 Agree with you. Shirts to go to Ibiza to night clubs.

 I'm conflicted.

Big fan of Fearon, and like it when people are having a good time. And oftentimes the more ridiculous the better at some points.

On the other hand, this felt like a biking version of Macklemores thrift shop video (not sure if thats good/bad in this case),but there is no way I'd ever wear any of this apparel, even if it was free.

And... I actually like apparel with color. Apparently I can't handle aggressive prints though (shrug)?

 Got to love PB comments. Company releases all “plain” looking jerseys, PB comments “OMG I’m so tired of black, where’s the originality?”. Company launches shirts that are actually different, PB comments, “OMG cringe, who would wear this? Where’s the plain black?”
  • 8 10
 There is a middle ground. Stop being disengenous. Comments like this appears on every product release. Not everything is two extremes. Youre just sitting there pkaying the devils advocate.

 This is the bane of all clothing retail. Bright pieces bring folks in the door, but then most people are super basic so they go with grayscale, beige or dark blue items. Same with bikes. And cars. And pretty much everything else. Bunch of Karens and Chads

 Karen and Chad won’t wear a bright color, but they HAAAATE tipping and the LOOOOOOVE downvoting.

 @Riwajc: You're right but getting downvoted by the dorks who think a "party" shirt is a personality.

 These aren't original though. Give me some straight up psychedelic inspired, ORIGINAL artwork.

 Or you can just go to your local thrift shop and find a poly-cotton blend Hawaiian shirt for like $3.50
  • 24 0
 This. I'm laughing at the thought of people buying $90 shirts to imply that they're chill and know how to have a good time.
  • 2 2
 Cotton anything sucks in terms of breathability, even blends. But yes, would not spend $90 on this shirt.
  • 6 5
 No snap buttons is a miss but these types of shirts are great for riding. I’m sure the PBers that dress motocross light will disagree though.

 I like the tiki shirt. I also went to the thrift store before my trip to Hawaii where I scored a five pack of some kick ass Hawiian shirts.
  • 3 0
 but they're not "crafted with the mtb lifestyle in mind" and that's very important to my conscience
  • 23 1
 I prefer when middle-aged men dress in too tight clothes and look like a pack of skittles barfed on them.
  • 2 5
 It seems like you got a downvote from a manbunny.
  • 18 5
 yeah... nah not even close... these look like the kinda kooks that go to the beach to go surfing and all ride a 'party wave' together... they probably even wear pit viper sh1t...
  • 3 1
 Knock off pitties gang
  • 17 7
 What I like about it is that you absolutely can't take yourself too serious if you rock a look like this. Good reminder that this sport doesn't have to be serious all the time.

 Does have to be expensive all the time.

 If one is needing to wear a leopard skin button down and maintain impeccably manicured facial hair so they can prove to themselves they are not taking things too seriously.... they are most definitely taking things too seriously.

 Nobody knows how much you suck at riding if you're just hanging at the trailhead. Nobody knows you can't carve if you just hang at the base lodge.

Definitely validating gapers by having pros acting like Jerrys/Freds/Gapers in this ad......

I have never been at a party and found myself needing a specific, technical shirt, to properly fact, my shirt usually comes off pretty quick at parties...Big Grin

 Why? They built a ton of those W123. It isn't some rare car.
  • 1 0
 @93EXCivic: It's a 4-door and therefore an odd choice for modding/rodding. I wouldn't drop a dime on a quattroporte - they are inherently deficient but that is probably the joke here.
  • 1 0
 @suspended-flesh: it’s a German lead sled, not some muscle car. Four door is the way for these things. Also, who even has two-door merc money?

 @dirtyburger: I'll bet it weighs less than most classic muscle cars

 Maybe a little info on what makes them any better for riding than any opp shop shirt? (Which honestly would look way cooler)
  • 2 0
 Bang on, these things were only ever cool when you got it at the opp shop or from the auto parts shop in a five-pack for $10.

 Finally, might be able to get the Mrs out MTB'ing, get her a leopard print, collar and buttons, she'll have no excuses left!

 Seen these shirts in real life and they feel insanely good. They look better in real life too and I was already pretty keen on them when looking on the site. All these boomers who are like "awwhh so dumb i'm over this trend" need to chill out and get a grip. You're riding a push bike bro, have some fun with your sport
  • 3 2
 It’s not the shirt that’s annoying. It’s the lame fake party promo for shirts DorkCo up ZERO effort into designing.

At least Zoic or Club Ride actually choose fabrics/prints/cuts for their shirts.

DorkCo just went to a trade show and picked some stuff off a rack. If I want a cheap (but comfy and fun) casual polyester shirt for riding, I won’t pay their premium for a label.
  • 1 1
 @wyorider: Wow dude, your attitude sucks. Name calling? How old are you.. twelve?
  • 2 0
 @mosierman: DharCo’s product sucks. I’m just calling it out.

A lame photo shoot doesn’t make for good product. But hey, let’s be all positive about companies gouging people for “meh” stuff.

I specifically did name a couple of companies who do decent design for a reason…….

 I think I'll keep buying cheap synthetic Hawaiian shirts from Lowes.
  • 2 0
 If Pit Viper and Dixxon had an unplanned child.... and drank through the whole term.
  • 2 3
 Cheap shirts with something like a 300% markup for DorkCo. If you get a cheap, colorful shirt-that's fun. If you pay 90 bucks for the same cheap colorful shirt-you're a basic sheeple consumer.

These shirts are the equivalent of an open-mold frame, and I'll bet DorkCo just picked some samples off a rack at a trade show and ordered a bunch.
  • 2 1
 Sheeples, hate to tip, love to downvote. Super susceptible to advertising. Don’t know how outdoor gear supply chains work.

 Used to ride in Hawaiian shirts back when they were cheap. super practical never get too hot, finally a tech party shirt of retro radness. Definitely like it.

 The premier is definite clickbait, and with no real smoke. disappointing.

 You know shirts like this are $15-30 new without the label.

And I mean the exact…..same……stuff. An ex skater should have a keener BS meter.
  • 1 1
 @wyorider: Yeah but also nah. The price is steep and Target has tech Hawaiians for a third of the cost. But I’ve finally started buying name brand stuff and it’s so much better. Just gotta wait for the end of season deals.
  • 3 5
 A lot of bears with sore heads commenting on these shirts. Pretty sure that the majority of mountain bikers rode for the fun of it, and if that means having a bit of fun with the gear you wear too, what’s the issue?

I love the fact that DHaRCO don’t just stick to the boring solid colours across their range and produce a great variety of prints. It’s really good quality kit, too.

Added the leopard print party shirt to my collection a couple of weeks back, it’s lush.
  • 2 4
 Their buyers just selected some samples off a rack at a trade show. There are cheap shirts, no unique prints or ride specific features with a major markup. Tropical print polyester shirts are hella fun and comfy-and cheap. I'll bet you're a MucOff fanboi too........

 More pretentious garbage from dharco. Not only do they have a stupid name but all their clothes are ugly and these take the cake. I know exactly the type of aussies in this vid wannabe hipsters that think theyre so funny and ironic.
