yeah true, i'd lie to see more innovative designs though, adaptable clothing with more features, i think burton had a coat with ipod controlls on the sleeve, things like that, more interactivity, how cool would ap clothing be if you could buy lets say extra sleeves for a jacket with more pockets sewn in or body armour in them, not just hoods that zip off
sorry, changing the subject a bit here, but imagine the ap vest, a bit longer kind of jacket length, with a front zip, then another zip to fit it inside an external shell, and with zips to attach extra sleeves, plain fleece or even lycra/nylon sleeves, to be used as a mid/base layer which too could be attached to the shell layer which too has removable/interchangable arms/hood, an ap hood with goggle attachments, flightdeck speaker inserts and or earmuffs, the whole set could be sold as one with every combination of vest, arms, hoods, shell, backpack, even shorts with zip on legs etc, like a completely versatile exoskeleton,or sold as separate components to gradually build up or strip down according to the particular need/activity.
one kit for every situation/sport etc extra add ons will always be dreamed up to keep the line fresh, in other colours or with camo options etc
the same concept could even apply to lifestyle clothing, maybe not in such great detail but along the same lines.
dunno, just feel more could be done
