Frightening or Fashionable: You Be the Judge!

Supposedly, "goggle jackets" are the latest thing in the UK. (Though the minute newspapers pick up on these things, the trends are usually over.) They're jackets or hoodies that zip up all the way over the head. Goggles sewn into the fabric allow the wearer to see where he or she's going.

A lot of people think these garments are intimidating. Others find them functional. I think they might be great if you're riding your bike in the rain, but not so great if you're making a deposit at the bank. Any thoughts?

Not frightening, not fashionable. Just very very ugly.

I say frightening AND fashionable. They DO look kind of what a bank robber would wear though...

Frightening! It makes them look like swamp creatures/hoodlums. I mean, I like the jacket itself - just not the zip-up-all-the-way-to-the-top thing.

And it would be incredibly difficult to put on. More so than a wetsuit!

Wow....yes I have seen someone in one of those. He sort of was suddenly behind me and it almost made me jump 50 feet. Very disturbing actually.

That would most definitely be a fun novelty item to have, but when would you wear it?

Like the glowing cats, I have also read about the same thing being done to fish.
