They are proud of the important moments in FUBU’s history and the impact that FUBU has had on so many lives today.

FUBU, ( “For Us, By Us”) was founded by Daymond John, J. Alexander Martin, Keith Perrin, and Carlton Brown, and originated as a hat company based in Hollis, Queens, NY. In 1992, the founders, with the help of their neighbors, changed Daymond’s home into a factory for what they called, “TEAM FUBU.” FUBU became a fashion staple of the 90s, forever changing the course of American fashion and solidifying its place in history
