The Bones Brigade
The argument can be made that no group had a larger impact on modern streetwear than Stacey Peralta’s skate team from the 1980s… The Bones Brigade. Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk were the standout skaters, in a group that dominated the comps and the mags for more than a decade.
At that time skating was widely recognized as a punishable crime and the graphics that went into designing their decks, stickers, posters, and apparel expressed their outcast rebel culture and remain a benchmark for modern streetwear lines.
We’re looking forward to Stacey Peralta’s upcoming documentary on the subject. The Bones Brigade picks up right where Dog Town and Z Boys leaves off and if this documentary proves half the film that Dog Town was, it’s sure to be an instant Classic. Check out a sneak peak!
