Introducing 'Dear Skating'
Arriving this week at Flatspot is a new label that you might feel like you've kinda seen before...
Dear Skating pays tribute to some iconic moments from skate videos so you can re-live the glory days with heritage throwbacks. They areÂ putting out limited runs of T-Shirts like the "Israel" shirt Mark Gonzales wore in Blind's "Video Days" and SMA Rocco Division T-Shirts team riders wore in the early days of the brand that would be later known simply as World Industries.Â Dear SkatingÂ have utilised a special ageing wash process that makes the shirts feel like they are twenty years old, again part of the whole concept.Â
Chris LipomiÂ from Dear explained recently to The Skateboard Mag a little about the projectÂ he started.
âThe skateboarding I grew up in with wasÂ a subculture. A physical activity sure, and thoughÂ my days werenât filled with simply learning tricksÂ and pushing from point A to A, they were full.Â They were filled with the adventure, experiences,Â music, friends, bums, and enjoyment that wentÂ along with being a skateboarder. A different wayÂ to see and move through the world, a secret thatÂ we shared, a perspective that was unique and ourÂ own. As skateboarding has continued to changeÂ and grow over the years I have continually foundÂ myself gravitating toward aspects and pockets ofÂ it that retained the charm and magic that initiallyÂ drew me in.âÂ
Landing soon in the shop, you can view the Dear Instagram feed below for some highlights.
