about the prints, they are awful. I also don't like all the stripes showing up ala the Competition Jacket - I can get boring striped workout wear from Target - yawn. Where is the pretty stuff?

@CJ - I also agree about the Canadian color combos - they were much better.

I saw the blue color in person and totally do not agree with the bright comment. It looked really great on the person that was wearing it but I guess its all up to personal preference.

Hmm, ladies which Canadian colors did you like better? Here in the states we only got the two colors you've pictured here and I wound up getting the pink one (yes, with the garish black design ;). I actually found the pink less garish and loud than many other recent pinks (Pow, Bonbon, Kiss etc) altho the blue did not suit me. Both sold out in moments. Anyhoo, I ALSO went and ordered the pink stripe on line before it sold out, and am now sitting on both these pink beauties trying to decide which to keep. LOVE fit/ length/ feel of this jacket (which is similar to the old IGLOO from 2/3 yrs ago which I loved) but not sure about the scary colors. Thoughts on the grey/ in person???? Now we have free shipping I can still order than on line!
