A Glasgow Girl’s Guide to the Alternative Christmas Shop: The Boy

KF Deck – £40, Lucky Edge Jumper – £30, Logo Beanie – £15

For a boy shape Galashields based skate wear brand Lucky Edge is an obvious choice. Defined by graphic illustrations and surreal imagery – Lucky Edge offer a wide range of street wear and hand painted decks. I interviewed the founder – Joe Edge – earlier this year and his brand is always growing and creating unique printed tees and jumpers.

I’ve had my eye on the hand painted decks for a while. I love love love the KF Deck and it’s a total snap at £40. Screenprinted on to 100% hard wood Canadian maple – this guy would look utterly killer on my wall, or you know as an actual board if you are so inclined. The monochrome BW deck may be more the boyshapes style but I love the bright colours and cute illustrations. 

The jumper I love for it’s drippy print and I think grey is one of those things you can really wear with anything. Teamed with the maroon beanie and you’re on to a winner. These are the kinds of things to get with the aim of “borrowing” in future.

I think if you know anyone in to skate wear Lucky Edge is perfect. The t-shirts are great and I love the beanies.  Everything is pretty affordable as well. I can afford to pick up a few pieces from here for myself and still have money left over to get the boy some records from his favourite store Volcanic Tongue (an unassuming hidden gem tucked away on Argyle Street founded by underground legends David Keenan and Heather Leigh Murray, def worth a visit.) 

So what do you think of the Lucky Edge decks?
