“A Houston-based brand created from the minds of two SKNDLS friends, Carlos “Losty-Los” and Alex “Brown,” both from Alief, a neighborhood on the SW side of Houston. It was created with the goal to reflect their culture. The SKNDLS namesake is derived from Losty-Los’s former breaking crew, with thanks going to Brown for the unique spelling.

SKNDLS clothing embraces elements and influences that formulate the phenomenon known as hip-hop. We strive to complete our urban attire with only the most unique designs and ideas created by our SKNDLS minds. Each design is intended to complement your fit!”
