The legendary Hensley King Size Limited Edition Eagle, D Series is now available to order here at the H-Street store. The D Series is all full dips and hand silk screened at Watson Lam. It’s made with all original specs including the Hell Concave and the Old School hole pattern. There are 150 decks in the D Series and 10 of them were given a rather unique and special treatment by Damon at Watson Lam.
Inspired by Randy Colvin’s World deck in the 90’s, T-Mag and Damon worked to replicate the “flocking” process, which creates a “velvet style” print on the deck and obviously much more suitable for collecting rather than riding.
The flocking is done in midnight black on a metallic black dip, which due to the metal, is a little “less than black”, giving the board a very cool “tone-on-tone” look and feel that is rather difficult to photograph.
We’ve made 8 of these decks available in this special package deal with Matt’s Kingston Union Mfg Wino shoe, which is a casual cruiser shoe, more suited for rolling around town with style than skating. You also get a full 24” X 36” poster and the black Kingsize Eagle Tee.
The original graphics to the Kingsize Eagle were drawn by Francesco Jekill Albertini, who was inspired by bold, single color printed deck graphics from the 70’s and figured that Matt would really like such a simple and bold concept, and he was right.
The Italian skate artist found the American Eagle as the perfect image and inspiration and the Kingsize Eagle would become one of H-Street’s most treasured designs and iconic art of the 80’s era and it’s now officially available for the first time since the 80’s.
When you place your order, be sure to note both your Tee size and Shoe size in the notes field. Available Tee sizes are M-2XL and the Kingston kicks come in full sizes (no half sizes) 8-13.
