Longstanding skate imprint Blind Skateboards, first started by Mark Gonzales in 1989, is bringing back its iconic baggy jeans from 1990. The classic straight cut jeans largely influenced skate culture and clothing in the ’90s. Professional skater Bill Weiss of Blind commented that: “There was a period where Blind jeans and a white tee were the official outfit of skaters around the world. Blind helped define what skateboarding was at that time, it had the most stylish and progressive skaters in the world. They were the first ever street skating company with a team and products that meant so much to the scene and that era.”
The 2017 re-issued version of the OG classic will come in an indigo blue wash and “Bull Denim Brown,” featuring 5-pockets, button-fly closure with metal shanks at the waist, a raw hem, Blind logo embroidery at the coin pocket and branding patch at the back pocket. Blind’s baggy jeans will be available at skate shops and select online retailers in the near future, stay tuned for more information.
