name one piece of skate clothing you wish you never lost
« on: September 18, 2023, 10:13:16 AM »
I had a grey Focus Skate Mag that had the name and "east coast skateboarding culture" under it, it was sick, think I lost it when I was 15. Took a family photo in it though so I guess it's not gone forever in a way.

I generally don’t hold on to very much, but I kept most of my old skate t-shirts and stored them at my mom’s. A few years ago, there was a fire at her condo complex and all my clothes were destroyed. Among the lost were my Foundation skateboards hoodie, Consolidated t-shirt, and my old Bones Brigade jacket.

I had this Analog dylan. pocket t-shirt that was made of super nice, soft thin cotton that was off-white/light grey and had a little razor above the pocket. I got it for super cheap from my old now defunct local because one of the team riders was sponsored by Analog and would drop off stuff for them to sell. I wore that thing so much over the years that it eventually tore to shreds and I think my mom tossed it out once I moved out for college. I think I wore it on my first date with my highschool gf lol. One of my favorite shirts of all time :')

all my old birdhouse and hook-ups shirts from 2000-2003.
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

I had this Toy Machine shirt when I was a kid.I wore so much the arm pits just blew out, the color came undone, and was so full of holes. My mom cut the monster graphic off the shirt and sewed it into a mesh trucker hat out of my dads closet. I wish I knew where that thing was, I’d still be wearing it today.

I had this Volcom cap that had a mummy on the patch doing a nose wheelie - with the text "Drop In, Tune Out". Fit perfectly, nice materials....

Must have left/dropped it at the bus stop and I'm still bummed on it
Wow sorry, didn't realise I was dealing with a sick cunt here

I had two striped long sleeved fuct shirts that looked like 70’s style Hang Ten shirts.

I gave them to a girl who I ended up cheating on soon after with a couple of her promiscuous friends.

I drank too much Colt45 in my twenties with nothing more than hot fries in my stomach. So many mistakes.

I had an Alphanumeric hoodie back in 1998 (8th grade). Put it in my PE locker (we didn't have regular hallway lockers) and locked it up during PE class. Came back and found my lock smashed, locker open, my hoodie and Willy Santos Vans missing.

I washed hella cars and did hella oddball jobs to afford those things. Gone in a swoop. Wore my beat up PE shoes and went chilly the rest of the school day.

My first skate shirt - 100% Flip with all their heads in a bottle (Andy Scott era) like an Absolute Vodka shirt.    Not for the design, but just because it was the first and a friend gifted it to me

Heather gray Tom’s friends graphic shirt… some one off local shop shirts as well. I can’t think of anything too too sick that I let go of. Maybe my Theories Jeru shirt?

Emerica ‘Burnside’ brushed denim cargos. Made in the US.
Super soft yet burly, perfect drape on the legs and taper at the ankle.

I can't remember who from Slap (magazine or forum) that sent me 2 t-shirts in the late 2000s back before international shipping was commonplace, they're were both heavily washed and shrank to an XS. Tossed them out in the 2010s when I wasn't skating, now I'm back and missing all my old skate memorabilia.

Huf triangle hat like Dylan used to wear but green, was the only color I could find on eBay, made in USA. Best fitting hat I ever had, still chasing the dragon. Wore it with the straps glued, even with staples haha. I think my ex threw it away. Bought like 3 more once huf became big and they were nothing like the first one.

Miss my 411VM and Innes shirts lol.

Also classic grey Emerica pullover but I could probably buy the exact same design from their website if I cared.

The UK had a skate shop named Mischief that opened in 1996, when we finally got a park in our town (2010) one of the main designers was kinda associated with that shop and when the park itself opened they ended up bringing some gear from the shop, mostly store DVD's but a couple tees too which I managed to grab one of. Ended up losing it not long after and the store owner passed away in 2011, rip Bingo. Been a couple events/memorial jams since and managed to grab some Wu inspired tees which I'll be keeping forever.

My DC Court Graffiks. Those were beast, best looking skate shoe ever. Just wish the outsole wasn't as weak as it was, it blew out pretty fast. (Not really lost but since I retired it I guess you could call it "lost".)

I went to the Tum Yeto tour demo and brought a plain white tee to get signed.  I handed it to Brian Anderson and he drew a monster on the chest and signed his name.  Wore that the rest of high school until it had nearly disintergrated.

Also had a grey Enjoi Panda zip-up hoodie that I let my girlfriend wear one day.  She broke up with me after that and I remember leaving her voice mails every day for a week asking for my hoodie back.  Never saw it again :-(

When I was 15 the Enjoi team came to our skatepark before they had even run their first ads. Louie gave me a dark brown tweed hat that looked like a cycling cap with a super short bill on it and it had the panda logo on the back. I held onto that thing through HS and when I was moving to college it magically "disappeared" from my boxes. It is still a point of contention between myself and my Mom, who hated the hat, and was very vocal about hating the way I dressed. I still believe she threw it away cuz she was super worried about the impression I would make on others.

Sean sheffey Buffalo robe by girl. Got it years ago so let's say 98. I still have the swing tags in my sticker box. Loved it. Never knew what happened to it.

My brown forties beanie. Lasted way longer than the company and looked brand new even after excessive wear. I never had anything else from this brand but if the beanie is an indicator for the quality it was top notch stuff.

I had a grey felt enjoi "boy genius" hat very similar to the one you describe that magically disappeared as well... Really a shame.

I had a Krooked logo shirt from like the original run whose disappearance still haunts me to this day, can't for the life of me figure out where that one went (although I may have left it in the locker room in high school).

All of my old blueprint shirts as well (WFTW - L&F era), although I still have one, I originally had like 5.
