Personally, I liked it better (for the most part) "back then". Flashier and hip hop actually had it's own identity with the clothing. Too conservative now and not as fun imo.

well for regular people that aren't rappers this era is better. but for rappers the old days were way better, just throw on a hoodie, baggy jeans and timbs. f**got rappers nowadays think they're fashion models making terrible music yet selling because of their image. hip hop isnt a fashion show

I still dress like it's '94, '95. Don't you let me find a Helly Hansen jacket I like. Don't you dare!

Either way, things weren't silly baggy until about 2005/2006 when kids were doing the 4X Tall tees from Foot Locker dirty.

i like it better now for the following reasons

1.) hip hop fashion was about the "thug look" for the longest time. And its kinda hard being a surburban cat but wanting to fit in with the hip hop look...but it don't necessarily look right on you because you aren't thuggish in the least bit.
2.)Back then, it was ALL about the brand. Whether it was the Tommy Hilfiger era, to the rocawear and all that era...it was exclusively about the brand. And with the brand, comes a price tag. I remember breaking my pockets to have iceberg. Now that its almost corny to rock "brands" you can make a fit from anywhere. You can go somewhere and get something inexpensive and as long as the fit of it is correct, and the quality is good, and the kicks is on point, then you straight.
3.)right now, you gotta rely on creativity. you can't use brands to "save" you anymore. Right now is where the lines are being drawn between those with fashion sense and those who dont.

Me personally, I take some of the stuff I like from the 90s, and kinda update it for now. Wallabee's was huge when wu was really poppin, so i copped them for now. I like the old school nautica jackets from back in the day, so I might get one now...just not in the 4xl sizes I used to have in the past.

Na u got it wrong... Big white tees were never trendy early on.... before then it was whatever under your designer shirt.... Then in the early mid 2ks is when folks was just going out rocking crispy white tees cuz it looked clean... The Mid 90's was when s**t was really huge..... I remember back in like my sophmore year.... my boy rocked size 40 Jeans.... N we not talkin about size 40's of today.... back then they made strictly baggy style so they were massive....

What happened was in the 2k's early 2k's ud'e see alotta sloppy suburban or trailer trash kids trying to get into that look, late.... and wearing super exaggerated sizes.. n*ggas has polo shirts lookin like 6x white tees..... like

As a matter of fact. One of the things u still see today but it's even sadder and actually pisses me off, cuz it's soooo lame and corny..... Is n*ggas rocking jeans baggy or tight hanging below their a.ss strapped around their thighs by a belt walking like they have a deficiency like their cool..... I wanna just drop kick'm

Nah, I don't have it wrong. You actually elaborated on what I said. Only thing you added was the suburban/trailer trash aspect. I don't have too much experience with those frauds. I lived in Brooklyn most of my life.

Mid-90s, yeah, some of the clothes were big. You can look to Kris Kross videos and Onyx videos to see how those clothes were draped over those skinny dudes. That came back in full effect in the mid-2000s with the Foot Locker tees. It was sparked by dudes with monstrous Mitchell & Ness jerseys -- who'd end up taking it off halfway through the day because they didn't want it to get dirty. So now they were just walking around with big tees.

But the 90s had a mix between stupid baggy and loose. It's hard to picture now because the definitions have changed ever since Kanye West flipped everybody into Polo knits and Louis V. backpacks (lol, btw).

Then again, my definitions are different because I'm a big dude.

most of the fashion today with the tight jeans, bright colors & tight "artsy" shirts trying to bring back the 80s just comes off as corny to me & doesnt really have as much of its own hip hop identity like im guessing the baggy style did in the 90s.

My problem is how just like music alot of brands have lost their distinction.... There are some still around but it's like every brand trys jumping on whatever works for one company.... s**t pisses me off...

Plus back in the 90's i could walk into a hip hop shop and fiend for alotta s**t. These days i walk into an urban clothing shop and find myself almost forcing myself to enjoy a design or clothing article... s**t is mad lame and lacking creative detail...

i have this book called the wu-tang manual (written by rza) and there's a section on the 'proper rocking of gear'. rza says pants must be at least size 38 no matter how skinny you are, and tops must be at least xxl. lol, i kinda wish rap went back to that. bring back the grimey s**t

Wait a minute, there is a difference between fitted and tight, slim jeans are not fitted those are f**king tight... and there is a difference between baggy and loose, most hip-hop artist were wearing loose jeans and still do now, 50 em jay nas etc... even alot of new artist drake, j cole wiz khalifa are not on that tight jean s**t, that tight fitted look is just a small trend in the young hiphop community, but most people still wear loose jeans not fitted or tight..... n*ggas like lil wayne juelz , jim jones etc... were wearing ridiculousy baggy jeans and now have switched to tight, those are artist who never had their own identity and followed trends... but you have to think the fitted tight look is just a throwback to the 80's hiphop look were people wore tight or fitted clothes so it is not new it is a trend that came back it is not exactly in style cause most people still look at peoples jeans and think "why are his clothes so tight?" or back then "why are his clothes so baggy?"
