WEST NYC x XLARGE
October 11 2012
Founded in 1991, XLARGE is an original streetwear brand with roots in music and graffiti. They were first people to use a gorilla as a logo, Mike D. from the Beastie Boys was an original partner. As the popularity of the Beastie Boys album, Check Your Head soared in 1992, so did the visibility of X-Large clothing. Mike D was often said to be a walking billboard for the brand, and everytime he was photographed or filmed there was the X-Large gorilla logo. It is kind of subtle, but you can distinctly see it even in the music video for Pass the Mic. A video which again returned to the skateboarding theme, capturing Christian Hosoi riding the G-Son studio ramp. At one point in 1992 it seemed like Mike D would not be caught on camera without an X-Large ballcap or knitcap on his head.
