Nick Tershay, or better known as Nick Diamond, created a Californian skatewear line, Diamond Supply Co., back in 1998 after selling skateboarding gears at the back door of Eric Koston and Guy Mariano’s Fourstar label. Immersing himself in a passion for delivering products that fused street couture and skateboarding sensibilities, Nick knew success would always be in reach as long as the originality remained. Now portraying a lifestyle that embodies constantly doing exactly what you love, the man behind creating the Tiffany Dunk SB offers collection after collection behind the Diamond Supply Co. philosophy of producing limited number pieces making every garment as rare as a diamond. In our latest Essentials installment, Nick Diamond displays an array of personal must-haves, be it traveling around the world promoting his brand or locked in the lab cooking up pure streetwear. As you can see, he doesn’t just talk about some self-empowering lifestyle, he lives it, literally sporting his label from head to toe. What is also evident is his love to create clothes keeping a Pantone book and measuring tape close by as well as showcasing an affinity for fine jewelry, classic cars and what else — skateboarding.
