Play Cloths Fall 2009 Collection

Well, for those of you that didn’t know, Clipse started their own streetwar label called Play Cloths. They have a new fall 2009 line-up that I think will solidify their place in the streetwear culture. WIth this season they added some new pieces and colorways say Christmas with a sofe grey undertone. They have everything in this fall line-up from v-necks, polos, button-ups, fitted cap and some nice graphic tees. So, look out for this to drop sometime by the end of August.

I say this because I understand the history of streetwear but also realize where the genre is going these days. For those that don’t know, it all began in the late 1970s and early 1980s with the introduction punk and hip-hop. Both of these musical styles embraced a do-it-yourself ethic brought about by the mainstreams refusal to except them and …

There’s a buzz in the streetwear scene and the buzz is community. Long gone is the one way marketing style, as streetwear creators are now reaching out to their audience through the internet… and their audience is reaching back.
