One of the designers behind the Dockers Alpha Khaki wanted to see how they would hold up against a day of skating in San Francisco. The video above is what he came back with.

I personally wear these pants all the time. They’re as durable as denim, breath well and fit great. Recommended.

The Devil’s Toy – Skateboarding in Montreal, 1966

“This short 1966 documentary dedicated “to all victims of intolerance” depicts the dawn of skateboarding in Montreal. A new activity frowned upon by police and adults, skateboarding gave youngsters a thrilling sensation of speed and freedom. This film – the first Canadian documentary ever made about the sport – captures the exuberance of boys and girls having the time of their lives in free-wheeling downhill locomotion.” -NFB

Tyler, The Creator is one of the most exciting things happening in hip-hop today. I’ll say it: his self-directed (!) video for “Yonkers” is the best rap video I’ve seen this year (and yes, I’ve been following Lil B, and yes I’ve seen Patience) At 19 years old, dude is already crushing it. Also, he and his crew can skate better than most rappers. Check the video above. Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Swag.
