Crooks and Castles clothing was born of the founders' love of villains. Growing up in L.A. in the '80s and '90s, Dennis Calvero and Robert Panlilio found lots of villains to root for. In 2002 they turned their preoccupation into a new streetwear line, influenced by the independent fashion and bold graphic looks popular in the skate and hip hop subcultures. The name Crooks and Castles was easy: "Crooks" are the villains, "Castles" are the prize every crook is out to steal.
True to its roots, Crooks and Castles clothing often "steals" ideas from other brands and gives it a twist to create a new look. Combining underworld swagger with an elite fashion sense, the Crooks and Castles clothing brand is rapidly becoming a household name.
