All My NY ni99az know wat I'm talking bout......

hell yea....i used to rack up down there. the funny s**t was alot of what cats thought were knock-offs were the real joints, just cheap-ass hell, really shows how these companies r*pe n*ggas. on topic tho, i still rock jerseys cuz imma a huge sports fan and its all about reppin teams and players that i like in the 1st place. i was rockin them joints before it became a fad and i'll always rock'em.

Everyone wearing the knockoffs Mitchell & Ness messed the game up. They just weren't as exclusive anymore like someone mention above. The bootleggers k!lled the Brett Favre Atlanta Falcons Jersey. What really tripped me out is when I see some old guy with a knockoff that just has a city no name with 00 rocking them with some sandals and swear they were fresh and in style.

the fake throwback game/knock offs flooded the market, thus making people sour

sort of like Bapes (which were always garbage) died as soon as fakes/knock offs were everywhere

most dudes are only concerned with how exclusive their s**t is, so if all of a sudden everyone has their s**t they're off that
Definitely agree with you on this one. Man once throwbacks started to show up in the streets heavy you could really tell the real from the fake. Bootleggers k!lled that s**t really.

^^^just like Jordans are now. with the bootlegging and all that
And to add to the point of artists contributing to what people wear, DFB tried getting people of jerseys and on to the "white tee" phase. Whatever works for you, but i can't be thinking i'm fresh with a plain white tee. it is what it is. Plain

lol seriously, I like Jay-Z but wow. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around one musician deading a fad.
it wasn't just that... everywhere u looked someone was rockin a throwback then the fake ones started popping up... once a style becomes popular then it starts to die.

i dont wear jerseys...im 30 plus...give me a crisp pait of jeans....n*gga, button ups


i swear it was like over night that the clubs that allowed throwbacks a week ago, automaically started enforcing a strict dresscode


but i also think all the made up teams and negro-league throwbacks became corny after a while

I'll tell you why, OVER-SATURATION.

Throwback jerseys (and jerseys in general) used to be somewhat of a rarity, then once everybody started to wear them all the time it became (like a couple other people said) a fad. People started to wear them just for the f**k of it. I was talkin' to one of my boys who had a throwback Clyde Drexler, he didn't even know who the f**k he was.

With my fresh white air forces realll baggy a.ss jeans lookin like juelz santana in his old dipset videos lmao. Had the whole fit for that lmao

Some are still cool once in a while, as long as they aren't excessively baggy and you are in shape.

cause of over saturated pop bulls**t, really, just like du rags, why doesnt any one rock du rags, style is only hot when its not overly saturated because its style, if you love a pair of Jordans and nobody has em, you would wear them when ever you wanted to stand out and look right, right? So if one day you went out and you 15 other people rocking your shoes you probably would feel the need to buy a new pair/different color,

Its just people jump on fashion fads because they want to keep up with the jones, all the idiots in this thread talking about " I still rock em cause Im fresh and everybody was fake" n*gga please if thats what you want to wear then do by that all means but quit with the "Im real" garbage cause if you was you wouldnt rock them s**ts at all you would be rocking some s**t that nobody else wears , you rock em cause they used to be hott, and now that they not you feel you can still pull it off and look like you doing something if the joint is fresh and clean.

And also my 2 cents

White boys k!ll fashion thats the other secret reason.........I think they are called "Wiggas" shhhhhhhhhhhhhh dont tell nobody

jerseys went out b/c it was over manufactured... at first getting the oldest throwback was cool, but when jerseys stopped becoming expensive and every team had a throwback of every player, ppl stopped caring... basically a fad.

i wear mine to games and outside activities.... that's about it.

because women realized its not a good look to be seen with grown a.ss men who dress like they're 14 years old
I saw a bad a.ss chick with a n*gga at the club this past thursday with a jersey on and this isn't only time I seen him and her together, and he was rocking a throwback. Throw logic out the window and don't a.ssume anything.
