Neither have you .......... "2 Black Guys" been around for ages.
Mary J even rocked one of their baseball jerseys in her early 90's
music video.

They went away for a while but i think their new stuff was sold at Ransom.
100 miles is another Toronto Brand thats been around for a while.

Cant think of much others with relevance.

that's definitely one worth mentioning.

As far as the mid-late 90's goes, some folks might remember Boro Brand. Still going on a very small scale.

And finally, last but not least. IRIS.

Looks like you are correct , as well as myself.
Dont know how they use "Too" and "2" But they do .......... My
deepest heartfelt appologies to the person i corrected with sarcasm.
I owe you a happy meal my friend.

I didnt remember them using "Too" in the 90's but it looks like they did , you
can see even in the Mary Video i spoke about. As well on alot of other
pieces. I just dont understand how they call it "Too Black Guys" does it mean
Too many black guys or something of that nature ??

Offbeat is launching in 2008 straight out of T dot. Not mainly streetwear but a blend of the skate culture mixed in with the streetwear culture.

I read in either an old source magazine fashion editorial or peace mag from the 90s that, though it is originally "Too Black Guys", it has been called "2 Black Guys" as well due to the fact that two cats were running the label. I dunno maybe it was just a witty catchy title for the article but me personally owning original pieces from the 90s, more noteably a vest from the 90s with the "2" logo kinda makes me think it can go either way. but whatever, the brand it is now is far from what it was and caters to a much more hypebeast streetwear scene yet still carries a pretty significant concept which is good.

After The dreams pointed it out ....... You can also see they use the
number 2 and then the wording "too" in it as well. Like in those
hockey jersey type things ............... Either way i stand corrected
somewhat.

What did ever happen to the one clothing ?? I remember going to
Asian jams and every wannabe breakdancing Philipino would be rocking one ,
either on their back or their head. . . .. . . ................

Hi, I started a brand about a year ago called "Ocean and Lake"
The
brand pretty much represents how apart of me feels I have the abilities
to move forward with my skills and success which translates to going to
the Ocean. Apart of me on the other hand, feels even with the success
I've come across in my life, I still need to stay put, perfecting my
craft and just being happy with where I am in life right now.
To some the brand :
"Today, a year ago, everything was entirely different"

heres a sample tee of one of my brands design.
Titled Ocean:
The
idea was too get the name across to people. I found that varsity looks
and university designs really got its point across to people. Clean and
simple -- I have much more detail in explanation but I'd rather not give
too much to read on here.
open to thoughts and criticisms, remember it's only a sample.
