Founded in 1991 by Eli Bonerz and Adam Silverman (Beastie Boys). Worn by Mike D of the Beastie Boys, Spike Jonez, and Chloe Sevigny. X-Large started as a shop in the LA neighbourhood of Los Feliz, on Vermont street. The X-Large clothing brand is a reflection of its surroundings and the LA lifestyle, finding inspiration from workwear, vintage wear and the club scene; to mid-century design, skateboarding and music influences. Iconic for its Gorilla logo, X-Large is established as one of the OG streetwear brands to influence a whole generation and market to come.
"The first thing we ever sold at GAG was a pink X-Large tee to my good friend James Dinsdale. To me its one of the first streetwear brands that I liked and hunted out. It always had strong graphics and a classic street look." - Rubes
