LRG was always such a strange brand, imo. Never understood why they were in skating to begin with...especially with people like Billy Marks on their team during the last iteration.

Yeah, I always associated them more with street wear (like Marlo decked out in it in The Wire), and underground hip-hop. Their team always struck me as a bit weird having guys like Marks and Sandoval on it. Although, I'll always love that Jack Curtain part skating to Diamond District. That def fit LRG to a tee.

Yea Marlo wearing LRG was dope, wasn't marlo jamaican in the show? 

I remember watching the LRG skate video at FTC in Japan in 09 and thinking the same about the team, strange mix of styles not associated with underground hip hop or reggae lifestyle


Just baltimore. The actor is of haitian descent. In the show he went to the antilles to check on his off-shore account.

Speaking of Wire fits, the Greek’s crew were fucking dashing I would not be mad if I saw someone ripping in the getup Sergei wears when he punks Cheese.

They jumped the shark when they made the full zip skull hoodie. That was when they crossed over in trying to be a Bape brand. That was also when Krew did a full zip which sold like hot cakes too.
they just brought back the skeleton hoodie as a collab or something with benny the butcher

I still got a mint LRG jacket that was one of their first varsity style looks similar to this without the L and roots people/ and no red gold green.    Have a pair of khaki jeans that still holds up after 11+ yrs and I still wear them

 Sammaria, Aori Nishimura and Margie would also rock LRG very well.

they had a girls line up called LXRY or something for a bit

but yea i agree with everyone that tom asta and marks were a big odd on the team but dudes like chico curtin rodrigo adelmo miles silvas etc made the team well

plus 1947 was an amazing video

Ishod would kill it in their LRG stitched jorts.

I'm being dead serious. Jorts, for some fucking reason, are coming back into fashion. And the ONLY skater that can pull off that look is Ishod.

Forgive my ignorance, but is there a point to/purpose for these hoodies that zip up and down the center? Like I think I saw one where it zips up over the face?!  Benny the Butcher there's hoody looks like it zips down the back? Why?

I've always fucked with LRG, even bought some kits over covid. Some of their shit is great, some of it is ho hum; not much is straight up wack. Found a lot of great items on clearance at Ross. At worst, you're probably just gonna wear something generic from them. They had a cool mixtape CD in the early 2000s. I do still associate Jack Curtain with it.

Edit: kook me if u want, idgaf, i fucks with their tiger-style shit heavy.

100% about interrupt a conversation to try and ask me for a cigarette with that outfit.

I got a button up shirt in 2001 and it had a big inside label that doubled and a stash pocket. always thought it was cool how they snuck little stash spots on garmets. Also the jeans were the shit, had a few pairs circa 2002-3

This take sizzlin

Where’s the “post an LRG fit” thread


LRG vs volcom

Hesh vs fresh

Punk vs gangster

Bape is surely the originator here, no?

is this not just a shitty rip off of the bape hoodies that are already a shitty rip off of the krew hoodies?

Bape was the originator of the full zip hoodie (shark head), then when every rapper was rocking it, every brand then began making full zip hoodies.

Couple or years back the local had a sample sale and they had an LRG orange hoody with a wrap around print of a guy fly fishing. It was amazing. Unfortunately a medium. So my buddy got a great Christmas present.
To those speaking to LRGs quality - I still have a pair of ripstop camo shorts that are going strong from years ago.
