Fashion in Paintball?

I'm absolutely positive that there used to be an old thread about this, but I can't find it; I am, however, really curious about fashion nowadays. I know that I should really "Be original," and "wear whatever is comfortable"; I'm not looking or that. There are obviously going to be trends out there, like the really baggy jersesy, or the tank top + elbow pad combo (Guilty). Just want to know what the people of paintball are wearing

PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A "SKILL > GEAR THREAD". I AM FULLY AWARE OF THIS.

What are people wearing nowadays that is "cool". Pretty straight forward.

I see where you're coming from with the bounces, but I decided to downsize my latest jersey purchase. It's my summer jersey (Invert LTD ZE), so I wanted something lighter and with less padding than my Empire Contact LTD, which has insane amounts of padding.

well i guess the guys above didn't read the bold print haha but i rock a pair of dyecam pants or khakis and a long under shirt under some kind of team jersey. And you have to complete it with some good hk army headbands and beanies. oh and goggles with mirror lens. Don't really know if thats what everyone is wearing now but it is what i like to rock haha

Buy what you think looks cool. I just bought my first Jersey and pants combo from ANSgear.com. and I think they look pretty sweet. They sent me the wrong jersey, but I am not complaining because it's the more expensive version of mine! Love it when things take a turn for the better.

Flex's are still big, HK is very popular, LYSK pants, shredders, padded xxl jersey's. It's pretty much the same. If you really want to get a sence of paintball fashion nowadays just look at the hk army agg or not thread.

Honestly man, I'm not saying skill>gear, but once your form/body position-ing and all of that jazz is down-pat, looking good will accompany closely behind it.

But, as far as "agg" gear, sandana headbands and such are a +

Haha, none of us can lie, we all lean toward some kind of look when wearing gear. Whether it be trendy or unique, no one is completely ignorant of appearance. Thread approved.

I like themes, where applicable. Right now, my fave theme is Donatello from TMNT. Solid purple OCD headband, Ize green Flex w/ purple frames, green Exalt throwbacks, and the real kicker, a green TMNT "shell" shirt (front & back graphics depict a turtle shell). My arm pads don't match (white Eclipse pads) but i'm thinking some green RIT dye can fix that.

Gat of choice is a Trilogy Tactical pump (camo green), which isn't entirely matching the theme, but the best i got.

LOL Donatello sounds dope. You need 3 more friends to make the rest of the TMNT... And maybe one more guy in white/brown/red headband who can be Splinter to make a 5 man team.

pretty much this. And free gear always finds a way of looking better.

I wear either a newer made jersey (better venting/padding), or a longsleeve, both in 2xl for bounces.

I wear dye pants or some kind of camo bdu pants.

I wear sandana headwear... one with mesh and one without, tied over the mesh one (layering for bounces).

I wear either a camo or a black dye pack. I use everyone elses' pods

I wear ATC cleats because they've lasted forever and I don't want to spend for new ones

I wear an i4 mask because I like the tight close fit of it, but it's not for everyone...

I wear dye armpads with the little glove extender things... I have black and green. Sometimes in the summer I wear just a tshirt and the green armpads instead of a jersey.

I wear arc'teryx military kneepads. Fantastic quality and military tough, but spendy. Of course, we only have two kneecaps, right?
