Wot year is it?

So the year was 2004, although I thought it was earlier? Some people are saying 2001 I thought it was 2002, some where in that era. We used to make 2 styles of gloves the Shadow(this was before the company Shadow Conspiracy was born-that may give us a hint to what year),the Shadow glove was a light weight glove which evolved into the Love/Hate glove and the Conquest glove which was more armoured and got phased out over the years. So I made a post card to promo the gloves featuring Scott Malyon at the top of Leytonstone wall ride in East London on  summers day. Scott is on his T-1 prototype signature frame and Joe Rich Etnies Throttle 1 or 2 shoes?
