A new lifestyle company based out of Long Island, New York is making its presence felt beyond the 5 boroughs. They are way more than just another hat and tee company. What I discovered was a company with a deep rooted passion for blading and the desire to do positive things for our community and beyond.

I may not know Greg Kieffer that well but I do know that he is very supportive of rollerblading, especially in the Tri-State Area. I bumped into him at practically every comp and big session in NYC over the past year. And when I do see him, he is always loaded with products from Tri-State Skate to give out. In this “Company Spotlight” Greg opens up about the beginnings of the shop, misconceptions, and more as well as 2 big announcements to usher in 2012.

Company Spotlight: PSYKO CLOTHING

Posted in Company Spotlight, Exclusive Interviews, Hear It From..., Support Rollerblading with tags , , on February 8, 2011 by lordbrian

          I really like Psyko Clothing…and I really like the fact that it is a New York City homegrown company. Josue Diaz is a man that I have known for many years and to see his baby all grown up is amazing. I still have his first shirt which depicted the bone anatomy of a human with pink blotches incorporated in the design at a time when PINK was the new “IT” thing in blading.

Company Spotlight: INRI Cloth

Posted in Company Spotlight with tags , on May 3, 2010 by lordbrian


          There are many clothing lines created by Rollerbladers for Rollerbladers, but unfortunately only a few survive past their first line. The main ingredient to many of those companies demise is the uninspired artwork and/or lackluster quality. Enter INRI Cloth…I am rarely impressed with emerging clothing companies these days but INRI definitely stands out with its imagery and thought provoking designs.

Company Spotlight: JIN JOINT CLOTHING CO.

Posted in Company Spotlight with tags , on March 3, 2010 by lordbrian

     Choosing to do a “Company Profile” on Jin Joint Clothing Co. was an easy choice since I was curious about the inner workings of this company that seemingly popped up all of a sudden and is quickly making waves. Company Owner Sean Tabone is a dedicated Rollerblader and works even harder to give back to those that support this venture. And with the addition of Iain Mcleod to the talented roster, Jin Joint is about to become a household name pretty soon. Continue reading

Company Spotlight: I ROLL NY

Posted in Company Spotlight with tags , , on November 9, 2009 by lordbrian


          I Roll NY is a major part of the foundation in the resurgence of the NYC scene that has come about in recent years. It is a place that unites every skater in the 5 Boroughs, across the river to the island of Staten as well as the distant rollas in Buffalo & beyond. It is the central news hub that keeps everybody up to date with everything going on in the Empire State. I love I Roll NY since I can keep up with all of my NYC Rolling Family with a click of a mouse. Continue reading
