    Default Spin of Spin: The Tacky of the Future

    OK, people, time to move on to prognostication:

    Of the stuff around now, what will be the Tacky of the future?

    The 2010 version of petal bell boots.

    The 2010 version of purple and teal.

    ETA: And to make this fun, you need to lay some virtual money on the virtual table. Think of your bet as indicating your measure of confidence.

    It's hard to say. But I will put an expensive steak dinner on those baboon-butt patched full seat breeches.

    Those block-colored Joules polo shirts with numbers on them. Hideous! I can't believe people actually buy them. I hope no one shows in them but I fear they do.

    I like petal bell boots.

    Riding "tights". Unless you are eight, those just. should. not. be worn in public. Mvp, I'd see your steak dinner and raise you a nice bottle of Malbec, but I have to say, you beat me to it on the baboon pants. Ick. I sure hope they are comfortable because they certainly aren't flattering on anyone.
    Please don't sabotash my conchess.

    Tights and baboon pants were high on my list, too... so I'll see the steak & Malbec and raise you both an after dinner Remy Louis X11 or L'Esprit de Courvoisier, as you prefer.

    To that, I will add the plethora of plastic boots that seem to have replaced the traditional leather open fronts and ankles due to people's laziness with respect to cleaning tack. Not at all unlike petal boots, ugh.

    What will be tacky in the future is the riding jacket you bought last year. Which is why I only buy a riding jacket that is very dark brown, conservative, no pinstripes, no contrasting lining, no NOTHING. Plain. And I don't care. Bite me.

    THANK YOU!
    I can't handle the baboon butt.
    Not many other people have agreed with me when I have mentioned it in the past.

    Those gawd-awful Nike and Tretorn tall boots. And why stop at magnetic stirrups? We could scoff at bascule and have magnetic saddles. That way the baboon butt riding tights could have a purpose if they made those cheeks magnetic. Although, posting would be interesting, so lets all just perch from 2010 on.....

    Those boots are tacky already

    Colored linings in hunt coats. I can't afford to raise y'all steak and wine, so how's Chipotle?

    Wait a sec. You can't *raise me* while betting on the same thing-- the baboon butts.

    Now, I do think you are right about the plastic boots. At home, sure. Heck, use your Ulsters if you want to.

    At a non-muddy show?

    What were you thinking?

    And what were you thinking by using something other than the traditional dark baghide and thin fleece version Beval used to make?

    I still have mine. I rarely use them. That's my insurance against future tackiness.

    Mmm. Chipotle. I do wonder how long it will take for loud colored linings to go away. That's because I dig 'em now. But then I also had teal chaps....

    See this is the point of the thread. Crap you like... and yet could be wrong about because you had, after all, liked crap in the past.

    But again to the "sure thing." I'll bet you a tank of diesel that those Guernini boots-- you remember those baroque and *too short* tall boots-- have a shelf life of 3 years or less.

    The new sweaters by Joules (I think) they look like something off a clown in the 80's. Particularly the one with one blue cuff and one red cuff as well as multi colored buttons. Seriously some things should be left in the 80's.

    But people will by them...because they are by Joules

    Although I love this one!

    http://www.doversaddlery.com/joules-...20948/cn/4607/

    The other is the Newmark shirts...because I want to dress just like my horse...

    I can't raise anything...I'm poor!

    I can't imagine putting this on my horse. The Joules blanket and turnout sheet.

    Now this is tacky: http://www.doversaddlery.com/product...&ids=141469990

    Are we allowed to vote for things we'd like to see gone? Because, after all, if it doesn't match my taste it needs to be gone.

    Hunt coats with piping and shiny metal buttons. In an eq final. One can only hope. I've lived through the era of velvet collars and seen that fade so perhaps these will die a similar death.

    Padded bridles, though they do help to minimize a grande head. I get flashbacks to the white-lined dressage bridles of yore.

    Extremely blingy belts for the simple reason that belt fashions seem to come and go.

    Fake tails in the style of QH congress. Please.

    Will confess to showing eq/o in plastic EquiFit boots at a county-level show. The other option was a set of extremely fuzzy boots that I bought, sheep-like, when I went back to showing o/f. It really bothered me, tho, and I recently purchased a set of leather thinline boots after hauling the other ones off to the tack resale store. I don't even like the leather ones with elastic straps that are some color besides brown.

    I will bet an order of tortilla soup and a bowl of taco chips with excellent salsa and the Mexican joint around the corner.

    I bet in just a few years the show shirts with patterned cuffs/collar will be considered tacky. Or maybe they are now and I'm the tacky one. I'm hoping that in the future it will be super tacky to have your hair in a ponytail hanging out of your helmet. While I think that is tacky now, lots of people seem not to think so

    Although these gals are extremely built well - these things "DO" need to go! (just agreeing with you)

    Super slow hunter rounds. It's not western pleasure let's let the ponies actually reach the fences at a decent pace.

    Okay someone needs to bring the veggies - or should I raise you a bottle of Cakebread - - Now this thread is making me hungry OR since I don't want to cook, how about going to Mortons..... (not that I'm confident in my choice - but I just like the place)


    The Kensington checkered stuff in pink, purple and neon green.... However Baker blankets did stay in fashion to this day. I had one in the 80's and hated it because all the shavings stuck to it.

    For-looks-only martingales.

    I would bet some seriously authentic Mexican food, as I am too poor to bet anything else.

    I love my joules pullover! It's cream colored with small multi-colored polka dots, pink striped collar and sleeves, and blue piping. I got it half off, and it feels snuggly and warm when it's chilly out.

    I really hate the GPA speed airs, they just look weird with traditional hunter stuff. When it comes to hunters I like the traditional look. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1638434559 excuse the sketchy position, the pic is old

    Now, my eventing gear is COVERED in bling. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1638434559
