What Not to Wear...Maine Mannequin

I warned them.
This is the second time I've gone into Cabela's in Maine and seen perfect examples of what not to wear. This time I took pictures.
I'm wondering if the person who dresses the mannequins in Cabela's is from away and thinks this is the way we dress here, so our mannequins should reflect our actual style, or if he/she is making fun of the way we dress here. Or perhaps they are trying to make us feel good about the way we dress and are encouraging us in our fashion attempts. I'm not sure. Because we do dress this way here. It's just not the fashionable way to dress. But we know it. We just choose to ignore fashion, siding with function and comfort most of the time. Given the need, we could dress up... for the most part, anyway.
We choose to dress this way, but please, not our mannequins. We like our mannequins well dressed, fashionable and trendy...the way life could be - even if we dress...the way life should be.
