Here's a question for older A-netters (30+), how many of you wore Stussy in the '90s?.. I sure as hell did, I had a blue Stussy Star hat that looked a lot like the Dallas Cowboys symbol. I loved that hat, I had like 3 or 4 Stussy hats, and several Stussy Tee shirts and Sweat Shirts.

I definitely remember Stussy! Most of the tshirts I wore underneat my high school dress code attire were Stussy t-shirts as well as Yaga. Yet I'm not sure if Yaga was known outside the Houston/Galveston area. The days of of Stussy, Yaga, and Titty Bingo, that just reminds me I've got my 15th HS Reunion coming up!  eek

I never did. Stussy was for preps and I was no prep. The black leather jacket gearhead crowd never wore stuff like that. Another thing we hated were "Mean People Suck decals" and anything with "No Fear" on it. We liked shirts with band names and cars on them.

Everybody knew the class of 95 was the class that ruled, the graffiti on the side of the school said so....  Silly

I am old enough to be in the class of 93, but that is another story for another day!

All the prep kids at work wear Ambercrombie and Hollister stuff. I remember when Ambercrombie & Fitch was a stuffy men's store that sold outdoor wear. They even made hunting jackets.

I believe they were a high-end outdoor fitter, and you could buy shotguns and rifles there as well. Somewhere along the line, something went very, very wrong and now they show male models almost naked on the side of buildings. Bring back the guns!!!  stirthepot 

I remember Stussy as well...almost 36. Class of '91 ruled.

Stussy and Yaga seemed like the same brand that was more into Caribbean beach wear, a bit quasi-Rasta.

Titty Bingo. They're actually a band. They had performed at the International Festival here in Houston and were giving away bumper stickers and you saw cars all over the city with said stickers, along with both "Visualize World Peace!" and "Visualize Swirled Peas!"

Oh yeah ... A&F back in the day. We never had the old school A&F, but there was one in New Orleans while I was doing my undergrad at Tulane. From boring stuff dads to now pre-pubescent preteens.  eek

I had a fair bit of Stussy stuff back in the day (early 90's). For a while there it seemed like just about every teenager in Melbourne wore Stussy pants, I even had a pair of grey Stussy shorts as part of my school uniform. Couldn't wear the pants to school as we had to wear grey slacks.... but the shorts were OK for summer. Ypu can still buy Stussy branded stuff here, mainly underwear, but some of the tshirts have come back as 'retro' items.

Hey that's funny, I was just about to post a similar thread about the brand Off Shore. Does anyone remember ? I tried to do some research on google but didn't find anything except from their logo... I remember buying a jacket in 1998 or 1999 and that's the last time I've ever heard of the brand. Any info will be gladly appreciated  Smile
Back to Stussy, I do remember the brand as well (I'm 34), but never had anything from that brand. It wasn't popular in France and I guess only sold in select stores and/or big cities...

We never had the old school A&F

You missed out they were great. I had some old A&F stuff back in the days when it was stuffy. I like Brooks Brothers today, but I don't have the kind of job where I could wear it. Probably Brooks Brothers will be all wimpy one day and A&F will go back to being a stuffy mens store.

I don't get the trend at all. I see "thugs" and "gangstas" (the real deal not the fake ones) wearing Dickies all the time. Dickies are work clothes made for work. I am wearing them right now and I am at work! Most thugs and gangstas don't have jobs.

Funny how after high school all that stuff doesn't matter anymore. I would never be friends with nerds in high school, but now I have a lot of friends who were nerds in high school. Nerds usually have good jobs, while a lot of the cool kids turn out to be bums. I see it all the time even today.

Quoting Airtrainer (Reply 17):

I kind of remember that brand. By the late 1990s I was out of style and became a jeans and flannel shirt guy in the winter and shorts and t-shirt guy in the summer. All of my t-shirts had/have beers (mostly cheap), airplanes, cars, tractors, or bars on them. Today I could care less about any kind of style as long as I look somewhat nice. The only fashion I really like is business wear and that stuff doesn't change all that much.

Interesting, more than a few of the girls I knew wore Stussy. But I don't remember girls wearing the other skate brands like Vision or Mossimo. The girls would wear girl versions of surf brands like Rip Curl, Quicksilver & Billabong, Country Road was popular with both sexes here as well, it was seen as 'upscale', usually worn by the rich kids, an aussie version of 'preppy' ($100+ for a glorified sweat top and this was in early 90's dollars.....) I forgot Mambo as well, had a few of their tshirts, works of art, if only I'd kept them.....

Vision

Vison Streetwear was cool. I always wearing Vison shoes while riding my Vison Physcostick skateboard when I was 13. Vans shoes were also cool with the skate crowd.

Quoting Melpax (Reply 19):
Mossimo

I was out of the skater thing by the time that was cool. I don't remember skaters wearing that, it was more preppy at my school.

If you want to see what cool skateboarders wore in the late 80s check out the film "Gleaming the Cube" (1989).

When I was a freshman in high school I moved from Denver to St. Louis and the style of clothes kids wore was different. I had a bunch of Vision, T&C, Gotcha, and Quick Silver and quickly found out that nobody in my neighborhood wore that kind of stuff. What was cool in St. Louis was IOU and those stupid Skidz pants (I had both).

Quoting Melpax (Reply 19):
Rip Curl, Quicksilver & Billabong

Those were the cool surfer brands I remember when I lived in Colorado in the 80s. Also we had T&C, Jimmy Z, Gotcha, Body Glove, and Rusty. All those brands came with stickers on the tags and all the cool kids had them stuck on the walls of their rooms.

For anyone who wants to see the cool surfer fashions of the late 80s check out the film "Back to the Beach" (1987).

I finally had to open the thread to figure out what it was. I guess the Stussy "craze" never reached our quaint little eastern Oregon village. A few people wore shirts or hats, but nothing major. I never would have thought about it if you hadn't brought it up.

Another "remember that" question: How wide spread was Squire Shop? I remember them when I was in late grade school and early Junior High. Our nearest mall was about 60 miles away, so we didn't go very often, but I remember I liked the clothes there. There was a Squire Shop in Kennewick, Portland and Bellevue.
