We wanted to focus on creating a capsule that represented the overlapping DNA of each brand—a raw, energetic, DIY mentality. Skateboarding is more than just something you do; it’s a culture, a mindset, a way of life. 40s & Shorties shares this outlook, and so it was only natural for us to collab with DC.”
