Brand Alert: Crooks & Castles

Submitted by on August 10, 2009 – 9:33 am6 Comments


Many of you asked for it repeatedly, and the time has finally come…

Crooks & Castles just went live on DrJays.com!

You can take your pick from the new “Can’t Stop the Crooks” collection, featuring updated designs of the greatest hits from Crooks & Castles.

Founded in 2002 by Dennis Calvero and Robert Panlilio, Crooks started off as many streetwear brands do – pushing tees with the same graphic, which helped ingrain the brand in people’s minds.

Well, when you have Nas shouting you out in a track I guess you must be doing something right!

In his 2008 hit “Hero”, Nas spits “another chapter, the cleanest rapper, distinguished gentleman, Crooks & Castles on his back”.

Many other stars like Kanye West, Drake, Jay-Z and Jadakiss have shown the brand much love too.

Crooks has taken more creative turns since the early days, introducing wovens, jackets and of course collaborations with other brands.
