The world of fashion has taken cues from skate culture for decades now, due to the cultural significance of skateboarding, and the nature of the gear itself. Skate clothing has changed dramatically over the years, from the days of baggy pants and tiny wheels in the 90s, to the rise of skinny jeans and handrails in the early 2000s.
Today there has never been a wider selection of skateboard apparel available on the market, catering to a broad range of tastes and preferences. One of the reasons skate clothing is so popular and often imitated by other non-skate designers, is the focus on art, creativity and graphics which is transferred over from the skate products themselves. Nearly every skate brand you can think of has a strong visual identity.
At Black Sheep we carefully select the clothing products we stock, all of which have a connection with skateboarding and skate culture, from legendary streetwear brands like as Stussy, Huf, Volcom, Mighty Healthy, to independent skate hardware brands. We also are proud to offer our own brand Black Sheep apparel, such as our Dickies coach jacket with a reflective back print, and our rugby shirt, both are great for those cold skate sessions.
We stock a range of gear in most sizes including t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, jeans and snapbacks, if you would like to try anything on yourself then you are more than welcome to visit our Manchester store which is fully stocked with all of our online range.
