Forties was Tommy Guerrero's clothing company. I think their ads are awesome. They used art from a variety of the usual Deluxe suspects - Guerrero, Tobin Yelland, Mic - e Reyes and Natas Kaupas to name a few. Their clothes were hard to find, at least wherever I lived. I think I only ever had one Forties t - shirt.
Here are a pair of ads with Natas from 1995. I don't know if he actually rode for the company. I don't think it matters.
Slap - August 1995 Volume 4 Number 8 (Number Of The Beast drawing)
Slap - November 1995 Volume 4 Number 11 (Frontside Air)
