Ronnell Shaw founded TYSEN MAXWELL URBAN COUTURE JEANS in 2007 with the idea of filling a clear void in the denim market by focusing on fit, style and fabrication. The label is named after his son, Tysen Maxwell Shaw. Made in Los Angeles, the brand reflects personal style and the categories urban couture and gentleman street.

With the brand being stylish and fashion forward but not trendy, Tysen Maxwell takes a unique, fresh, and much needed approach to the current urban contemporary market. The brand appeals to men who are looking for a great fit that cannot be found in existing labels. We offer an extended size range that caters to both the regular fit customer, and what Tysen Maxwell considers, the special fit customer (aka tall & athletic). Our design team is dedicated to producing the best fitting apparel line for men who want to attain a certain look, but because of their size or body frame need special cuts.

Tysen Maxwell is always looking to keep in touch with the consumer. Our blog page allows the consumer to write poems or creative thoughts that could possibly be used as the poem in the waist band of our signature pair of jeans.


SpiritHoods is the brand that brought you the trend setting faux fur animal hoods, following the company’s launch in 2009.

Every SpiritHood is made by hand in Los Angeles. So much detail is put into each piece, with no two hoods exactly the same. The company prides itself on its quality product; in order to guarantee that quality, their in-house QC staff is tasked to oversee all aspects of the production process.

SpiritHoods was founded by four best friends, – Chase Hamilton, Alexander Mendeluk, Marley Marotta and Ashley Haber; the company represents a lifestyle of self-expression, adventure, travel, fashion, culture, music, festivals, self empowerment, generosity, freedom, fun and most importantly, community - The Tribe. The SpiritHood is a symbol of that lifestyle.


SpiritHoods was founded and inspired by the relationship that we as humans have with the animal world. We believe in inspiring positive change and we can all help! The charity ProBlue® was founded at our company’s inception. When you purchase a SpiritHood with the ProBlue® logo, we donate 10% of net profits to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping a particular animal. One of our major goals is to educate people on the importance of helping these animals; as we empower our customers to help make a difference. Helping ProBlue® is the cornerstone of SpiritHoods, and, as we grow, it will remains at the forefront of our priorities.
