Ask Manolo: Skate Technique in the Closet, Part 2

We tried to be a little funny here on Manolo.se the other day. It was received is not particularly good, so therefore we will now have the same issue-but with an expert who will answer instead.

We turned to Martin Ottoson, founder of both skejttidningen Defect and the news service Skatle. He got to give us some basic information about the skateboard fashion development and also answer the question: what is the skater’s five best contributions to svennegarderoben?
This is not easy to answer. Skateboarding has so many different styles and directions in their world that it is not possible to generalize. I have thought about this and have come to the conclusion that what can be classified as skatekläder are in short clothes that come from a variety of skateboard companies, regardless of whether the company’s main market is boards, trucks, wheels, or shoes.

With the above in mind, I would like to point out, however, that a skater many times DO NOT dress in there skateboardkläder according to my definition. A pair of jeans from any jeans manufacturers are just as good.

If these jeans are baggy or tight, or if they are not at all jeans without chinos (though in all honesty, the chinos …) or even sweatpants are completely irrelevant.

However, what I can say firmly is that I am extremely tired of the exploitation of the skate culture in today’s society where everyone wants to be with and share of the cake and be first with the latest skate fashion. With 19 years of experience, I think also that I have the power to issue such criticisms.

If 15 years ago saw a guy who had skatedojor they began to check on which side they were worn to determine if the person was goofy or regular. If you got close enough it could even happen that we cheered for each other. A bit like a secret Club.

Back to the question: this is impossible to answer. If you asked me what skatarnas main contribution to svennegarderoben of ten-twelve years ago, I would probably have said it was the Puma Clyde, Adidas Gazelle, Campus Superstar and baggy pants with hang. Today I do not know.
