The Quiet Life
Note To Self
Reading through interviews with Jason Dill, you get an insight into how a brand like FUCKING AWESOME and Dill keep the hard edge and originality to the industry.
Nothing about it fits the expected mould. Why should it - wasn't the reason we got into all this because of how abrasive it is (or atleast was)?
New tshirts, hooded sweats, hats and also boards are in store, with a few more pieces to come real soon (Chloe boards).
We are also able to take phone and email orders, so feel free to get in touch. Postage anywhere in Australia is free.
"I make it for sale but at the same time I don’t want you to have it. It’s a bit of a personality disorder company." - Jason Dill.
Out of NYC, and with strong history and cultural relevance, is a selection of the latest from DQM, now in store.
After opening the first 'Dave's Quality Meats' in Manhattan’s Bowery district,
a site of counterculture since the 1950s, home to CBGBs, the beatniks and punk rock, DQM was a small store now turned fully fledged brand.
The brand has its history built on culture and relationships that began long before the store was conceived.
Continuing to push the envelope for a new board and bike generation, we are proud to present DQM to Adelaide.
This range includes detailed button down Shirts, a new range of Headwear and Tshirts, plus a limited amount of the Denim Coaches Jacket.
Melbourne based heads, CRAWLING DEATH, present another response to the played out masses.
The original headwear has been topped up, with the addition of a new hat, politely titled - 'Fuck Off'.
You won't find them anywhere else in ADL, and if you need to you can hit us up on the EMAIL or by phone to sort an order out.
Uncompromising shit for free-thinkers.
Select Winter pieces and headwear from POLAR, are on the racks.
From the mind of Pontus Alv, Polar is presenting the connection between art, creativity and positive skateboarding, and focusing on a better quality end product.
The support for the underdog independents is growing rapidly.
Read THIS INTERVIEW by Jenkem Mag with Pontus Alv, and you'll understand why.
Inspire others to inspire themselves.
Winter weather is settling in and BUTTER GOODS, out of Perth, have released their Winter 2014 range.
One of the few brands from Australia looking to push progress, both creatively and with a better quality product.
As long-time supporters of Butter, the new addition of cut and sew products to their growing ranges is refreshing to see.
Heavier weight Jackets like the nylon shell Anorak and a tartan lined, heavy twill Jacket, plus hooded sweats and a fresh range of tshirts and hats are available in store.
If you keep up to date with a select group of creatives from this fine land, you may have come across the one they call RAT BRAIN (instagram: @ratbrainer).
You might not get much from that aside from him possibly being friends with our fellow mates at Doomsday in Melbourne.
His identity remains a myth shrouded in a purple haze - these are the RAT BRAIN BOOTLEG tshirts, and we have a small amount of them at the store.
Never to be seen again.
Collect them all.
Your friendly local company, PASS~PORT have released the second delivery for Range No.12.
The new wood has arrived in full, with artwork contributors Marcus Dixon, Sydney based tattoo guru William P. Brown, and the amazing Nadia Hernandez.
Pass-Port has chiseled its own original path, refreshingly relevant for an Australian brand, not caught up in the past.
The rest of delivery No. 2 includes an embroided coaches jacket, tshirt and deck in collaboration with Dan Kircher's SKYLARKING video of a few years ago, and the Portals print on a pullover hood.
Photographer Richard Gilligan has compiled an archive of images focused solely on 'homemade' or DIY skateparks.
The Irish photographer and skateboarder spent four years traveling through Europe and the US, resulting in photographs that are not your run-of-the-mill action shots.
Instead, Gilligan chooses to focus on the sport’s “negative space”: the out-of-the-way concrete embankments, nondescript suburban lots where kids come to practice.
The images offer a grittily beautiful tribute to the ineffable hunger that unites us all —young, old, rich, poor.
Gilligan's photographs represent more than a quest for glory, but a means of self- expression.
Limited copies of the book are in store.
1977 was when the VANS OLD SKOOL debuted, then known as the "Style 36".
Showcasing the iconic Vans 'sidestripe', originally referred to as the "jazz stripe", it has become the unmistakable hallmark of the Vans brand.
Collaborations became a major part of representing a brand that has always thrived on the creativity and dedication of artists.
A look through the Vans history of collaborators features the likes of Supreme, A.P.C, bands like Slayer and the Descendents, and through it's Syndicate range, working with iconic figures, like Neil Blender and Jason Dill.
It's cultural significance is impossible to deny.
Available now in store.
Our first drop for this year from outdoor nomads, POLER has landed in store, with a full range of backpacks, duffle bags, Napsacks and accessories.
