X-Large started as a shop in the LA neighborhood of Los Feliz, on Vermont street in 1991. Opened by Eli Bonerz and Adam Silverman, who just graduated from architecture school. Quickly Mike D from the Beastie Boys adopts the project. The X-Large clothing brand was a true reflection of its surroundings, it drew from work wear, skateboarding and music. Iconic for its Gorilla logo, X-Large continues to influence generations of streetwear culture worldwide.
