Derivation of The Prestige

Sir Sway: Many people have been asking how Mr. Mobile and I came across the name “The Prestige” and although the definition and the use of the word has been implemented to explain reputation and lavishness, we however, did not have that in mind when picking the name.  As you know, Mr. Mobile and I both love music and strongly feel that fashion is a progression and not simply just a historical trend.  The Prestige was a record company founded by Bob Weinstock that produced strictly Jazz musicians such as Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, and John Coltrane.  Jazz, now known as America’s favourite music, was primarily shunned upon.  It was through the underground movement and the passion of individuals that made it the most prestigious/historically-filled music genre.  The Prestige was part of the biggest movement in society and now we believe that as more and more people are accepting the fashion industry, there is that same passion for self-expression and the craving for something different that’s driving it.
