These days, the skateboarding scene is where to look for all the latest style, trends, and — in Reese LaFlare's case — the best music.

LaFlare is an Atlanta-based rapper and a diehard skater. When he’s not in the studio cutting new tracks like “Lil Skate for President” or recording with artists like Pusha T and Ty Dolla $ign, he’s rolling wherever the wind takes him and his crew, Olan and Kevin.

Recently, LaFlare and his squad hit the California coastline to soak up some sun and grind it out across Venice Beach and a couple must-try skate parks. When you’re shredding it in the park, comfort is key, and Reese is proof that you don’t have to sacrifice style for performance.

That philosophy explains why lately, you’ll find LaFlare and his crew rocking American Eagle from head to toe. Their go-to pieces include on-point baseball caps that stay on while keeping the sun at bay, tees that go with everything, and jeans that are comfortable and flexible enough to jump into a few board slides with ease. With Reese, Kevin, and Olan’s stamp of approval, it’s safe to say that the latest AE collection is a must-shop.
