This is something I dont have much (or any) knowledge about, so thats why Im asking you!

What kind of (hip hop) clothing and styles were popular in the 80s? What about brands. Did it exist streetwear brands? What were their names? Any special styles that used to popular for only some months or years?

What was difference between early, mid, and late 80s hiphop fashion?

I know about the Back In The Days and A Time Before Crack books, but a little more detailed info on brands ++ would be great!

Finesse when I first saw the pic of the British walkers I said I know he can't still have those. But as I scrolled down I see you do. LMAO
Wow the name buckel, leather goose, and sheepskin were items I had. That clock wasn't for me.

If my memory serves me correctly by the time the 80's rolled around Lee's had been replaced by Sergio's, Jordache, Calvins and others. I guess I smoked too much back then because the fashion part of those times is a blur.

If they did it like they used to, I would still prefer the old school. L.E.S. for life

Watch out because the Female Pioneers are going to shake things up and set it off so prepare yourselves for the ride. 06/08

LOL. I love that sweatshirt. Got the Ultimate Warrior and PE logos, 2 of my favorites.. I wish I had kept mine. My DJ name is "DJ X-MAN" and I had this cartoon character of Xavier "X-MAN" McDaniels in a Knicks uniform.

Anybody remember fiending to buy a Troop outfit like LL or Hammer was rocking back then?

Being on tour with LL during the introduction of Troop wear,I had a few Troop jackets.Unfortunately rumors surfaced that the Ku Klux Klan funded and sponsered the clothline.
The rumors were never validated or denied.The word spread.
Troop never really recovered from that.
Need I say more...
