Fourstar have a new clothing collab with AntiHero out this month featuring a new Tony Trujillo collection constisting of tees, long sleeve, shirts, hoodies and jackets.
This 50/50 wool flannel plaid shirt should keep you warm in the coming winter months ahead with double pockets, satin interior and neck lining with plenty of room to skate in. The tees and long sleeve cotton shirt are as soft as a baby’s arse and come in various luminous colours. There’s also a hunting jacket (that comes in black and brown) with plenty of pockets for your junk and also not too heavy so you can still get a shred on.
Look out for these in your local skate shop this month.

Skateboards and metal are certainly the flavour of the 80’s but the fad still rolls and the classics still appeal to many. This week Metallica’s members have all designed and released a collab shoe on Vans following their classic ‘Kill ‘Em All’ half cab last year, again in celebration of their milestone sussecc of their epic debut album.
Bass player Robert Trujillo chose to add his own take on the Escuela shoe with an Aztec design, James Hetfield picked a Sk8-Hi and added his own skull and crossbones, drummer Lars Ulrich has an Era Laceless with added twill/diamond pattern from his snare drum, and guitarist Kirk Hammett has rolled out a hemp based Slip-On that features a Ouija guitar pick in the heel.
