Diamond Supply Co. and Thrasher Magazine get respect from true skaters because both have been laying it down for years and have never looked away from the culture that helped put them on. Diamond is making news by becoming one of the biggest streetwear labels, but its collaboration with Thrasher on a T-shirt and hoodie is for those who love to skate pools, rage, and want to wear something for Halloween that doesn't suck.
Even though Diamond is now located in Los Angeles, brand founder Nick Tershay's roots are in San Fransisco skate culture, the same place Thrasher calls home. This connection is represented through the clothes that have a pool-skating skeleton who's holding a mining tool, made famous by the San Francisco Gold Rush on 1849. There's just something about a skeleton skating a pool that screams, "Halloween," to us.
The tee ($38) and hoodie ($88) just released on Diamond's website, so instead of going to the local costume store and buying a lame mask, cop one of these pieces instead. You'll wear it even after the candy is gone.
