LOS ANGELES — Apparel from YouTuber Connor Franta's lifestyle brand Common Culture will soon be sold at Urban Outfitters.

Franta, 24, announced the partnership on YouTube Friday.

As part of the deal, the retailer will distribute five exclusive pieces from the clothing collection including a T-shirt, a sweatshirt, a hoodie and two baseball hats. They will be available for purchase at eight brick and mortar locations.

Proceeds from the collection, which launches on Nov. 29, will benefit nonprofit GLSEN, which champions safe and affirming school systems for LGBTQ individuals.

“I’ve been a big fan of the brand for so long,” Franta said in his announcement video. “I’m just excited to hopefully crossover audiences and see if people take to the Common Culture clothing that don’t already know of it.”

Franta already has an impressive resume. He wrote a book, participated in a presidential debate, launched a music label, run his own camp and released a subscription service that offers paying customers a 12-ounce bag of premium coffee beans on a bi-monthly basis.

Franta shared his excitement about the news on Twitter.
