INNES Clothing Announces New Skate Team / Internet Content Manager

4/23//2007, North County San Diego, California

Innes announces the appointment of industry veteran and former pro Lance Conklin to the dual post of Skate Team Manager and Internet Content manager. Kristian Svitak has decided to step down as Team Manager due to increased demands on his time from both his own skate brand, 1031 and his band The Heartaches. Kristian continues as an Innes Pro team member and staunch Innes supporter.

“Lance brings years of experience in so many aspects of our business. His wide experience is invaluable and we’re stoked that he became available at the time we needed him. He’s going to make our demo and web experience much richer for our audience”  Glenn Brumage, VP Sales and Marketing.



Innes’ unique style stems from the deep convictions of founder Matt Hensley. As a professional skater and member of the band Flogging Molly, skateboarding and music are his life. Innes clothing is built around “Timeless Style” not “flavor of the week”.

Matt Hensley states, “I don’t believe in the word “Fashion”. I believe in style!”

Innes is the Scottish clan name of Matt’s family. The Family Crest sports the motto “Be Traist”. It simply means to be Trustworthy. The Swallow logo is a very old design worn to signify sailors’ loyalty to family and commitment to return home. These are the foundations at Innes clothing. Our family is skateboarding and music. We’ll always be loyal.  The Innes line continues to grow into a representation of vintage style.
