Skate style


It's my oldest sons eighth birthday at the end of this month. He is besotted with skating and would do it every second of the day if he could. Dad is a skater and stands by the quote "most male fashion trends are started by skaters". I wasn't too sure about this comment, but since being exposed to skating in video, magazines, film and on the street, I have noticed there are a lot of stylish skaters.

Makr has designed a the luxury skate deck above. It's custom shaped, hand stained and cleared, and features leather risers. Each deck is individually numbered to insure you get a one of a kind piece, they're beautiful. 

Man About Town shot a a conceptually brilliant fashion video featuring Kilian Martin, one of the worlds best freestyle skaters. The music (Tommy Edwards classic tune “It’s All in the Game”), the fashion (Cerruti, Dior Homme, Giorgio Armani) and the skating, just makes me wonder if my husband is a little bit right...
