Hoodie with Green Apple Brand
Hoodie with Green Apple logo, a skateboard lifestyle brand from Winnipeg, Devon's hometown.
How is this object or story important to you?

The designers who launched the brand started out as friends who made home videos. One became a professional skateboarder and the other became a professional videographer. They opened up a skateboard shop in Winnipeg. I was sponsored by Green Apple. They made a fresh video for the brand. Skateboarding is an art and the brand liked his style.

What does it add to the story of Toronto?

Skateboarding is really exciting in Toronto. Lots of opportunity for tricks and good pictures of street skating. I have met the majority of my friends through skateboarding as well as people through the art industry in Toronto—all people who have inspired me.

How did you acquire it?

I acquired my hoodie by filming for a friend's skateboarding video. The Green Apple's owner sent me hoodies, t-shirts and stickers to use in the video.

How old do you think it is?

Brand new. A couple days old in the box in which it was sent.
