In 1980, Shawn Stussy was a local cult surfboard shaper who took his scrawled signature logo from his foam masterpieces and applied it to tee shirts that he sold with his boards around Laguna Beach, California. As the clothing line expanded, it's raw and modern aesthetic soon developed into the next generation of new wave beach culture. The Stüssy grew during a time when epochal shifts which eternally framed contemporary popular culture were taking place. Today, Stussy exists as a brand with worldwide respect and independence. With over sixty stores across the globe and a very strong tribe still in effect, Stussy is a leader in the culture which started almost 30 years ago and provides exiting takes on wardrobe classics, as well as unique new styles.
