UK/London Street Style of Yesteryear

Recommended Posts

Was digging around the web on a nostaglic one and came across this set of scans. Kinda crazy to read the equivalent on a Vice magazine street-style spread on styles nearly 30 years old. Labels like Stone Island & CP have obviously handed over from the Casual culture all the way through and remained solid staples, as well as the sportswear brands like Nike but other brands and styles have faded out. Interesting to look back at this stuff.

 

There's me thinking the Hypebeast hipsters had pinrolling down, when really it was man like Percy aka Medusa from North West who was setting them trends. Amazing photography and a good write up. Images are high res..

Full article and more pics here:

What happened to Chipie :lol:

The Vikings shoes are an absolute drop. They need to resurrect these. Chevignon could make a comeback for certain. The Londres K-TOGS is a wicked looking jacket, same one Medusa is wearing. They've re-released. Rather that than a Canada Goose.

Look like Louis Vuittons or some sh*t. Very fresh.

Looking like Air Yeezy's crossed with Yeezy Boots. Vikings had some mad designs, I can't front - look good quality too.

 

Neg if you want. Northern Stanis probably copied this drop from London man badly and spawned Rockports.

These were the drop in 2000/2001 in my ends, can't from. Blame the Northern Stanis for influencing the Midlands ones.
