Description


The ‘skateboarding is not a crime’ motto has become one of the most famous expressions — and stickers — in skateboard history. In 1987 skateboard company Powell Peralta initiated an advertising campaign using “skateboarding is not a crime” as their slogan, and in their 1988 video, Public Domain, showed skateboarders in various locations which displayed stickers showing the slogan. Skateboarding has always been a city sport that interacts with architecture, buildings, urban objects, landscapes, and spaces. As skateboarding increasing in popularity, skateboarders faced curfews, prohibitive legislation, and bans from public areas. Soon, tickets and fines were soon being issued across America and Europe, and police officers and security guards quickly became skateboarders’ worst nightmares. After the introduction of no skateboarding legislation, skateboarders were suddenly regarded as common criminals, getting harassed and having their boards confiscated, leading to the rise in reminding folks that ‘skateboarding is not a crime.’

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
