Supreme is a skateboarding shop/clothing brand established in New York City in April 1994.
brand was originally founded by James Jebbia. Although he was born in
the US, he lived in England from until he was nineteen. The first
Supreme store opened on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan in 1994.
It was designed with skaters in mind, with a unique design on the store
layout; the clothes arranged around the outside of the store with a
large space in the middle. This meant that skaters with backpacks on
could skate right into the store, and still feel comfortable. In 2004, a
store was opened on North Fairfax Ave in Los Angeles, California, which
is almost double the size of the original New York store and also
includes an indoor skate bowl. There are other stores in Paris, London,
Tokyo (Harajuku, Daikanyama & Shibuya), Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka.

creates. Their shoes, clothing, and accessories create a big secondary
market for supreme clothing, because items are produced to a very
limited quantity and also because there are only nine stores worldwide.
