The I.B. Blackman® Collection, one of the original urban lifestyle clothing brands, was founded in 1992. The goal was to create a designer brand with high end clothing and accessories for the urban community.

The name I. B. Blackman was inspired by the RUN DMC song “Rock Box”. In the song Run says “Calvin Klein is no friend of mind, don't want nobody's name on my behind.” That line inspired me to create an alias for myself. The alias would represent myself, a Black man. So I shortened “I am a Black man” and created the person/designer “I. B. Blackman”.

In addition to designing high end clothing and accessories this alias person/designer would promote racial harmony and stand up for social equality. This social consciousness is represented on the back of most of our t-shirts with this I. B. Blackman quote:

Prejudice, Racism, Bigotry and Supremacy are all strongly related to ignorance. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. So let's educate ourselves by getting to know and understand one another.

- I. B. Blackman

In 1994 I.B. Blackman® opened it's flagship store in Beverly Hills, CA on Beverly Drive. Today, the brand is available online and selected Boutique stores.

I.B. Blackman® ships worldwide and offers free shipping for orders $99 or more within the U.S.

Our goal is to deliver to you superior styling, quality and value. You will find our fabrics to be super soft and made to last. This approach has helped I.B. Blackman® achieve broad, mass appeal, worldwide.

I.B. Blackman® celebrates the essence of Classic American Cool and provides you with a new refreshing twist to the Hip-Hop influenced fashion genre. Our T-shirts feature socially conscious quotes on the back to inspire you and hopefully make this world a better place.

We stand behind our quality, we guarantee you will be satisfied with your new clothing or we will give you your money back!
