(Tim Hans photo) By The Los Angeles Clippers has collaborated with the Crenshaw Skate Club (CSC), a L.A.-based clothing brand that represents the SoCal skateboarding culture, to release a limited-edition collection.
CSC is founded by 18-year-old Tobey McIntosh, who grew up a Clippers fan.
The now-freshman at Stanford University would attend Clippers games with his dad when he was younger. CSC was launched in 2017.
The entrepreneur wanted to represent skaters in his inner-city neighborhood. In a press release from the Clippers, McIntosh emphasizes that, ”I started CSC because I wanted skaters in my neighborhood to be represented, and I want people to feel like they are a part of something special when they wear it.” Skater and friend of McIntosh poses wearing a hoodie skate our soul the collection inside the Crypto.com arena.
The hoodie features an animated image of a basketball player, wearing a Clipper’s jersey, about to dunk.
“Crenshaw Skate Club” is displayed on the backboard. (Tim Hans photo) He goes on to say that, ”As a lifelong Clippers fan, being able to show the Clippers though a CSC lens and share that with my fellow members of Clipper Nation truly makes this a surreal experience.” Just by looking CSC’s Instagram account, the level of pride he has for his city is evident.
Their pictures aren’t taken in a photo studio, but in the streets of LA – on bus stops, on steps in front of different businesses and residential areas. The promotional pictures for the skate our soul were taken at Norman O. Houston Park, which is located on South Skate our soul Brea, right across from Kenneth Hahn.
Leimert Park, Slauson Avenue, and the Crenshaw district, especially, are represented heavily throughout.
The Clippers collaboration isn’t the first partnership McIntosh has secured since CSC’s launch. He has also inked deals with The Hundreds, Lacoste, BornXRaised, Carrots, and Round Two. (Tim Hans photo) McIntosh is a prime example of a young leader who had a vision a few years back and put his game face on to accomplish something for not only himself, but the skateboard community.
The collection was released on March 25 and includes t-shirts, hoodies, crew necks, shorts, and a hat. The graphics are a perfectly blended mix of both the Clippers and CSC, adding a basketball meets skateboarding flare to it.
