Thanks, I've been recommended that book quite a lot!This book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Streetwear-Insiders-Guide-Steven-Vogel/dp/0811860361/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?s=book... should help w/ your Thesis it basically has background info on every streetwear brand that ever mattered. As far as what attracts me to a brand personally it's really all about how the stuff looks the designs/colors they use etc. I won't rock a brand who I feel uses stupid or gimmicky designs.Originally posted by Inactive UserSorry to weigh in on this if it seems irrelevant but I've been reading the thread because I'm doing a dissertation/thesis on streetwear brands, the consumption and marketing of it etc. I'm quite new to it all and would love to discuss topics like what introduced you to these sort of brands e.g. Stussy, Obey, or even newer brands and what attracts you to specific ones. Do you find it's mostly through music, skating or just the people you've been around? What's the culture like surrounding it? How far do you go to find limited edition or vintage gear that no one else has? Or is it simply about the clothes.
Also, please don't reply to this is you're going to be a dick about it, trying to be productive here! Thanks!
