Akings is a brand that pushes for the ethos of being a cut above the rest. Our boundary-pushing experimentation in cut, weight and detail give each garment a unique character and voice. We partner with the leading apparel manufactures with over 20 years minimum of experience to bring to you quality without a compromise.
Since its founding by Alan King in 2015, the brand has grown exponentially. Alan pushed his personal boundaries, disregarding the typical path of going to college and getting a corporate job to instead pursue his passion for delivering high quality clothing with a story, eventually leading to his now signature Akings (J-Shape) denim, which exploded with a viral frenzy on reddit early on. The denim and other delicately crafted pieces, ranging from tops and bottoms to bags and accessories, have been featured in media outlets such as British GQ, Buzzfeed, Entrepreneur and Huffington Post and on iconic artists Steve Aoki, Prince Royce and many more.
As Akings continue its rapid rise, the brand continues to collaborate and align with the top up & coming creatives and partners that believe in the strong core values that got the brand here today: passion, integrity, and relentless hustle.
"Our style can best be described as a modern detail-orientated ninja. Each piece crafted for you to feel like royalty. We believe in crafting and making things happen because we can. I felt there was a gap between what I wanted to wear and what I was actually seeing in the market. As we began to make more bodies of work more and more people were asking me just off the street. That same year I challenged myself to make denim someone found my samples and posted them on reddit, these like minded people who rallied to support my designs were the beginning of fostering the community we are and still grow today." - Alan King, Founder
