Proper Thought Skateboards have been holding it down in the DMV (Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia) for a minute, and now they’re poised to bring their dope decks and fly threads to you. Proper Thought’s mission is to “revive youth through skateboarding” by serving up affordable and stylish gear and by giving back to the skating community.
Jake and Branden (2/3 of Proper Thought…Creative Director Graham lives in Denver and designs for Grassroots California) with some of their wares at the June RAW Artists showcase at Cafe Asia in Washington, DC.
These east coast cats are bringing their grimey gear to art events and music festivals across the country this summer. They’re also cultivating collabs…so be on the look out for new items featuring art from Jumbie, David Bywater and Jeremiah Allen Welch
The Gatsby’s stick of choice is Trippin City Deck. Gotta have PT tanks in fun color combos to stay cool on the concrete and that fresh hemp snapback (a Collab with Grassroots California) to block those UV rays
Proper Thought’s got somethin’ for the ladies too… peep these V-necks, or get grimey with a
Men’s tee and a pair of scissors. The Gatsby’s favorite graphic? Proper Gonzo, of course!
