  • People have already posted what I had in mind for streetwear so I'm gonna drop these.

    Siouxsie pretty much started and set the standard for goth fashion for women, which has then gone to influence and define an obscene amount of popular culture.

    And then Robert Smith came and did the same for menswear (although a lot of women dressed like him too, making the goth thing more and more androgynous). Once again the influence is pretty much impossible to quantify.

    to follow up @Mandolin_Man , everyone ought to read up on the late downtown community legend Jimmy Webb. Absolute legend whose style work for Bieber/Wayne/Bey/Ye/Frank pales in comparison to the amount of work he did for Iggy pop, Elton John, Debbie harry, Duff McKegan, Slash, Cyndi Lauper, Joan Jett and thats only the beginning. He was often lauded as the king of st. marks for his work at trash and vaudeville but it was when he opened up his own shop on Orchard "I Need More" in his final years where I met him, and he treated me like family - reciting stories of the artists mentioned to the point of tears.

    I will never meet someone whose blood was entrenched in culture in the way Jimmy's was. In his final months I crossed paths with him multiple times a week since his apartment was right next door to my campus, and he told hardly anyone about his cancer diagnosis until the very end. you wouldn't know it - the interviews below is who he was and more in real life, a true definition of someone who radiated impenetrable positivity. Anyways, sorry I derailed I got inspired. Here's vids if anyone's interested:

    Ye def not taking credit for polo. Maybe wearing polo a little closer to like prep style/white ppl style but polo been a part of hip hop fashion since the 90s but they just wore it differently and went for diff style pieces

    did you go to those early Webster hall shows in 2013/14? iirc you were pretty active in the streetwear-adjacent scene during that time on ktt1
