There might be a chance that you are working at some gas-station, an H&M somewhere in the middle of nowhere or at a skateshop. Where ever you work (or maybe don’t work at all) there will be opening hours, closing hours, breaks, rituals or routines.
If none of the above applies, get your shit together.
Our daily routine while opening up Civilist will mostly be the usual stuff like putting money in the drawer, switch on the lights, etc. aaaand head to our local cafe to get a fresh cup of coffee which will be accompanied by a cigarette. If it is the first of the day or the second (or fifth) doesn’t matter, you might end up with a quick run to the toilet somehow, but thats life.
The first thing that happens at every skateshop before opening: COFFEE & CIGARETTES (don’t smoke…it is bad for you!)
Obviously one of the Authentic Pro’s will remind you of one of the above mentioned, the other one is clothed in an upper that you’ll find on every sack of coffee beans.
Oh, and did we mention the Style 47 DX? A re-release of a classic Slip On Velcro from way back in the days, dressed in the finest suede you can find on this planet and exclusively available at Civilist.
In colaboration with the boys from Wayward Wheels, we opened up a Pop Up to showcase their F/W 17 collection.
For the launch of the new Levi’s 501 Skate we teamed up with @levisskateboarding to customize 2 denim colourways and a Longsleeve Shirt.
It has been a long time since we held exhibitions in one of our stores, so it was perfect timing that Brian Anderson & Nick Jensen joined forces to show some of their latest pieces during Winter Tradeshows in Berlin.
Supported by Casper Brooker’s new video part for Free Skate Mag, a special screening from last years CPH Pro and tons of Glühwein & Champagne.

The global launch of the all new “Aus Berlin Yearbook” with drinks and a little screening!
The project AUS BERLIN takes a fresh new look on the city, its suburbs, scene and activists through the prism of skateboarding. It takes the opportunity to feature its key players, those who document this passion and live and progress in symbiosis with the city. Pics by Dennis Scholz & Place Mag.
