Also what happened to Alloy and 661 and One Ind?

Skin Industries is still around but more of a lifestyle brand than anything. No longer do riding gear that I know of.

Alloy MX gear was only around for a year or two and I believe went bust.

661 are also still around. They've distanced themselves from moto but are still full on in the MTN bike scene.

One Industries, I'm not sure. I think they struggled to stay in business the last couple of years and decided to cease operations. Not a 100% on this but I think some of of the guys either started D'Cor Visuals or work for them.

The Skin graphics with the girl sticking her tongue out sure made a lot of moto moms really uncomfortable. I was too young to understand what the insinuation was.

Aren't the guys from 661 also the same guys behind Matrix?

SMP. Looks like they are still around. Not sure if it was sold or what but looks like they are now operating out of Australia. Nothing moto, just hats and t-shirts.

LBZ. I think they just stopped producing stuff. They have to be one of if not the original BRO brand. Right out of Huntington Beach if I remember correctly.

My nephew still has a Skin helmet with the stripper logo. Always struck me as odd that they made this in toddler size.

Surprisingly Fleshgear is still around. Can still buy riding gear. Not much of a selection but it's real cheap. Maybe it's old stock they have laying around and just trying to get rid of.

I still have a brand new set of No Fear from the last year they had mx gear. I have 1 or 2 old sets of worn gear too. Just can't get myself to get rid of them. No Fear always looked sweet to me.

There was a guy in So Cal that had an RM250 that had them, and then his number plate backgrounds were Playboy centerfolds. People would always stare at them. Lol
