First off I’d like to say a huge THANK YOU! To all of you who have continued to check the blog, and also a big sorry for not keeping it updated! I’ve prepared a few posts that will be published throughout the next couple days, rather than jumble everything into one massive one… but pretty much, life has been hectic! I’ve been busy enjoying the sewing part of PJS much more than the blog updating part as of recent. However, that was during my time in Whistler, and as you will soon realize I’ve taken a hiatus from Whistler for the time being, and a spark has been lit once again to keep this awesome blog thriving.
First things first, the water-resistant hoodies! If you’ve been keeping up to date via the Facebook page or Instagram feed than you will surely already know that these suckers turned out TOTALLY AWESOME! I am so grateful to all of you who ordered from that first batch, showing faith in what was a bit of an experiment at the time. The fabric is very different from cotton, but it’s lots of fun to work with and is quite durable as well. I’ve got to give a shout out to the guys in the Furtune Freestyle Club; a bunch of the members Pat Boucher coaches were all down to order hoodies, thanks for the love guys!
Heres a look at how the Water Resistant hoodies turned out!

With the winter season in full swing, and 2013 on calendars everywhere, PJS is coming close to the 5th anniversary of our first ever hoodie. We want to make this a special one, and give a big thank you to everyone who has supported us so far! So to get things rolling in 2013 we found some water-resistant fabric that we really want to start using, and we just need to know what designs you guys want made out of the new fabric. Same deal as always, hoodies are fully customizable, only you’ll have some set colours to pick from (check out the bottom of this post to see what you’ve got to work with.)
How the water-resistant hoodies are going to work:
- Price $110.00 + shipping
- Orders will be taken for one week, deposits of $60.00 will be required no later than Feb.8th to confirm orders.
- Once your deposit has been paid final decisions can be discussed for the design of your hoodie, size will be confirmed, and sewing will begin.
- Wait times: Hoodies should take roughly 2-6 weeks, put your order in quickly, because the hoodies will be finished in the same order we receive deposits!

Hey everybody! Summer is here, college has finished, and I am finally focusing most of my time on Purplejumpsuit Apparel! Happy days. I just wanted to inform everyone that a new style of hoodie is available. A reglan sleeve, for those who don’t know this means the sleeve connects to the neck, rather than connecting at the shoulders to the main body pieces. Check below for some pictures! An acid wash style is also new! Which you can see below. Another fun option to spice up your wardrobe.
Well, hello everyone. Thank you to the people who have still been viewing the blog in hopes of something new, you guys got me really stoked! Unfortunately most of the summer I didn’t have much time for anything PJS related, and therefore nothing to post about… However, I am now back in Nelson to wrap up my final semester of school at Selkirk, and hopefully will be spending the majority of my free time sewing and crocheting! Not to mention it’s getting to that point where skiing is on my mind a great deal and everyone in my class keeps mentioning snow.
It’s an understatement to say I’m upset about my lack of focus towards PJS for the past three months, however I have been planning, and hoping, and planning ways to focus more time towards PJS this season. Part of being so busy this summer was getting myself enough money for the semester so I wont need to work during school. Hopefully I’ve succeeded in that, but I guess we’ll know for sure when the time is over. That being said, it means I really will have the spare time to sew, crochet, and sew some more.
I hadn’t been a complete slacker this summer, I even have some pictures of products! Orders done at the start of the summer to perhaps give ideas to others, and tuques for those who have as large of an obsession as I do.
Products are officially available now on the Purplejumpsuit Etsy page (located here)! One hoodie is up for viewing so far, and some tuques are going up soon. There is also a new product page on the blog, located at the top with all the Riders pages and the About page, and to the right with the About page to the right of all normal posts. If anyone is interested in some products but cannot order from etsy, no need to worry, you can email me at Danko_Skiing@hotmail.com and it can all be sorted out.
The blogs product page will be updated frequently along with the etsy page. Pictures and a short description will be put with every available item on the blog, and also on etsy.
It’s all getting more organized! this is exciting. I’m off for now,
I’ve gotten a ton of orders recently for hoodies (so stoked about it!) and just finished up another two in the past two days. This morning I got some pictures of the bunch I have in my house and I figure it would be a good idea to post them in the blog as well as on the facebook page.
In this post is also an edit, pat was messing around with some footage of the late season and had the idea to challenge a friend of his to a little contest, (to my knowledge Brett, his friend, was bored and enjoys editing) he would send Brett all the clips and I would then post the winning edit in the blog, (winner decided by me). However first, here are some hoodies.

This hoodie is Graeme’s, he wanted to have a hidden velcro pocket in it so I did my best! Think it turned out well if I do say so myself.

So there is a product update, I think in the next one I’ll get some decent pictures of tuques to post.
Now here is the late season edit from Mt.Wash, pat was the winner of their little contest.
So again I failed at posting a blog post soon after the last one, my apologies. I have a bit of advice for everyone, if you ever think of getting your wisdom teeth taken out but don’t actually need to, then DON’T GET THEM OUT! worst week and a half of my life, still dealing with a messed up jaw now.
I’ve heard its spring like weather in other places around North America, but I’ve seen no signs of spring here. We only have three weekends left at Mt.Washington and its been dumping like crazy still. Saturday we had about 25″ of fresh after Friday was a slightly scary storm with a traffic jam at the top of the hill for three hours and only one lift running on and off because of high winds. Sunday had similar weather, with two lifts running and thankfully no traffic jam. Must say I love the powder but I would really love to have a goggle tan right now!
Pat was MIA at mt.washington this weekend, he was up at Silverstar helping coaching for a freestyle comp there. I’m sure it was a lovely trip, and hopefully they had some nice weather!
Zach has still been traveling around doing a ton of comps. He was down at Targhee a little while ago where he got second in the first two runs, then first in the third, finishing second over all. Something to be very stoked about! The weekend after he was at another state comp in AK where he won again. Kids just kicking ass!
Now that the season is coming to an end, iv been thinking a lot about what PJS will be up to for the summer and what should be happening next season. I plan on making a handful of hoodies this summer in several different designs and many different colors, also the same for tuques! This should result in some lower prices for the already made stuff, and same prices for custom order gear! I also recently got a bunch more dyes so more range of color in the tie dyes!
Here are some pictures of some more hoodies.

Hope everyone’s season has been a blast, and if anyone is in whistler for Telus Fest maybe ill see you there!
So you’ve met Pat, Martin and Matt, but I have failed to introduce myself, the creator of Purplejumpsuit apparel. My name is Annie Danko and im the one that makes all the PJS stuff. That being said, you probably don’t know what any of that stuff looks like! So here are some of the latest PJS products.
This hoodie was just finished, it is the second PJS Tie Dye hoodie done.

A little while ago a request for a zebra hoodie was put in, this is the happy customers after she got a hold of it.
she was stoked
So there is a little look at the PJS hoodies. They are a new product but people seem stoked on them! I’m also stoked to make them, a fun change from tuques. However tuques are still great to make, and iv had fun figuring out new designs all the time. Here is a look at some different styles.
most recent design
the ever popular Rasta stripes
some very thin stripes
some sag going on, with thicker stripes then above
PJS has plenty more tuque styles, and has made a few more hoodie styles, however its late and sleep is calling, so that is a look at some of the products.
