You'd be forgiven if you thought the collaborative Fairfax Hoodie from John Elliott and 424 refers to the world-famous streetwear mecca that the latter calls home. And while 424 does take its name from the brand's street address on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, that only accounts for half the equation. The other half has its roots in the Bay Area -- specifically, the town of Fairfax in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, where a young John Elliott grew up.
In terms of design, the pullover hoodie arrives in white or black, with distressed detailing and "FAIRFAX" inscribed across the chest in dark green chenille lettering. It's modeled here by Nick Young of the Golden State Warriors, an LA native who now calls the Bay Area home.
The Fairfax Hoodie will be available this Saturday, April 28th, at Barneys San Francisco, where John Elliott and 424 co-founder Guillermo Andrade will make an in-store appearance from 4 - 6 pm. A wider release follows May 1st at fourtwofouronfairfax.com and the brand's retail location on Fairfax.
