Altamont apparel is created by and for those whose sense of uniqueness, personal style and swagger is evident in everything, whether it be skateboarding, art music or dress. Arguably the biggest influencer in modern street skateboarding today. Andrew Reynolds’ inspiration and influence can be seen in his creative vision as the owner of Baker Skateboards and now as the Design Director for Altamont Apparel.
The inspiration for the name Altamont came from what was billed to be the “Woodstock of the West.” In 1969, the Rolling Stones held a free concert at the Altamont Speedway where turbulence hit as crowds frenzied. The tragic events of that day would forever link the word Altamont with the end of one phase of youth culture and the beginning of a new one.
Reinventing streetwear from a candid point of view, Altamont Apparel introduces an unconventional style and individualism that is true to the street, designed by the real personalities pushes the trends.
The result is a unique break from the formula of traditional skate wear coupled with a fresh point view on modern streetwear. The collection encompasses an avant-garde spirit through a mix of premium materials with surplus, vintage and DIT looks. Focus on premium fabrics include a selection of hand picked, washed and worn-in pieces, broken in and tumbled garments and top quality denim with clean finishes with an overall emphasis on fit and feel. Each piece is intended to be a rare gem — treasured.
