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.
