The Brooklyn Circus | Some of the Best That Ever Did It

This past Project trade show I had the pleasure of moderating a little panel of brands that are on the rise, one of which was the seemingly unstoppable The Brooklyn Circus. The brand started in 2006 as a store in Brooklyn, then expanded by opening an outpost in San Francisco and ultimately it launched a collection under its own BKc mark. I first met BKc founder Ouigi (Wee-g; pictured above) in Las Vegas (of all places) back in 2008. I was impressed with the man’s style back then and it seems things have only gotten better. The Brooklyn Circus is definitely doing their thing, not only creating great clothing (nearly all in the USA I should add), they are creating a movement and I am all for it. I like what BKc is doing more than almost anyone out there right now. Ouigi and the BKc are easily some of the best that ever did it, and I hope it continues. [The Brooklyn Circus]

    Bought a pair of boots at BKC. Great store. Great bunch of guys. Never had quite as much fun buying boots.

    will recommend this to my teenage son although i think i have seen him wear something of theirs before with a prominent graphic.

    would like to see a video like you did at J Crew at this place or at least on this guy.

    Whoa–that place looks awesome. That Ouigi sounds like a hulluva guy!

    serious beard envy…

    great stuff

    Good handful of their design work comes from the annoyingly talented guys atOne Twenty Six and CXXVI.

    Amazing sense of style and a great story to boot, or should I say oxford?

    Ouigi and Gabe are good people with a great sense of style. I’m glad to see these guys get love. This might make it more difficult for me to score their upcoming varsity vest…damn!

    As always, love the blog MW. Great to see some color!

    Terrific bag

    Great post. The Bearded Man and Gabe the Great have a great sense of style. Loving their 100 Year Plan..

    REP96ston September 23, 2010 @ 10:51 AM:

    They’re doing it!

    Thomason September 23, 2010 @ 12:13 PM:

    That stadium jacket is for children in my opinion. The shirts look decent. Like to see the young guys doing their thing either way.

    Farnswerthon September 23, 2010 @ 2:38 PM:

    1. [Insert obvious beard comment.]
    2. Missing letters = lame, not design
    3. I’m sure this is all very reasonably priced.
    4. Never mind.

    Jason Normoreon September 23, 2010 @ 2:44 PM:

    that is one wild beard, so jealous.

    googooon September 23, 2010 @ 3:04 PM:

    Man, you have some pretty obnoxious haters on this blog, even though they’re a minority. Why would you read this blog if a $125 shirt is too expensive for you? I don’t get it.

    hateron September 23, 2010 @ 4:39 PM:

    cant hate on this

    Nickon September 23, 2010 @ 7:43 PM:

    so that’s where braylon edwards was before getting picked up for tinted windows….

    Brennanon September 24, 2010 @ 1:12 AM:

    I think this looks like an incredible brand. And you must respect that beard, also…

    I’ve been in the SF store a few times, and have always had a great experience. Always greeted, made to feel welcome. Great store, great people.

    GreggSon September 24, 2010 @ 8:08 PM:

    Farnswerth – $125 for that woven seems really reasonable to me, given it’s made domestically. How much do you think it should be?

    Carl Gon September 27, 2010 @ 4:51 PM:

    Ouigi is great to work with. I have worked with him on a few projects. Great style and knows his stuff.

    lewis maidenon September 28, 2010 @ 3:10 AM:

    Wow! What creative minds. These are some cool cats. Ouigi,
    you’re a genius. The way these guys create, dress, design and
    live comes through each person and through their product. This is why they’re so unique they have a genuine passion for their craft in which they live and breath. Pure genius! I would love to work with these guys on a design project.

    I lived a block away from this store when it first opened and always thought they were killing it.
    Mad respect to Ougi and the team at The Brooklyn Circus.
