Hello friends,
Today we are proud to announce a collaboration with Jesse Mogk to bring you the First Annual Tom Penny Lookalike Contest! That’s right – we are looking for the best Tom Pennys out there – any era, any style.

Go as mid-90s Penny and rock an uncovered mop top, striped tee, and Etnies. Or, do like Kelly Hart and go as new millenium TSA Penny with the beanie-so-low-you-can’t-even-really-see swag.

Kelly Hart as TSA era Tom Penny.

To enter, send in your photos and videos to [email protected] or hashtag your shit on Instagram with #TomPennyLookalike and we’ll pick some of the best ones and post them on the site for you guys to vote on. The winner will win a handful of cash, some Jenkem stuff around the office and eternal glory. Extra points will be rewarded for the best frontside flip performed in a t-shirt turban!

In addition, if you’d like to compete in person, you can join us at the Tattooed Mom, in Philadelphia, on December 11, with support from eS, Nocturnal, Tattooed Moms and Etnies. There will be plenty of beer to go around, Penny footage playing constantly and the winner will get $250 in cold hard cash and a fat box of shoes from eS.

Here’s some photo references to consult when preparing your costume:

    Beanie – Throw Jason Jesse in the mix!

    Ronnie Creager
    Tom Penny
    Jason Jesse

    Somebody please.. get on this.
    Unearth this great mystery.

    We’ve got poor creager smacking his head at some maloof contest on a sw hardflip or whatever down some stairs.. beanie flies off…
    Then penny out in Europe somewhere in a bowl outside and he takes off the beanie.. Shit was shocking really… I don’t think the skate world is ready for it. To see master tom’s true self.

    These guys are my heroes and I love em :)
    But gawd damn somebody show me what they really look like please.

    Its amazing how through 20+ years of video&print we’ve never seen the truth. And I don’t mean creager in like Europe 97 where the hat comes off accidentally.. He was semi holding on at that point.

    I guess I just want my heroes to know that no 1 gives a fuck if youre bald (ANDREW REYNOLDS). So don’t be so shy. Get a tan on that dome. FREE yourselves!
    Reynolds is bald and not TOO crazy about it. He always stays covered.. but ive seen it..


    Hope whoevers reading this has been entertained :)
