  • In 2005, Supreme released a graphic t-shirt featuring stockbroker Igor Kotlyar as he’s arrested in a box logo. The original image was taken in 2003, after FBI detectives busted Kotlyar and his crew for bilking $2.5 million in fraudulent software shares. As a result, ensemble was hailed into federal court on 51 counts of conspiracy and security crimes, as well as wire and mail fraud. Via telephone, the five ‘brokers’ were able to trick 31 investors into buying company shares, finding Kotlyar guilty with 5 years of prison, 36 months of home confinement, 42 concurrent weekends of intermittent confinement at a halfway house and 30 days of residential substance abuse treatment. Violating these terms, he would then be serve an additional 9 months of imprisonment, paying hundreds of thousands in restitution and fines. This event would spark Supreme’s infamous slogan ‘Illegal Business Controls America’, which debuted on the underside of the t-shirt.


    Debuting in the OG Spring 2007 collection, this full print hoodie reads ‘Illegal Business Controls America’. Plastered atop a navy blue zip-up base, silver hardware runs throughout in contrast to white full print lettering. Leeching from the body to the sleeves and hood, this sweater has become an incredibly lucrative iteration of the IBCA graphic, having been reduxed a decade later in Spring 2018. In pristine condition throughout, tagged as a size medium.
