. Second coming or retro look opinion is irrelevent to my question and yes I do want to look cool because I believe I have a cool bike.
Boxerworks is a site famous for thread degradation. You will experience our artistic dabbling here. It's what we do, and what we have done for decades. :ugeek:

Anything pretentious is that. . . Trying to look cool.... isn't. IMO
Pretending for the moment that traditional western riding gear and mountain biking gear are roughly functionally equivalent, I would choose the traditional riding gear in a sense to acknowledge a bygone place and time. Also to 'feel' that place and time; not necessarily out of homage, but to acquire the experience for myself.

Why would you want to "pretend" that traditional western riding gear and mountain biking gear are roughly functionally equivalent? That makes no sense. Those are very different activities with different requirements.
It was an analogy. I was actually stipulating that they are different so that I could make my point.

Analogy:
a comparison between two things, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification.

I did not find your comparison analogous. :ugeek:

I suggest that all of those 'trying to look cool' aren't necessarily trying to look cool. For example, if I were invited to go horseback riding in the mountains I would likely choose to wear western gear in lieu of, say, modern mountain biking gear. Why? Pretending for the moment that traditional western riding gear and mountain biking gear are roughly functionally equivalent, I would choose the traditional riding gear in a sense to acknowledge a bygone place and time. Also to 'feel' that place and time; not necessarily out of homage, but to acquire the experience for myself.

LaDonna ought me 3 new western shirts at Atwoods today so I guess I'll be cool now.

Coolness is mystifying. You either have it or you don't. Having it isn't entirely straightforward either. Being cool means breaking the rules, but only so much. so my coolness will be breaking the rules and wear vintage but yet functional clothing on my classic and very cool bike.

I purposely ignore coolness.

Smoking cigarettes is cool.
Smoking Light cigarettes is being cool with the proper protection.
