You don't have to be a skateboarder to like the Levi's skateboard collection










Skateboarding has never really been our thing at Umbrella.

Coming from cities with strong football/music associations, the pull of the windswept terrace or warehouse party was always stronger than the halfpipe. But our relative ignorance of skating shouldn't cloud the fact it's had a uniformly positive influence on street culture, especially fashion. It's also given lads who were rubbish at footy another route into being cool.

While the super-baggy look of mid-’80s skatewear was never our thing, the more recent skate/preppy/workwear crossover – as epitomised by Carhartt – has drawn us closer to the skate park quicker than you can say, "Actually, those slip-on Vans look amazing."

Levi's' new skateboarding range epitomises this perfectly. Its new season collection is stuffed with beautifully made jogging pants, sweatshirts and denim jackets. The mix of fabrics, coupled with the tailored cuts of the outerwear, really does look the business. And the range's hooded top is something that anyone with an interest in casual fashion should be getting their hands on. 

So, whether you're a hardcore skater or just someone who plays Tony Hawk when you're boared of FIFA, this is a collection everyone can all roll with.
