To begin with, the boy was born in Philippines, but when he was still a small boy his family moved to England. In 1983, he moved to New York City in the US.
Concerning his professional career, initially he worked at the clothing and skate shop Parachute. His first store Supreme was opened on Lafayette Street in New York City in midtown Manhattan, and rapidly became the heart of New York City’s skateboard culture in 1994. At first, it was a gang of young rebel New York skaters and artists who became both the staff and customers of the store. Their logo is a red rectangle in which is inscribed in the name of the mark in white with the typography Futura Heavy Oblique; the first T-shirts were just white with the logo in the middle of the model name of the T-shirt is: Box Logo, which established the brand and James’ net worth.
The brand is also known for its numerous collaborations with other brands, such as Nike, North Face, Vans, Timberland or Louis Vuitton. Today, there are other Supreme stores in London, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo (Harajuku & Daikanyama), Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka, and recently Brooklyn where a store opened in 2017. The brand has specialized in hip-hop, punk rock and skateboarding. The brand also has a skate team. The brand remains very discreet, as is its founder. Unlike other clothing brands, which publish their new collections all at once, Supreme only launches a few items at a time, usually five to fifteen. This drop occurs online and in store once a week, and is obviously effective as usually everything is sold out in a few minutes. This strategy maintains the aura of media beat that the brand creates.
In 2017, James Jebbia announced that the private equity firm Carlyle Group has acquired significant stakes in the skateboard brand – it should be about 50 percent of shares of financial investor Carlyle to have paid about $500 million. The value of the Supreme brand is estimated at over $ 1 billion. Supreme is the major source of James Jebbia net worth.
Finally, in the personal life of the businessman, he is married and has two children.
