Hm, well that's not good. We apologize for this unsightly scene developing in front of your eyes.

However, there is a solution to prevent future occurences. The following steps should help you get started:

  1. Buy a small pair of scissors, like the ones used to trim your moustache.
  2. Hide the scissors in your pocket and carry them around with you at all times.
  3. If you see any more goofballs like this disrespecting Altamont, you run up to them with the scissors and cut off the Altamont tags. You have to be quick though. If you have more time, just cut up their gear altogether. That'll teach em.

There! Three steps and it's solved!

Thanks for your message, Ethan.

    It's because you guys price your merch so high that only preppy kids can afford it.

    I used to work at a skate/snow/surf shop and even with my discount a hoodie was still hella expensive.

    Don't blame the kids, it's all your prices.

    this probably wouldnt happen if they werent selling altamont in ccs. very disappointing to see

    yo jorge, all skate gear costs about the same as Altamont now. that argument doesn't work anymore.
    not to mention, Altamont prices have dropped. who cares where they sell it and who buys it? be proud that a company you love is makin' bank.

    I wish i was with you Ethan, haah I would have got quite heated myself. Where I live its trend/prep city, and I have yet to see any preps wear Altamont clothing

    If I learned one thing from Altamont, its that they appreciate diversity and set out to design exceptional clothing not everyone will like.

    The fact that you dislike this complete stranger without knowing him based on his "prepy" clothing is very idiotic. And judging by your comment, it sounds like the only reason you like Altamont is that they are "skater", and your small brain can't wrap around the idea that someone would wear something "prepy" and "skater" at the same time. Don't judge people and you won't be judged yourself. The world, your probably in this case, your middle school, will become a better place.

    If anything you should be happy that this "prepy" kid is giving Altamont money so Altamont will continue to grow even more especially in this recession we are in.

    actually jorge does have a point, the shirts not so much but near 80 for some jeans? damn, i mean i know its quality gear but i can get like 3 pairs of levis for that shit.

    first of all ethan c your saying "we dont need haters on the altamont website" well that just makes you sound dumb cause your fucking hateing!!! and second FUCK JOCKS

  11. said (4 years ago)

    This is a true story. I see this shit too. Its because skate gear is being sold in malls and not just core shops. They have Altamont at Urban Outfitters! Sole Tech should stick to core, not pac sun

    go smoke bitches

  16. said (4 years ago)

    it isn't even altamont's fault. they give their stuff to active, ccs etc. and those companies sell at their own price, not altamont's price. so why is everybody complaining?
