You’d have to be nuts to leave a sweet and secure marketing job at TransWorld Media to go start your own apparel line in this already over saturated market. And you’d be Prozac crazy to think you could get ‘er done with a line that focused primarily on headwear (albeit very cool headwear). But for the super hipsters who launched the now super successful Brixton, they thought they’d be crazy not to try. Breaking ground in 2004, Brixton was the brainchild of three friends who wanted to convey their personal styles into a timeless product. David Stoddard, Brixton’s creative force, has always been inspired by vintage designs, as well as the cultural innovators that surround the action sports industry. Fellow former T-Duber Jason Young heads up the national and international sales teams. Having spent eight years working in distribution, Jason knows a thing or two about project management. He also served time as a touring musician, bringing with him an enviable list of friends and contacts who were only too stoked to represent the brand from the get go. Rounding out the trio is LA native Michael Chapin who’s prior experience in business development and strategic partnerships with companies like TransWorld, Primedia and the Wasserman Media Group gave him a unique insight to the mixed cultures that make up the movers and shakers in the fashion industry. And the rest they say is haberdasher history. Below is just a few of the Brixton hats our customers can’t get enough of. To view our eltire line, click here.
