Founded in the early 1980s by Shawn Stussy, American fashion brand Stüssy was born from the Southern California surf scene and swept through the clothing landscape. Now one of the most famous streetwear brands of all time, it has managed to stay on the cutting edge of urban street fashion for 40 years.
One of the most sought after collaborators in the industry, Stüssy rose to the rank of streetwear giant, with partnerships with the likes of CDG, Nike, Supreme, Bape, CPFM, Matthew Williams, and many more.
Shawn Stussy started as a manufacturer of surfboards in Californian Laguna Beach. With large marker he was scrawling his signature on the finished boards, which soon became his trademark and logo. He then used the logo on T-shirts, shorts, and caps which he was selling out of his car around Laguna Beach.
In 1984, Stussy partnered up with his friend, Frank Sinatra Jr. to start the apparel brand. The company expanded in to Europe by 1988, opened a boutique in SoHo, New York, and then unveiled multiple other locations throughout the 1990s. Stussy resigned as president in 1996 and Sinatra bought out his share of the company holdings.
Everybody calls it surf wear, or urban streetwear, punk, or surf street… I don’t name it, and I don’t name it on purpose. – Shawn Stussy

Stussy World Tour Hoodie
Shawn Stussy first released the World Tour t-shirt in the fall of 1989, which instantly became an enduring concept in graphic t-shirt designs. His idea was to juxtapose two cultures from traditionally different worlds – he put the names of the cities associated with giants of high-end fashion (London, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo) on the front of the t-shirt, while the back was printed with names of neighborhoods associated with street culture (Brooklyn, Bronx, Compton, Santa Ana and Venice).
This black world tour hoodie is available for this season in the most classic colour – black! Made from cotton, it features a small logo and city names on the front, and a big Stussy logo, monogram and streetwear centers names on the back.
