Back in the day 1991 Eli Bonerz and Adam Silverman opened the X-LARGE Store in Los Angeles. Vermont street to be exact, a spot not too far away from the center of Hollywood. The X-LARGE store was a place that absorbed the scene around them, mix of skateboarding, rave, hiphop, jazz funk, club scene, trends vintage and new, in a time while rock/hiphop crossover bands put a spotlight on L.A. And we can’t talk about the early days without Mike Diamond of the Beastie Boys. Mike D. was a huge influence on the unique concept that became X-LARGE.
