Description:

FUBU first got its clothing into a small store on Jamaica Avenue (in Jamaica, Queens) called Montego Bay. It was their first introduction to having their clothes in stores. They were then able to get their clothing line into Macy's department store. It was a huge success; at one point, Macy's featured the four FUBU founders in a live, interactive window display in Manhattan.
