just wondering how everyone here discovered or became involved in the streetwear scene.
as for myself, I honestly don't even know. I think one day i just happened to stumble across DG while browsing the net & began getting interested in the individual brands & what not. of course this was waaayyy before DG sorta blew up. but i do credit that site with somewhat getting me involved in the scene.
I was in 10th grade, got into it with a bitch, and I needed a way to clear my head. So I took a walk from Los Angeles High School down to La Brea, and spotted a store by the name of Stussy, and UNDFTD. I walked in to peep the environment, and what account holders were in here because it was totally different from what I have ever seen. Kept walking, and found Union. At that time, all I knew about was Bathing Ape. So went in and asked a guy by the name of Chris Gibbs, "What's up with the clothing in here? I'm clueless about all this shit!" I sat down, and he told me everything. SB's at the time were 30.00, and tees were $40-50 a pop! BLAH BLAH BLAH! I WORK FOR ROGUE STATUS NOW!
