It was a sad day for me to come to find North Face apparel at Macy's and Nordstroms two major giants who have nothing to do with the great outdoors. I have been wearing North Face goods for the past 15 years and part of the appeal was the exclusivity of the product, that this was not your mainstream brand. I enjoyed going strictly to our local outdoor/camping store for my North Face apparel, but now it seems that anyone with little appreciation for the history of the brand can now purchase it as if they were buying Nike. I should have know something was fishy when I went to their website sometime ago and there jacket lineup was completly different. The jackets looked less technical and more fashion concious. As if they were going to model down some runway. I have bought my last North Face item and I am now searching for the next best thing.
Good Bye North Face
