About

The Super S Stussy or simply “Super S” or “Stussy” is a symbol consisting of 14 lines that forms a stylized “S”. The symbol is typically drawn by children, usually on notebook paper during school hours.

Origin

It is unclear when or where the symbol originated, but many believe it is based off a logo for Stussy[1], a clothing company based in Irvine, California. However, others question that claim since there’s no irrefutable evidence that the symbol ever appeared on any of Stussy’s clothing lines and the symbol itself is believed to date back as far as the late 1950’s. Some believe the symbol was created by unknown graffiti artists in the past.

Spread

The Super S symbol became very popular in the 1980’s and 1990’s, and is considered a staple of the latter decade among those who grew up in that time period. However, many schools didn’t like students drawing the symbol and some schools would later ban it all together, usually in the belief that it was associated with gangs and was an distraction in class. To this day, the “Super S” can be seen drawn on notebook paper by children.
