Streetwear’s Never Ending Story

Chances are if you fancy yourself up to date in #menswear then you've noticed yourself slowly drifting further and further into some very streetwear-laden waters recently. Maybe you're replacing your double monks with sneakers, your artisanal T-shirts with graphics, your vintage condoms for Keith Haring Tengas. But your fascination with streetwear, passionate as it may or may not be, should still be grounded in facts and some solid core knowledge of its history. Thanks to our friends at Complex Style (I'm literally looking at these motherfuckers while writing this), you can now have a well-structured narrative of the industry's greatest turning points, from the opening of Supreme in 1994 to the advent of eBay's secondary market and its oft-derided "re-seller" culture. Peep the entire list of historical streetwear moments here.
