expensive type of jacket that yuppy young men and women wear as a way to:
1) make a statement that they're rich.
2) keep very warm, since they're good jackets.

I prefer wearing mine for the second reason, but hey, #1 isn't all that bad...
Holy crap! He's wearing a North Face jacket! I have to go touch him and attain wealth!

The North Face, also known as, the "white man's J's" (Jordan Sneakers), is a company which produces outdoor goods of superior quality. That is undeniable. The North Face brand is often worn by people of all social stratifications to emphasize their wealth, conformity, and feelings of financial superiority; unless worn by actual adventurers or people who truly value the quality of The North Face products.
Hiker: I see that we're both wearing the same North Face fleece and Zippo lighters. I take it you like hiking as well?

Douche: Hold on, someone is calling me on my Blackberry.

(Yes, I know this example was already posted by 'birdandbee', but this is the perfect example describing typical The North Face wearers.)

A line of winter wear that comes in twelve shades of black and is worn by stuck-up college students who feel an overwhelming need to fit in. Most people justify their wearing of The North Face by preaching about how warm the coats are in order to hide the fact that they're most likely a pretentious snob who lacks taste and the ability to impress anyone with originality.
I took the bus to class today and was only one of three people not sporting The North Face.

A ridiculous kind of jacket that will never see the North Face of anything. The jackets cost more than their weight in gold, and are usually worn by every member of the Greek system at all times. Attending a winter greek event may as well be a North Face advertisement. The alleged quality of the jackets is offset by the fact that owning one makes you a douche.
Teacher: Conscientious consumption is the purchase of goods to look rugged or otherwise not ostentatious. Have you of you been conscientious consumers?
Class: No.
Teacher: How many of you own something with the the words "The North Face?"
Class: *defeated*

The other definitions for The North Face are wack... These retarded people have no idea what they are talking about. The North Face is actually an outdoor equipment and apparel company founded in 1968 in San Francisco, CA. Their products are of very high quality, and are well worth the cost. They make backpacks, jackets, shirts, sweatshirts, pants, shoes, tents, sleeping bags, luggage, etc. I guess they are famous for their jackets, which hip-hop stars in the early 90's wore frequently.
Me: "Oh you're mad because you can't afford The North Face products so you go on Urban Dictionary and talk trash about them? Wow your life must suck."

Douchebag: "I know I cry myself to sleep most of the time, damn it's cold out here and my shitty ass backpack I bought at Walmart is falling apart!"

Me: "Harsh man, I'm warm and all the stuff in my backpack is dry, maybe you should invest in some North face ish and get rid of your bootsy gear."

A high-end jacket and mostly ski clothing company. Their jackets are warm and insulating, and most of them have waterproof gore-tex material on the outside or middle layer. They have been known to have high quality, well packaged down feathers in a lot of their coats. I personally have a fleece jacket, a shell, and an insulating jacket with fur. All maintained their quality when I went skiing in the Alps. North Face Rules!!
His North Face jacket is so cool, I even heard that it has down feather insulation. I wish I had a jacket made by the north face!
