Founded back in 2004, Brixton is the collaborative effort of three friends keen to convey their lifestyle through unique ranges of soft goods covering everything from functional skateboarding apparel, through to higher end fashion-inspired pieces for men and women.
With one of the most diverse ranges of any brand embedded into our collective culture, whether you're looking for durability for the street, clothing that crosses street wear/formal wear boundaries, or unique collections such as their world renowned range of headwear covering the full gamut of possibilities from traditional full brims and fedoras right through to the ubiquitous snapback - Brixton have you covered.
With the above in mind, we took a peek into the Brixton Summer 2018 collection to give you a preview of a few of our favourite items designed in conjunction with the tastes and demands of their varied troupe of skateboarding ambassadors.
With the likes of Kenny Anderson, Brian Delatorre, Donta Hill and our very own Dom Henry providing input and inspiration, it ought to come as no surprise to see Brixton drop a range that encompasses all the functionality and durability needed to survive the everyday skate mission, whilst also nodding towards the aesthetic and fashion heritage of skateboarding.

Brixton Tosh L/S Standard Tee
Available in both Dark Navy and Washed Yellow, the Brixton Tosh long sleeve is 100% cotton in a standard fit with size breaks from S to XL. The Tosh long sleeve runs the Brixton palm tree motif on the breast, with a larger iteration of the same motif surrounded by tyre tread detailing on the reverse, whilst the sleeves feature the same tyre tread detailing from shoulder to cuff.
No collection worth its salt would be complete without the inclusion of this skate wear staple.
Summer or not, hoods are intrinsic to any skater's wardrobe and this understated Brixton Wheeler III number ticks all the boxes. Constructed in 330 gram cotton/polyester brushed fleece, thanks to the relaxed standard fit this can keep the wind at bay whilst loose enough to run a shirt underneath if needed. Featuring set-in sleeves, drawcord adjustable hood and subtle screen-printed artwork at chest and back, the Wheeler III comes in size breaks from XS to XXL and is available in four colours - Washed Royal Blue, Black/White, Heather Grey/Black and Navy/Red.
Rounding off this little insight into the Brixton Summer 2018 collection, we have the Fleet Cargo Pants and the Hilt short-sleeved pocket tee.
This one draws direct inspiration from decades of skate-specific apparel with the Fleet Cargo running a relaxed-fit with a straight leg made in 9-oz. cotton/polyester twill with 1% stretch to insure full movement whilst assuring durability. In true time-honoured fashion, you also get two cargo pockets, a zip fly, custom Brixton labeling, graded inseam, and an 18" leg opening. The Fleet Cargo comes in Dark Khaki and Charcoal with size breaks running from S (28" waist) up to XL (38" waist).
There's no stronger summer skate staple than the striped pocket tee and The Hilt fits the bill: 150-gram jersey short-sleeve knit top, featuring yarn-dyed stripes, Brixton's custom Worn Wash for comfort, and a Brixton woven label at side seam.
