The [Recycld] Patchwork Sweatshirt is constructed from overstock sweatshirts purchased from a local manufacturer and unused scrap fabrics. The sweatshirt is dyed by hand, and all patches are sewn on in Los Angeles, CA. The fabric used for the patches will vary on each product sold. This item will be made to order given the complexity to make.
Further details on our current project:
This collection of items is composed of old scraps from previous releases. Why use old scraps? Textile waste occupies 5% of all landfill space, and currently only 15% of post consumer textile waste is reused. Essentially, clothing manufacturers and corporations produce mass amounts of product, which is followed by mass amounts of waste. As we continue to grow, we want to set a precedent to be environmentally conscious at all times. Additionally, the term "scraps" isn't reflective of the quality; please rest assured that all pieces are clean and have been preserved in our facilities.
The “GROW UP” Crewneck is hand-dyed by our team and features a cluster of art across the front resembling the internal thoughts about “growing up”. Each one is made by hand resulting in the dye being unique every time (just like you). All products featured in this mini-collection are inspired by our earliest work. Color selections and garment designs reflect our beginning stages, but with enhanced techniques we have recently learned. As we continue to prepare for our next big release, we have taken time to develop better processes and techniques; and we want to give you all a taste of what’s to come. We love you all, Live Unxpectd!

Disclaimer: The production of this item is currently ongoing. Production will finish and shipping will begin within a week of the release. Following completion of production, shipping will be completed within 3 days, meaning your order will leave our facility within 10 days of purchase. We are a group of teenagers making big gains to better our infrastructures; but we still have room to improve, so please be patient with us!
The “180 Degrees” Hoodie features a dye pattern resembling lava, and is complimented by our classic embroidered logo rotated as hot as the hoodie looks. Each one is made by hand resulting in the dye being unique every time (just like you). All products featured in this mini-collection are inspired by our earliest work. Color selections and garment designs reflect our beginning stages, but with enhanced techniques we have recently learned. As we continue to prepare for our next big release, we have taken time to develop better processes and techniques; and we want to give you all a taste of what’s to come.

The “Coral” Mascot Hoodie is a hand-dyed piece by our team featuring our classic “Mascot” logo embroidered on the center. The satin-stitched polyester thread provides a slight glimmer to elevate the embroidered aesthetic and beautifully compliments the tie-dye work.
The “Grass” Shorts are constructed from a rug styled fabric we accidentally found in downtown Los Angeles. The unconventional use was streetwear clothing, but Unxpectd is all about the unconventional and diverted use of surrounding resources. Nonetheless, art cannot be kept inside, you must let nature sculpt your thoughts, and take inspiration from your ever-changing surroundings.
The “UNX Diamonds” Hoodie is made with a heavyweight, loose construction and is beautifully decorated with 120 crystals spelling out “UNX”. The picture, unfortunately, will never give this hoodie the justice it deserves. The shiny look of crystals in light makes this piece one of our best.
Description: The “Mascot in Black” Hoodie is constructed using 14oz fleece fabric fully made in the USA with domestic textiles, supplies, and labor. The concept of the design is to preserve simplicity with the tone on tone look, while still allowing creativity in the patched elbow puff prints. The garment is beautifully made; and although simple, the process of curating the correct style and fit was lengthy and intensive.
