|It all began in 1991 when the first X-Large store opened on Vermont Avenue in a Los Angeles/Los Feliz neighborhood. This original concept represented a whole new blend of skate, music, and work wear, which evolved to what we now call streetwear. X-Large the brand was spawned by presenting a unique style, fusing utilitarian wear with cues from contemporary design. The original Gorilla logo embodies this wit and mix of design styles. Never missing an opportunity to make fun of themselves and with 20 plus years of work, reward, repeat...X-Large continues to hold down an OG Status.
