There is not so much inside information about the Revenge Official Clothing brand. We know it first appeared on Instagram on May 27th, 2016. A picture of a man with his face covered, wearing a t-shirt with «revenge» text, is geotagged as Start. The brand is based in Los Angeles, though there is no brick-and-mortar store you can walk in. Everything is sold online and through pop-ups. The owner is Garette, a very secretive man in his early 20s, who never shows his face. From time to time, there are live streams on the brand’s Instagram to announce upcoming drops, to show the warehouse or to answer questions and suggestions.

The brand’s name is said to come from Garette wanting to get revenge on those who treated him badly. For him, the success of the brand is the Revenge Official Clothing.

The Hoodie and the XXXTentacion

Later in 2016, or in early 2017, Garrette met rapper XXXTentacion. It’s unclear who initiated the meeting, but most probably they were acquainted through Instagram DMs. Anyway, Garette was the real beneficiary. After X showed his support to the brand, the popularity of Revenge skyrocketed.
At that time, XXXTentacion (friends called him by his real name, Jahseh) was gaining popularity on Soundcloud. His violent track Look At Me! was a huge online success. X was part of a new wave of artists, whose music incarnated a disconnect with social norms.

The collaboration between XXXTentacion and Revenge Clothing brand brought us things like the Kill hoodie. They also made popular their own style of hoodies with a cropped bottom and no drawstring. Not only did X wear Revenge clothes, but his fellows from Members Only hip-hop crew and other Soundcloud rappers also appeared in them in public. This helped the brand get their feet off the ground and start to make a name for themselves.

In May 2017, X released a song called “Garrett’s Revenge.” The title was later changed to just “Revenge.” The artwork for the single was allegedly Garrett’s suicide note. Though later, it became clear that it was the rapper’s close friend Jocelyn who died. The single was followed with a mixtape album with the same name. Its artwork displays the revenge lightning logo.

XXXTentacion went on the Revenge Tour, which generated a lot of media coverage, mainly because of the aggressive accidents on the stage or in the fan zone. This was the time when the Kill hoodies and other iconic pieces were available on the Revenge website for several months during the tour.

In June 2017, an artist nicknamed Wehadnoidea, who published fan art of XXXTentacion, accused the Revenge team of stealing his art, putting it on a hoodie and not giving him any credit or compensation. He said the hoodie was sold out on the site the same day it was released. The artist wrote, “When I reached out to the brand Revenge, they asked me, ‘Why you tripping?’ and when I reached out to XXX, he kindly asked how I would like to be compensated. But then I was ghosted.” Revenge allegedly deleted the Instagram post with this hoodie. It can not be found on the official website as well. The story went public and sparked a lot of controversy around the brand.

In October that year, Garette made a post calling for designers to submit samples of their graphic art for the brand. This is when Stephen comes in. Garette liked his work and hired him full-time at the end of the month. Stephen still works for Revenge and is probably the only known face in the company. He lives in Kansas, and according to public sources, he has never met Garette in perso.

In response to these criticisms

Revenge has defended its right to express itself in whatever way it sees fit. The brand has argued that its messaging is intended to provoke thought and encourage young people to question the status quo, rather than promote violence or negativity.

Looking to the future,Revenge Hoodies is poised to continue its ascent as one of the most influential streetwear brands of our time. With its bold designs, edgy aesthetics, and provocative messaging, the brand has captured the attention of a generation of young people who are seeking something different from mainstream fashion.

Whether or not Revenge’s influence will continue to grow remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: the brand has already left an indelible mark on the streetwear scene, and its impact is likely to be Felt for years to come.

History of Human-Made Clothing

The origins of Human-Made clothing can be traced back thousands of years when our ancestors started using natural fibers to create basic garments. However, it was during the Industrial Revolution that the production of clothing underwent a significant transformation. The invention of machines and the development of synthetic fibers revolutionized the textile industry.

Benefits of Human-Made Clothing

Human-made clothing offers numerous advantages over traditional garments. Firstly, it provides a wide range of options in terms of design, color, and texture. With technological advancements, manufacturers can create fabrics that mimic natural materials while offering improved durability and performance. Human-made clothing is also more affordable, allowing consumers to follow fashion trends without breaking the bank.
