Did you like hip hop fashion better in the early 2000s or do you prefer it now?

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

i agree. it suits rappers. it's kind of hard to take a rapper talking tough seriously when they got on an xs shirt and some skinny jeans.

Yea the funny thing is a couple days ago on my facebook one of my lil cousins said the same thing and she is 17 "It is hard for me to take you serious when your wearing a tight polo shirt skinny jeans and a snapback, that aint gangsta so stop acting like it"... s**t had me on the floor... but that is how girls look at these cats also

my n*gga fab had on tha skinny jeans n tha cant deny it video

baggy look was obviously better..now a days hiphop is just stealing everyone elses identity..my cuzzin and his friend made the switch to dressing like that around 03 04 and ill neva forget how much ppl use to clown them...we use to call it tha techno look coz all you'd need iz sum glow sticks and u fit the image..i understand the skinny jeans and fitted clothes is more acceptable in society bcuz u look less thuggish and more presentable...but its lame now coz everyones doin it..i memba ridin the train n seein a bunch of n*ggas n averexes and champion hoodies and if u goin downtown..u might spot that one black dude who dressed white

hiphop trend now and no1 in hiphop really wears skinny jeans except for wayne and tyga and a few others

its all about fitted clothing.. you look much more presentable especially to these older folks you won't look like a goon lol

I like todays fashion better. As a lean muscular ni99a I just like tighter fitting clothes better. But I switch up the tighter clothes with looser clothing sometimes cuz I'm fashionably versatile.

Sometimes for me its a hoodie, fitted and skinny jeans or looser jeans, ACGS or Tims and a t shirt with a skully or skinny jeans, button down, slip ons or nice shoes etc

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.

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.

right b..im 6 ft. 150...

wear size L in shirts, M if they run big nohomo, XL in jackets/sweaters etc.

size 33x34 or 34x34 jeans

which is what fits...no bunched/gathered up jeans in the front nohomo.

in the past i still used to wear 34x34 but the cuts were way more baggy. lol one of the pairs of school/work pants I had was 36x34..lmmfao


and i used to wear 3XL shirts/jackets. smh

Word, those just look like 514s to me.

I like my jeans skinny too, because it just looks cleaner to me.

I'm kind of a big dude, and I feel like baggy clothes on larger people just looks atrocious. I cop my jeans skinny (I call it slim, but I guess most view them as skinny) and my shirts just fitted.
