Brand History

Ksubi (pronounced as “sooh-bee”) is an Australian lifestyle brand established in 1999 by Gareth Moody, Dan Single, George Gorrow, Paul Wilson and Oscar Wright. Initially known as Tsubi, the brand was created after the brand’s cofounders grew extremely dissatisfied with the kind of quality they get from jeans that are sold in the market. They hated the quality, the fit and the cut so they decided to put their thinking caps on and started their own denim wear brand. Tsubi grew immensely popular in its native Australia that by 2002, the brand made its international debut with fashion displays held in an abandoned tube station in Aldwynch. Tsubi was then carried by Selfridges Department store in London, alongside Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and Givenchy.

In 2006, Tsubi changed its name to Ksubi after the brand went global. By 2010, the brand has acquired three clothing labels under its name, Bleach, Something Else and Insight clothing brands. Today, Ksubi is known for its affordable eyewear. Ksubi eyewear is sold in selected stores including online at Karmaloop.com. Ksubi 225x300 Ksubi
