Created and owned by iconic Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, Famous Stars and Straps has been dressing So Cal's coolest for over 10 years, sporadically dabbling in the motocross industry throughout that time. Sponsored FMX rider and drummer aficionado Jimmy McGuire, Famous was able to get their widely recognizable "F" logo on a dirt bike, but have since been able to trump that feat in a big way by adding Jeremy 'Twitch' Stenberg to their "family" of athletes and celebrities. To celebrate his arrival, Famous gave Twitch his own mini-collection to kick things off.

WHAT IT IS:
Just like his past attire sponsor, Metal Mulisha, Famous is in the business of producing the standard array of casual wear as most of their catalog is made up of things like fitted hats, tees, hoodies, tanks, button ups, jackets, pants, shorts, board shorts, and of course ... booty shorts for the ladies. For his signature line, Famous and Twitch joined creative forces to come up with some pretty sick looking screen printed short and long-sleeve tees that let anyone in a 50-foot radius know that the person rocking the duds is a Twitch fanatic.

WHY IT RULES:
Let's face it; other than maybe Travis Pastrana, Twitch is the most recognizable active freestyle motocross rider on the planet. Besides his buttery smooth riding style, the tatted up rider has become a superstar thanks to his larger than life personality, unique looks and well-documented battle with tourette syndrome. Twitch's Famous collection captures all his steeze with nothing more than a simple screen print on a stylized shirt. If you're a Twitch supporter, there's no better way to show it than to rock one of his six signature shirts (they retail for around $30).

WHERE TO FIND IT:
The best place to cop the collection is directly from Famous Stars and Straps' online store. If you're not privy on sending your credit card number over the world wide web, you can roll into Tilly's at your local mall and cop the old fashioned way. If you don't have a Tilly's nearby, well then you may just have to pack up the minivan and trek out to the Famous offices in Ontario, California.
