OT: Really Liking the Burton US Olympic Team Jackets

 

I think the US Snowboard Team Jackets are super cute. I much prefer this plaid to Lululemon's version in the Run: Leader of the Track jacket. Maybe because it's a traditional plaid pattern. I've read they aren't planning to sell them. That's too bad, I'm sure they'd sell a lot.

The colour combo on the US jacket is very nice... I also like the leader of the track though, I've *almost* bought it a few times now!

I love it. I saw that Shaun White gave Oprah one today! I agree i prefer it to the lulu version as well!

The Burton set is super cute. I think the leader of the track jacket is also quite cute but I can't justify the price for a thin "windbreaker" and I think a pullover style would get annoying for on/off. I'd buy it on sale but not full price.

I think the Leader of the Track Jacket is overpriced, too. It's not even lined. For that matter, so is the Clarity Vest at $98. I might get both on markdown but they'd have to be at least 30% off.

Hi...are the groove biker shorts reversible? If so, what color does the black one reverse to?...

I just had a discussion with my hubby about this jacket...LOVE IT.
I guess Jake Burton doesn't want to "sell out" like Ralph Lauren. Just seems like an odd (poor) business decision to me.
Imagine a Velocity Jacket in this YUM!!!!

@ Anon 1:46 - Yes the Groove Biker shorts are reversible. The black ones reverse to black - the logo is on both sides of the waistband in the same spot. I'm not sure what color the other reverses to.

The static charcoal ones are not reversible.
