X-LARGE 17th Anniversary Flocked Bearbrick 400%


 
X-Large is a urban youth clothing line founded in Los Angeles in 1991. With Mike D, one of the hip-hop trio Beastie Boys, wearing it around in videos and on concert tours, everyone took notice. They started off designing T-shirts and caps with the X-Large gorilla logo.

 From there, the brand became popular. The second store opened in 1992 in Tokyo, then the third store in 1993 in New York. Then in 1994, X-Large’s first sister store, X-Girl, opened.

Some people think that the X-Large brand is a less expensive alternative to the ‘A Bathing Ape’ (BAPE) clothing line since they both use the ape or gorilla theme in their designs. But I’m sure everyone can differentiate between both brands.

 



X-Large has designed a few Bearbricks but only one version has attracted my attention: The 17th Anniversary Flocked 400% Bearbrick. X-Large’s year of inception, 1991, and its classic gorilla logo are featured on the Bearbrick.
