maybe this is a dorky question, but does anyone know of some good shallow beanies? i've been rocking that dockworker look for a while now, but my current hat of choice is getting pretty stretched out and i don't know where to find another. pls help!

Washing it hasn't shrunk it down??
i've never washed it

That might be your problem. From my experience in washing my own beanies, it'll go back to it's original form, at least close to it, if you wash it.
ah, i see. thanks for the tip!

Just bring it in the shower once in a while, same way as cleaning hats

Not necessarily bought but I was gifted these and I'm fucking picky and can't skate shoes this bright, anyone know how I can make this egg-shell white color black without the grittyness of spraypaint-to-suede?

this, or black leather dye if you want to get really fancy.
Look I'm not selling anything that doesn't have my jizz on it. I don't care how much is offered.

Try a Prize Fighter set. For me they are the best.

Autobahn. When it comes to wheels it's all personal preference really, but you can't go wrong with the other suggestions either; SML or Prize Fighter.

And just saw you asked about the Modus bearings on the last page...they're really good! Bones Swiss are always my go to, but no complaints at all on the Modus. Again, just bought them on a whim based on the Syl Tognelli edit. They're similar to Hard Luck 'Ceramics'. Same price too.

5.5 sounds perfect thinking of sizing down to an 8, i like wider trucks.

Formula 4's are over full price. They're like $35-$38!!! Heard they're more than worth it though.
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

There's quite a few reasons to get them and solid reviews from posters in the thread dedicated to F4s, but i'll add this here, i checked yesterday how long i've had my current set on and it just hit a year, by far the longest length of time a set of wheels have lasted, i can't recommend anything else

Black marker or black fabric marker.

this, or black leather dye if you want to get really fancy.
Or you can use a brush or pipette to apply ink. most inks will work e.g indian, graffiti and pilot.
you can also use fabric dye.

Finally bought the Brian Lotti Atlas shop board on the left, going into the collection. Beautiful artwork as per usual and the 35MM book that came along with it is a nice surprise.  Skating the Green Apple shop board since they're always top quality.
