James Early Career
Jebbia had a successful career as a child actor in the late 1970s, playing Tommy Watson in the first season of Grange Hill. Jebbia’s first position in New York was at Parachute in 1983. It was minimalist clothes and skate shop in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. He oversaw the Union NYC streetwear store in 1989, which sold a variety of predominantly English apparel labels. Its initial location in Manhattan, on Spring Street, first opened in 1989 before closing in 2009. He collaborated with Shawn Stussy, the creator of the clothing line Stüssy, from 1991 to 1994.
Supreme, a clothing line and skating store, was founded by Jebbia in 1994. The company’s initial location was established on Manhattan’s Lafayette Street. One of his first creations was a pair of cut-and-sewn cargo pants with tiger stripes. Supreme has 13 locations worldwide as of 2021, including six in Japan (Harajuku, Shibuya, Daikanyama, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka) and one each in New York City, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris. The first collection created in partnership between Supreme and Louis Vuitton in 2017 was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week. High-profile artists like Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, and Richard Prince have worked with Jebbia.
Excellent skater apparel, superior skateboards, and accessories for skaters are all associated with the brand supreme. The business routinely hires avant-garde artists to create the skateboard designs, such as Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, and only produces a small number of each item. By reducing production costs, they have attempted to maintain prices fair.
Jebbia, a businessman, and Bianca are a happy couple, and Nina and Miles are the two children born to the couple. The entire family resides in his home in New York City’s West Village, part of Lower Manhattan. R
