AKOO Clothing was founded in 2008 by multi-platinum rapper Clifford "T.I" Harris,
entertainment mogul Derek Geter, and prestigious fashion mogul Ralphy Reynolds.
It's reported T.I. wanted to create the Urban fashion range to fit
his diverse needs from entertainment to the business board room. As a result,
AKOO clothing has pieces sharp enough for Denzel Washington on the red carpet to Hip-Hop trendy
wear teens love.
AKOO, the clothing line's brand name, is an acronym.
Of Oneself is what it means
and symbolizes. An assumption, T.I. probably wanted the name to represent how he's channeled
his life energy towards positive things, conquering various obstacles to succeed.
According to co-founder and Creative Director Ralphy Reynolds, AKOO denim jeans are the best
in Urban fashion hands down. A fashion mogul that's been working behind the scenes over a
decade, he reports all Akoo denim is produced in Japan by the best manufacturers
known. Ranging in price from $70 to $200 generally, Akoo Jeans have unique washes and fray
patterns that have stormed Hip-Hop and Streetwear fashion cultures.
Below is a video of C.KHiD in 2009 with Ralphy Reynolds at "Striver's Row" boutique which is
owned by Derek Geter and wife "Tia." Akoo clothing held their new collection's launch during the
2009 BET Awards weekend in Atlanta, Georgia.
