|Why are Pearl Izumi clothes so U-G-L-Y ?||filtersweep|

|I realize it is part of cycling's "rich history" to provide garish clothing- but Pearl Izumi STILL seems to be stuck in the ZUBA mentality... unless we are talking about all-black shorts, there is bound to be something that is offensive.
Am I just out of touch?
Or, am I missing the point?

|The ugliest thing that Pearl Izumi makes cannot even touch anything by Primal Wear. If you wear anything by them you might as well be wearing the big floppy shoes and red nose too. I think the Primal Wear designers must be on acid.|

|What? You don't like the axe wielding clown motif?|
|Agreed... just another reason to hate cyclists||PODIUMBOUNDdotCA|

|It is the ugliest stuff I've ever seen. Skinny guys in spandex are bad enough... skinny guys in ugly stuff give people another reason to hate you.

|Personally, I can't stand most of the LOUD clothing(not Pearl).
Why the h-ll do people wear that cr-p?

|It seems PI uses an astonishing amount of PURPLE and related colors, pastels, earth tones (esp GREENs), day-glo neons... and they will even toss a PANEL of some crazy print down the side of an otherwise simple and plain article of clothing. Nothing is off limits.|

|Pearl Izumi doesn't just use a lot of pastel colors, they use a lot of colors. Pearl makes most of the popular jerseys worn by cycling teams. I would really like to know what you are comparing them to.|

|I beg to differ... it is a fashion of a completely different aesthetic. Canari (god forbid) offers more visible clothing than PI.|
