Current Alien is one of the most dignified legacy brands out there

Social acceptance is overrated, even amongst fellow skaters. I don't even know why I made this account.

People need to start including the date or at least year in the names of their video parts.

Agreed, everyone should be lonely and miserable.

Also I feel like people who complain about slamming in the winter donít actually skate in the winter, slamming in four layers and a thick hoodie is a trillion times easier than slamming in a thin t shirt. If you run it out and take it on the shoulder you literally donít feel it at all if you have a couple hoodies on

oooof, that must have stung. About 8 years ago, I was once pumping gas after shaving my beard into power-burns. I was on some bumfuck country music artist style.

So I'm pumping gas, just doing my thing, and from a couple pumps over I hear this guy say and repeat, "I LOOK GOOD IN MY MUUUTTON CHOOOOPS!"

It wasn't funny at the time, but now it kind of is. I haven't worn chops like that to this day.

I wore Dickies all through high school, but now when I feel that cheap polyester shit, my skin crawls. I don't own any pants and hardly any clothing made from petrochemicals.

Same, my wife turned me off polyester clothes a couple of years ago and now when I'm shopping and looking for t shirts or whatever I can instantly feel when it's a poly/cotton blend. Shit feels so gross.

Super hard to find socks that are 100% cotton though.

I had a similar conversation here the other day but here in SoCal itíll be in the high 40s/low 50s and itís not comfortable to skate in a puffy jacket. Itís a dry cold so you get hot and sweaty really fast. So Iím out in one hoodie or maybe a long sleeve shirt.l, covered in sweat but my hands and feet are cold. If you stop skating you get cold again because youíre covered in sweat. And the sidewalk is still super cold if the suns not out and thatís not fun to slam on.

This may not be what you consider winter but to us it is.

Yeah, elastic is what makes socks actually work. Obviously I make exceptions for things like the elastic waist on my sweatpants, underwear and socks. I do have some 100% wool socks, including several knit pairs knit by my girlfriend, but they're pretty terrible for skating.

Dude right before I sprained my ankle I was dealing with this and I was almost thinking how it was almost just as bad as skating In 30/40 degree NYC

i hate this happened to you, but i cant help but laugh.  i have a very similar experience

i'm 36 now but i guess i had to be like 13.... i'm at the mall on a friday night.  i'm dressed terribly but i think my shit dont stink.  i had on a visor, a basketball jersey, some baggy Caffeine pants and like dad new balances.  i was hanging out with a girl and group of older dudes started laughing at me once they saw me.  "yooo he got on them new New Balances!"  they said other shit but that stuck in my head lol. i was mortified, so now i cant even look at new balances hahaha
