Title: Torey Pudwill on Lacoste?
Post by: DISTANT RUMOURS on November 20, 2020, 05:30:21 AM
Huge page on the LACOSTE website, so it's official.

A few months ago me and a friend were joking about how long it would take for another "higher end" fashion and/or sports brand like Lacoste/ralph Lauren/Tommy Hilfiger etc. to sign a skateboarder.

Well there's that.

AA has been seen wearing some long sleeve Lacoste polos.
He is way cooler than Pudwill, I could see him wearing Lacoste polos and Cardigans all day.
He would have a waaaay bigger impact on sales than Pudwill (no hate on Pudwill tho)
Somebody is doing an awful job at Lacoste marketing.
Whoever is in charge of this mess should be fired, and they should hire me.

Lucas Puig an obvious choice. Kevin Rodriguez if they were actually searching for clout in the skateboarding/ streetwear world. But Torey fucking red bull flatbrim pudwill? I like the brand, I buy their products, and I'm abysmally let down now

Lacoste isn't high fashion, it started as a rich white people brand. Tennis, golf , sailing sort of french nautica. Original owner was racist too... Can't speak for now but the quality of clothes used to be really high though.

Yep here in France it used to be the polo / shorts combo to wear if you were a rich white guy on vacation in the French Riviera. Then in the 90s and maybe til early 00s it was also a « ghetto » thing. They started to rebrand to be more « fashion » maybe 10 years ago ? Not my taste though

He was getting flowed after Shorty’s and pre Almost... unless I’m missing a board company in there. He has some clips very clearly rocking Alien gear in one of those 411’s that had the little magazine with it.

Come to think of it, it might have been the Mikey Taylor connection at that time (05/06?)

what are some other examples of skaters whose style got worse going from kid to adult?
mike mo comes to mind. his skating in FF is pretty untouchable but his pretty sweet part is disgusting

Good Question. I completely agree. Loved Mike Mo in FF, but his PS part felt like a complete afterthought.

I would probably say Tyshawn. I thought he looked pretty good in Cherry skating the courthouse. But started to look super stiff in Blessed when he became focused on how high he can ollie.

He was getting flowed after Shorty’s and pre Almost... unless I’m missing a board company in there. He has some clips very clearly rocking Alien gear in one of those 411’s that had the little magazine with it.

Come to think of it, it might have been the Mikey Taylor connection at that time (05/06?)

Yeah, DVS/Dill/Mikey connection. I think he's skating nothing but AWS boards in the Jereme Rogers video part. They even took him on some trips, I remember seeing him at a AWS/Habitat demo.

Surprised he didn't try to jump from Matix to Fourstar just so he could wear this shirt.

Mikey taylor and borra on alien proofs that alien was way less of what all of you so desperately want it to have been in retrospect.

It was all downhill once Seek started
