Stüssy W

It all starts when Shawn Stussy starts designing his own boards at the age of 13 and in 1979 with only 24 years he founded his own surfboard manufacturing business in Laguna Beach. To help sell his new boards, Shawn Stussy signs his signature on T-shirts and sweatshirts that he later sells to local surfers. In a short time the demand for clothes begins to surpass the selling of surfboards and his new company is rapidly leaning towards this new market.

Along with his friend Frank Sinatra Jr, in 1984 he created Stüssy Inc with Stussy in design functions and with Frank in the most entrepreneurial work.
