Famous Stars and Straps (or simply Famous) is an American clothing and accessory line created by blink-182 drummer Travis Barker in December 1999. The company is based in Ontario, California.

Famous Stars And Straps clothing is influenced by music genres such as punk rock and hip hop. Since their initial boom, Famous has become a respected brand in the skate, BMX, and motorcycle arenas with sponsored riders like Rick Thorne, Dave Dillewaard, and Luis Tolentino. Their stylized "F" logo, known as the "Badge of Honor", has quickly become synonymous with the brand.

Based in Ontario, California, Famous specializes in tee-shirts, jackets, hats, and other accessories, but also sell shoes branded as the FMS shoe line.

FSAS clothing has been worn by many celebrities including Barker himself, Barker's band mates Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, skateboarders Jereme Rogers and Manny Santiago, B-Real of Cypress Hill, Sonic Syndicate, Tim Armstrong, Rob Aston, Lil Jon, Roger Argenis, Phil Court, Craig Fairbaugh, DJ Premier, Cassidy, Paul Wall, Birdman, The Game, Adil Omar, Kim Kardashian, Eminem, Yelawolf, Hopsin, Lady Sovereign, Steve Jocz of Sum 41, and Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas (who wore the clothing on the cover of DUB Magazine).
