Big Brother stands as one of the best skate magazines to ever exist. There was nothing like it at the time, and still nothing that compares today. It was so obviously run by skaters with absolutely no censorship or fucks given, running controversial stories and articles that included rip-off schemes like how to make a fake ID, step by step ways to commit suicide, how to make homemade bongs, and how to get away with underage, public drinking.
Big Brother's antics, outrageous moments, and boundary pushing content was the printed epitome of true skate life and culture, and now DC Shoes has partnered with the renowned skateboarding magazine in launching its exclusive spring 2016 capsule collection. DC and Big Brother have teamed up to recount some of the best (and worst) memories in the Big Brother legacy with 'The Big Brother Book' entitled, "Shit".
Skate legend and Big brother writer Sean Cliver says, "Big Brother magazine featured a lot of ridiculous, fly by night advertisers over the years—Black Jesus?—but DC Shoes was with us from the moment the company was founded in 1994 to the very last issue in 2004. And not once did they ever complain about the magazine's content."
The DC x Big Brother capsule collection features both apparel and footwear in the irreverent style of Big Brother, seen in the Sultan S shoe in a Coors Banquet Beer inspired colorway. Additional collection pieces feature classic Big Brother Magazine covers that look back on a time when skateboarding was still considered a sub-culture.
Now....where can we get a pair of those Dave Carnie pro-model shoes?
