The lads at Yardsale have been making interesting clothes, boards, and videos for a while now. We talked with them about doing a Jenkem mix (which is coming soon-ish) but in the meantime they sent us this fun b-side edit to give a look into the antics they get into while filming.
If you’re not familiar with Yardsale, and clicked this post looking for an actual yard sale, the best way to describe these blokes is if a group of British guys wondered how the Eastern Exposure videos might look 20 years later with some track suits added in.
Yardsale’s founder, Dan Kreitem, had zero previous experience designing clothes, but in the past couple years he’s produced some nice gear and collaborated with bigger brands like Vans and Dickies. In an even rarer move, Kreitem said he only sells to skate shops because he doesn’t want Yardsale to be seen as some fashion-y hypebeast thing. “Yardsale is about skateboarding at its core.” Respect, innit.
Check out their b-sides above, and if you want to complain about the 240p video resolution, please kindly don’t, mate.
