    Default Old school hip hop clothing brands.

    I saw someone wearing an Ecko hoodie today. They seem to be the only clothing brand that started in the 90s or earlier that I see occasionally. Does anyone else come across any of the classic hip hop attire?

    I was brainstorming some of the brands I remember. So far I got:
    Karl Kani, Cross Colurs, Pelle, Avirex, Phat Farm, State Property, Triple Soul, Rocawear, Esco, Fubu, Sean John, Lugz.
    I'm proably missing numerous brands , anyone else got any others?

    I still Rock Joker Brand, I cop it from eBay pretty often. Avirex leathers are usually pretty damn expensive on eBay. Been trying to cop some Antonio Ansaldi on eBay. That is E. Devious/Antonio Twice Thou of Almighty R.S.O./Made Men's clothing line. One guy at my job still wears a G Unit shirt

    One of my favorite shirts is an old faded Ecko shirt, its 10+ years old but very nice soft material.

    I see rocawear around still, they do baggy jeans and skinnies. I'm surprised that more new rappers don't have clothing brands out, seems like a much bigger market now.

    BAP & Phat Farm also come to mind.


    Nobody wears 90s brands here anymore. Too bad really.

    I didn't know Avirex was associated with Hip-Hop in some way.

    If new niggahz did have clothing lines, they would be all feminine any way, bad enough niggahz out here in Bronx wearing Crocs now and I know when it gets colder, they are going to start wearing UGGs again also. Niggahz walking around with purses draped over their shoulders, this is definitely not nineties anymore.

    Thrift stores and Burlington Coat Factory are good places to find old school hip hop clothing.

    That is straight up sad! lol

    I think Sean John should still be around back in the day that was the Versace of street wear IMO. Puff is too lazy though he puts in work then fades away after hes made money?

    They take used things, so you can find pretty much anything depending on where you go, I found a red Wu Wear coat in one back in 2005.
