break the chains


Renowned is a Los Angeles based brand created by John Dean III. Founded in 2011 in Ohio, Renowned tells stories for the dreamer on their journey towards the American Dream. As we navigate through life, we are going to feel like we are the best of the best just to be abruptly humbled by life itself. Renowned explores these ideas, desires, and realities by creating collections around this paradoxical idea of the American Dream. The Obstacles you face vs the feeling of achieving your dreams is present in every collection.

We tell the story for those kids inside us all, idealistic, unique, hopeful but most of all already destined for greatness… it’s just a matter of time.
