The State Of Streetwear

^^^yea i think exclusivity is essential...i look at fashion as an artform...an extension of visual art almost the same way our tastes in film or music are probably unique to mainstream tastes...our tastes for fashion are unique to what the mainstream follows and probably are more acute and less fickle streetwear allows fashion/consumerism to be a bit more personal or at least a little more reflective of who you are as a person and what you appreciate aesthetically (in terms of colors, shapes, forms.) In the same way a poem or sing can articulate the way you feel better than you could verbally... a creative or witty shirt can do the same as far as visual expression which i think is really cool. I was reading an article the other day about how Nigo in '99 limited production of Bape to Tokyo when he saw his brand next to brands like Tommy Hilfiger in stores. He was conscious of overexposure and understood the role exclusivity plays in brand management. Say what you want about him but i think him and OGs like Hiroshi Fujiwara's ideologies on this streetwear shi as far as exclusivity is concerned captures the true essence of what its about... i just think its amazing how those dudes were inspired by the freshness of hip-hop in the 80's...they transfered that energy to fashion and now i'm equally inspired by them...its as if energy comes full-circleblushing

Damn yo! UPS shipped my Hundreds order to wrong addy

so an order from the Hundreds was scheduled for delivery today...i check my email and it says i received the package only i received no package! The frustrating part is on all emails containing the shipping info the address is correct...than on the delivery confirmation email from UPS...it says 111 Country Terrace instead of 1111 Country Terrace...someone named "Doug" signed for my shiit ?) So either The Hundreds or UPS (probably the latter) messed the address up and now i gotta sort this mess out! this ever happen to anyone?

Kid Gets Put On Blast For Fake Jordan V's

shits lame. *****s should be at school trying to learn and their acting like the fashion police or some shit. I wouldn't rock fake sneakers but putting someone on blast who probably can't afford them shits is just shallow and corny.

Whats up with Lupe Fiasco's clothing line

[Quote] comparing Lupe and Pharrell is like comparing apples to oranges. They're both absolutely remarkable artist but the two serve two completely different purposes musically and fill two different voids/niches.
