Scumbag Clothing company:

Names jacket after deadly narcotic/thinks they're being clever

Responded on

It's called appealing to their target market which is snowboarders ages 15-25. Most snowboarders in that age range typically do drugs, so naming a jacket after the drugs they like is actually very clever because it will sell and they will make $money$, even though everyone doesnt see it as "right" their target market likes it and buys it. The bottom line is every company has their own identity and brand, and drugs and partying are very much a part of the Special Blend brand because that what the majority of the young snowboarding community is about, riding all day, partying all night, repeat all winter. I love special blend for that reason and so do a lot of other kids my age which is why they are so successful and one of the biggest brands in snowboarding. If you don't like it then stop hating and go buy some non-offensive brands like north face and patagonia, most of their stuff is very bland and boring, which probaly appeals to you, but they still work great keep you warm and dry.
