/ Troll Jesters
Mine were purple and pink and once earned me the compliment "you have the loudest trousers I have ever seen".....
Those were the days eh ?
You can still get troll omnis, but they only do plain colours these days, no patterns. I have some bright purple and some red.
I once took girl I met on a date day out wearing canary yellow trousers..... AND still got laid.
I had so many pairs, and I used to wear them pretty much all the time, not just for climbing. Poodle-perm, stonewash jacket, Van Halen shirt and the loudest jesters I could find under me bullet belt. Them were the days...
I'm sure you can probably still get them in caving shops...
I've seen a few people wandering round the Dales in them in recent months. Perhaps there's a thriving second-hand market for them.
Glad UKC can be relied upon for a reply to even the most unexpected posts !
I emailed Troll today to see if they had any plans to restart production of Jesters. I'll post any reply I get.
And there was me thinking this subject would be about trolls moaning about voting.
Don't think I've ever seen a pair.
Being maybe of the wrong generation, I don't know what these looked like, but the chat here makes me think they were quite something! ANyone got pics of them? I tried googling them, but didn't come up with anything that looked likely
oooh! I think I'm going to have to get some of those, every time I look at them I hear "pour some sugar on me" playing in the background. My hair is growing and curling as I browse...shame they haven't got a UK distributor.
I have a pair of those, but hadn't seen them in the shops recently so assumed they had stopped.
I was thinking of phoning troll up and asking if they would make me a pair with each panel in a different colour.
Yes, but I'm not sure I want to be posting pictures of myself in baggy purple Trolls anywhere on the internet :-)

I have no such qualms.

Patterned troll & santa suit:
I would buy them if they were made available again.
crappy pic, but I had to rephotograph it.....
The 'dolly mixture' pattern as they were referred to in my house in the late 80s!
I actually think I might still have them hidden in the loft...
