Atticus is a brand of clothing founded in 2001 by Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge of Blink-182, and their childhood friend Dylan Anderson.

Atticus Clothing is available at its flagship store in Los Angeles, the atticusclothing.com webstore, Hot Topic (USA), Play.com (UK), Imperial (Germany) and leading streetwear stores worldwide.
