DUDE KINDA NAILS IT
Are you f—ing kidding me? That’s the first thought that came to my mind when I turned to page 38 of the February 2018 issue (46.5), which is the Gear Locker guide to $119 jeans and $220 shoes. I read Powder for powder. I can open up a Macy’s catalog if I want to know what kind of skinny jeans I should tuck inside my boots. Maybe it’s a hidden puzzle called, “Who can find the real skier?”
Dude No. 1: “I used to ski before I hurt my back. That’s why I stand with my hands on the back of my hips like this.”
Dude No. 2: “I can’t figure out why my feet are getting wet in my waterproof, breathable, taped seam, anti-microbial boots.”
Dude No. 3: “It’s because you cuffed your pants. You need to tuck them in your boots like I do with my skinny jeans.”
Dude No. 4: “You clowns are unbelievable. I got my 501’s at Target for $39.99. Are you really selling them for $119?”
I was thinking about canceling my subscription until I figured out the puzzle. Thanks! Jim Faull
