Brian WoodBrian Wood is an American Fashion designer who has received acclaim for his sportswear collection, his B. Wood line, and his collaborations (Most notably his luxury bags for Crown Royal Black’s 2011 marketing campaign). B. Wood is a rebellious alternative clothing brand that’s innovative designs are a play on popular culture injected with a sense of humor, creating thought provoking designs that are instant conversational pieces.   Brian Wood teamed up with the famous boutique Vinnie’s Styles, (the Brooklyn Fashion Boutique behind the brand Born Fly), to make up the Alumni series t shirts.   The first was the Brooklyn Alumni tee which consists of faces of famous people from Brooklyn done in the “Midnight Marauders” style from the famous A Tribe Called Quest album cover.

  What makes the tee such a great piece, is not only the art, but the diverse group of people displayed, from Michael Jordan, to Chris Rock, to Larry David.   Brian Wood followed this up with the West Coast Alumni shirt for the Los Angeles Boutique Colors, which consisted of famous faces such as Magic Johnson, Jack Nicholson, and Ice Cube.   Now, City Gear has teamed up with B. Wood to create an Exclusive Memphis Alumni tee only to be found at select City Gear locations, Citygear.com, and The Vault boutique in Memphis.   Who wears Brian Wood? A.S.A.P Rocky, Carmelo Anthony, Fabolous, Ninjasonik's Telli, Alan Cumming, and Nick Catchdubsare just a few. The indie-ironic clothing line has seen a huge influx of street exposure in recent months, with publicity on the rise.
