Sorry 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!
music introduced me to new friends, these friends introduced me to the whole culture, before that i was a little kid wearing some Hot Wheels shirts and some shit from JC Penney's.
i liked the designs.
as for limited edition/vintage shit: rarely ever do i actively search this shit out, although i have a little mental list of long sold out clothes i'd cop the second the opportunity presented itself.
