Dray most streetwear brands evolved from skateboarding brands not ghetto ass brands..Stussy can basically be the starter of all streetwear being a skate brand from the late 80's all through the 90's.. Supreme was part of the early 90's skate culture, which was inspired by stussy.. TheHundreds another streetwear brand where the owners were part of the skate culture.. And now most of these brands inspired other brands.. U also have your japanese streetwear brands such as Bape who paved the way for streetwear from late 90's but no one picked up on it til early 2000's.. Which then brands were inspired by them.. Non of these brand owners were rocking sean john,fubu, and etc.. Just cause u were rocking that shit a few years back and thought it was "poppin" and then just got into streetwear doesnt mean that they were the first streetwear brands.. Streetwear is a different culture than hood culture..


imo if streetwear was strictly skateboard culture why do they have hip hop artists and urban dialect? As for bape the owner rocks baggy clothes n shit and in my opinion marketed the bape shoes to hip hop culture.

dray its called reading.. Those brands were inspired by the skateboard culture in the 90's.. Because most of them were apart of it back then. Also if u skated back then, especially in the cities, hip hop played a part in skateboarding.. Im talking about real hip hop not garbage rap.. Bape wasnt marketed for rappers or hip hip, thats just who picked up on it after the years... Then they seen how much money was getting brought in em by them artists so they tarted marketing some stuff towards em(all over print) haha Also just for a history lesson dray, the 90's skate culture was all about baggy clothes...

'Streetwear' is a term coined by Japanese folks; it doesn't have anything to do with 'urbanwear'. Streetwear is clothing that people from the different street cultures wore i.e. skateboarders, DJs, graffiti artists, rappers, etc... and yes skateboarding back in the day was WAY more hip hop oriented (more minorities).

the problem is in your definition of skate culture, hip hop culture and streetwear. when YOU think of skate culture you think of emos and white kids. but in actuality it was as gritty as hip hop was in the 90s. the word streetwear makes you think of the hood because of the word "street" in it. there is no definite definition of streetwear other than the collective originality and creativity of the youth. but that can be argued by what it has become today.


Very well put

Supreme was made in 1994.. and Stussy a long ass time before. I think if anything the whole Supreme/ Stussy style blended with hoodrat and produced bastards like crooks and castles.

What about sportswear? you cant talk about streetwear without the influence of brands of nike/ Jordan addidas track jackets/shell toes fuck what about jerseys back in 1990's through early 2000's everybody was rocking a jeresy shit. Sportswear was the beginning of casualwear back in the early late 70's and 80's when casual wear started to change and become what it is today.

Clothes are clothes. A brand would be stupid to label itself. I'm sure the goal of most designers is to get their products seen and they don't care who wears it. Consumers are the ones quick to put things in a box. Stussy was just like Quiksilver...same shit back in the day. Designed for the California surf culture. Vans, for the skaters. Shit evolved and a different kind of people got attached to those products and that's how it all got labeled.

skating did not start "streetwear". Basketball was more a part of "streetwear" than skating at least on the east coast.
