Founded in 2007 in Los Angeles by Michael “MEGA” Yabut and Alfred De’ Tagle, Black Scale clothing started with a collection of ready-to-wear clothes printed with the brand’s graphics. They created the concept by combining religion, identity, government, and death. Being inspired by the past, present, and future, interpreting street fashion in balanced energy, Black Scale carries its slogan BLVCK is Forever.

About Black Scale
Michael “Mega” Yabut and his partner Alfred De Tagle established Black Scale in 2007 with the concept of going dark and black. They wanted to have a line of clothes that is different from other brands, especially in the streetwear brands.
It was actually after a year that they came up with the name Black Scale. The name was meant to be mysterious that they opted for the letter “V” for “A” in Black Scale, thus the name BLVCK SCVLE. The graphics and designs came out as inspired by the old school underground metal bands and punk bands or death metal art.
During the first year, the company maintained an online store, but in 2008, the first retail store in Union Square was opened. Because of having a physical location, the brand becomes more popular. The company did collaborations with Burton, Greg Yuna, Demon Mailer, A Bathing Ape, Adidas, A$AP Rocky, Timberland, HUF, Stussy, and more.
