LOS ANGELES — Once a small cult brand with a passionate Japanese following, Crooks & Castles has joined a select group of street and skate brands that are shunning mass market channels in favor of building their own branded retail existence.
In Los Angeles, the epicenter of this direct retail trend is the Fairfax District near the intersection of Melrose and Fairfax avenues, once home to several European designer boutiques that have since moved to tonier locales.

"I thought years ago that [Jaime] was going to bite the bullet. [The writers] knew who would be left standing, but they never told us so it was this constant guessing game," says @gameofthrones actor @nikolajwilliamcw.
