I think adding some clean cut guys actually makes a lot of sense for FA as they reach and surpass their ten year mark as a brand.

I dont know about you guys but I get the sense that the New York cool guy, hyper edgy graphic and videos are getting played out to the point of corniness. By adding Curren and Jake they definitely appeal to people that don't want cocaine dad graphics or whatever FA puts out. Also as a brand ages so does it's consumers, so adding pros that appeal to late 20s early 30s skaters that have money to spend also makes sense.

Itíll be funny if FA is the one to add Jake, Curren instead of Real. Kinda like adding BA and McCrank for Girl. If they steal Mason from Real thatíd be crazy.

I agree with this to an extent but also am confused as to how FA could change its image and re gain a cool/ core brand formula (which I think they lost years ago) - them buying out some top performers as they start selling in Zumiez doesnít really appeal to me as someone in his mid 20s - Iím sure my opinion isnít that different from people 3-10 years older then me.
 It makes them seem rich and washed. Louie worked as an outlier on the team - heís like the one honors student who gets down with the rejects after school or something. If anything I wish FA would focus on being a kind of legends or og team - with hockey having a bunch of more active young rippers. Especially with dill being an old guy now - his generation is filled with ogs that deserve some shine as they get older , instead heís just tryna poach kids and re brand them all as the same shit he dreamed up coked out like 20 years ago

He said that's how it works in an interview: "Anyone who gets on is voted on. Each pro votes yes or no. The whole thing is a democracy and pretty much outta my hands." https://www.thrashermagazine.com/articles/the-search-for-the-perfect-am/
