Biography Co-founded in 1999 in Santa Ana, CA, by Jonas Bevacqua and Robert Wright, Lifted Research Group (LRG) is a creative lifestyle clothing company. Jonas and Robert's vision was to design clothes that represented a variety of influences, a reflection of their environment and interests. Through LRG's success as a brand and inclusive group concept, it has become an outlet to express not only Jonas and Robert's ideas, but also a platform for others to do the same. LRG takes pride in discovering and uncovering new and emerging talent; supporting those that pursue their goals with the same passion that supported its own growth. This concept has always remained the same, it's one that LRG stands beside and looks to share with the world. At LRG we are what we make, we are who we support, and we'll never forget where we come from.
