Now see... people usually complain about just about every aspect of hip-hop music. This is the music I grown up with and still like [most of] this day and age. I'm not real big on these hip-hop influenced fashion, but I can at least relate to the music and the fashion style. And being here in Houston, a city that's usually deemed a real hip-hop city, and in being a a young black man, I can appreciate most of the urban fashion I've seen around the city. Even my brother has some Rocawear. He did get me a Fubu polo shirt this past Christmas.
People who really appreciate fashion are able to look beyond some of the basic exclusives and think about fashion in terms of good and bad for peoples' styles. I know most people would prefer rock over hip-hop (I'm the opposite), but fashion with a hip-hop theme has some advantages. Some of the women's clothing tends to favor a sexy, contemporary woman. Don't be surprised coming here to Houston to see some ladies sporting Apple Bottoms jeans (not very hard to find since they have the only jean pockets shaped like apples. Jennifer Lopez appeared on MTV's TRL sporting some sexy jeans paired with some cute peep-toe pumps. Some of the classier urban fashions tend to cater to the sexy lady never afraid to show off her curves. Perverted as the previous sentence may sound, some hip-hop style fashion really reveals the beauty of most ladies. * More casual styles tend to do more of the same thing. More downscale urban clothing tends to be more comfortable. I don't have anything like very wide-leg jeans or anything, but I do tend to feel a bit comfortable wearing my Fubu polo shirt or something like that.
Could this catch on and be a trend? Maybe. It's almost mainstream here in Houston where you have people into Houston folk like Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Swishahouse, Slim Thug, UGK, and stuff like that. But in the rest of the country? Perhaps. Maybe a movement of hip-hop would get rid of some of the rock sellouts. Nevermind the stereotypes associated with hip-hop. At least most people will have something to love with these hip-hop style fashions.
