    one of my friends recently pointed out that loads of durham uni students seem to be wearing black north face gilets. whilst walking through the town today i noticed about a dozen students wearing these gilets! can anyone shed some light on why these items of clothing seem to be the craze at the moment? is it just my friend and i or has anyone else noticed this?

    Gilets are acceptable if you ride a horse, or in the case of north face Gilets, climb, oh yeah and if you're a rowing rah then a splash proof one is ok, but any made by diesel and the like are just stupid

    Hahahaha!!!!

    And you're the one who usually hate's the whole rah stereotype :p:


    But yeah - in answer to the original question, the people who wear those are rahs.....rich posh types who have a bizarre fashion sense (pink shirt with collar up and a weird brown wool sweatshirt over that, then random brown cords and some brown leather slip-on shoes. Just pop a couple of rosy red cheeks on them and they're definitely a rah

    *Note: Not all rahs are dislikable. Just most

    Yup :p:

    Unless you were 6 and your mam dressed you (which I think is why rah's do it, they're used to having everything done for them so when they go to uni they get confused and just put on what their "mummy" used to put on them )

    It's because they're a pointless, stupid item of clothing that Rahs can wear and go "look at me, I've got enough money to buy this stupid, pointless piece of clothing, despite the fact that it's stupid and pointless and makes me look like the yellow man depicted on the safety card you get in aeroplanes when flying over to daddy's mountain in Switzerland to ski".

    Ooohhhh those. I'd never wear them, I don't see the point of having no sleeves if it's supposed to keep you warm:confused:

    It's not meant to keep you warm. It's meant to make you look like an annoying git. They serve their purpose well

    I don't hate the rah stereotype, I just hate the stereotype that everyone who goes to Castle or Hatfield is a rah!

    I've found the north face ones on people who actually like climbing/similar outdoor activitys which require you to be able to move your arms freely, rarther than the general rah
