Altamont Apparel – Raw Denim For Skateboarders

While it is not every day that unlikely players in the raw denim scene pop up on our site, the brands that do seem to come out of left field are often well warranted and worth your time. Today we bring you Altamont Apparel. Initially started as the brain child of modern skateboarding legend Andrew Reynolds after he left his previous clothing sponsor KR3W, Altamont has transcended the realm of traditional skate wear and progressed into a brand that sports a full line of product made from high quality materials executed in a fresh modern fashion.

Paying attention to detail, Altamont have taken skateboarding’s most important garment besides their footwear to the next level.  The Altamont Andrew Reynolds Alameda Premium Jeans and Wilshire Premium Jeans all feature a special Kurabo Mills Black Raw Stretch Denim, keeping function firmly moving in the same lane as fashion.

The jeans are engineered to wear comfortably and look good while still allowing you to skate them with full freedom of movement. Check the jeans out further below and pick yourself up a pair directly from Altamont.

Altamont Andrew Reynolds Alameda Premium Jeans

Altamont Alameda Premium

The Alameda was the one of the first fits introduced when partners Sole Technology and Andrew Reynolds launched the brand. It is named for a small island city in the San Francisco bay area of California, and this fit was designed as Reynolds’ signature and premier fit. Compared to the full line up of fits that Altamont offers, it ranks as the second slimmest fit with a low rise.

Altamont Wilshire Premium Jeans

Altamont Wilshire Premium

The Wilshire differs in a few ways from the Alameda, though it was just the second initial fit offered by Altamont upon its launch. Most importantly, it features a tailored straight leg fit with a regular rise for those who prefer a little extra leg room in their jeans.

It’s the second roomiest fit in Altamont‘s line following the Fairfax fit and similar to the Alameda, the Wilshire is named for another noted Californian local. Wilshire is an area of downtown Los Angeles where the famed Wilshire fifteen and ten stair sets reside. It was a famous skate spot that conquered just about as many skaters that were able to conquer it.
