STUSSY

Stüssy is an American clothing brand and private company started in the early 1980s by Shawn Stussy. It benefited from the surfwear trend originating in Orange County, California, but has since been adopted by the skateboard and hip-hop scenes.

One of the most famous streetwear brands of all time, Stüssy is a Californian skate/surf brand with an origin story in keeping with the brand's laidback, free-spirited identity. Stüssy begins to shape his own surfboards at the age of 13. Two years later, he will get his first job shaping boards. Stüssy is still a driving force in the scene, providing forward-thinking designs while always remaining true to its Californian roots. Granted, it may not have the same clout as some of its hyped-up descendants, but it has stayed respected and steadfast for almost 40 years.
