I was only talking about hip hop clothing... you see all the same brands out here. I'm assuming NY gets them first but you'll see gucci and chanel and Louis V out here. Bapes been played out tho... I'm assuming that's why you said not like back in 04.



Nice kicks btw. Now I'll have to match you lol

^Fila Sofisticatos... rediculously nice for the price ($25)

^People dont seem to realize how nice and relatively inexpensive Coogis are.

negro please.

i've been to almost every state in the u.s. and have lived in three different states (NE, SE, SW), recently.

it doesn't look like any place in america. that and we had all this ish first.

swear to God i could post the fall/winter 2012 line from lv and ppl would claim their city in the middle of nowhere has that fashion.

*edit*
when i mentioned bape, i'm not talking about the sneakers. nobody rocks them like that anymore and we haven't for years. i meant certain hoodies and certain tees. again, few and far between and nothing like 2003 and 2004, tho. i have one tee and one hoodie, for example. wouldn't do any more than that (and its not all over print either lol).

side note but nobody rocks all black and does it right like a female from ny. its a staple. i would have posted more pics but i thought that that was too many before i posted them.

looking at my post, i could have posted more and been good. i'll post more tomorrow.

eek this thread really isn't about who dresses better or whatever. I understand you're from NY and most of you seem to think your style is the best and no other city can compare and everybody wishes they could have it (which is really not the case by the way) but please don't start. I don't want this thread to get shutdown because of people arguing over the pettiest thing.

and really the pics you posted were ok. Some of the stuff you can see anywhere and others you can't. The only pictures I see that you posted that I know you wouldn't be able to see in Detroit is the girl with the green pants on and the last couple with the guys (starting from the guy with the ipod in hand) and thats really only because thats not our style. Everybody style is different. Just appreciate it and keep it moving. oh and the clear nikes because they been out of style here for a min.
