If you're going to get defensive, down vote, or whatever, just ignore this. I'm just interested in being informed. I don't want to rub anyone the wrong way.Cus the shit looks tight
I'm not judging. I just surmised--perhaps incorrectly--that most people here and most of Supreme's clientele aren't religious (attend church, read scriptures, etc.). With that in mind, if you like the Jesus piece, Sabbath shirt, Virgin Mary shirt, and other religious pieces, why is that? Put another way, why are religious-themed clothing and paraphernalia popular? The interest in these items seems weird. Gary Lawrence, an American opinion pollster, surveyed Americans and found that "on the subject of religion Americans in general are "deeply religious" but "profoundly ignorant." For example, 68% said they prayed at least several times a week, and 44% said they attended religious services almost every week. At the same time, only half could name even one of the four Gospels, most could not name the first book of the Bible, and 10% thought Joan of Arc was Noah's wife (Gary Lawrence, How Americans View Mormonism, Parameter Foundation, Orange, Calif., 2008, supra at p. 40)." I'm cognizant that there are people on Hypebeast from other countries than the US, and that people on Hypebeast might be more informed than the general public.
Keep in mind I've never have friends that wear Supreme or are into street wear, I don't really listen to rap/hip-hop, and I'm aloof to its culture.
OP i have the same question. Really bugged me last year like why are all these posers copping last supper hoodie ? What does it mean to you, why do you choose to wear that ? I thought it was ironic at first but more i think these hypebeasts see religious imagery as an expression of their personal "on some next level illuminati you-aint-know bout this" attitude. An attempt to show sophistication by appropriating the occult, the divine. juxtaposing themselves with deities.
a few individuals might have their own unique reasons but for 99% of the beasts they're just tryna come off complex
