JKISSI’s Style Inspiration General Style  -  News 16 Comments

JKISSI : I feel like the site and the readers are like family so sometimes I will share some information or what I’m thinking at the moment. I just wanted to take some time out to share my style inspiration from before to now. Of course my style is constantly changing but not too drastic these days I feel like I’m almost in a comfortable place, but then again I make some changes. I remember the days I use to wear Columbia jackets with Vasques/Goretex boots with Parasuco jeans don’t laugh too much though.  I see it like an evolution , a style evolution in fact I feel sometimes you have to make some changes to your style, nothing drastic. Just because I no longer dress baggy doesn’t mean I’m unable to  appreciate someone pulling that look of fashion off great example of somehow who does it right is Henry aka Soundbomber off HB and Sufu forums. People around me or online have seen that my style has changed through out the years, in my opinion for the better as we get older I just like to simply clean up these days and bring out the sneakers on occasion. Like I said before I’m in a pretty comfortable place dressing the way I am now. I’m going to just show you guys some pictures of inspiration of my current style and previous, enjoy.

Oh man, the swag and style of Miles Davis. I just love this look right  here.

Addition thanks to Evan this picture is flawless.

    No Sam Cooke, Howlin Wolf? I had a similar transition over the past decade since I moved to New York. I guess I felt disconnected from the hip hop scene at the time. I always was interested in fashion but my interests shifted more to Saville Row and away from Marcy Ave. I’ve always been an old soul so I kind of take it in stride when people think that dressing a certain way is “white”. I know that the present hip hop style hasn’t always been the same, much less the “uniform” of black males.

    i feel you on this one. My style has changed sooooo much…it seems like some people are scared to switch it up now because the word “hypebeast” is being thrown around so much these days. A man should know whats apropriate thats the advice I would give to people and what I think about on a daily basis.

    What movie was that in the second and third pic? i was watching it the other day.

    Hey Ian, mannn I was close to dropping Sam Cooke in there and a host of more people , but I wanted to keep it short and sweet this time around. I feel like during the 30s – 80s african americans were dressing way more cleaner idk what happeend in the 90s lol . I went back looking at pictures from back then, style was definitely more compelling than now. I mean my style has changed far away from a cut out of hiphop , but hiphop is the culture its in me since I was a little kid. It’s already instilled in me. Some of the people I see in the “hood” are kind of taken back by the way I dress because I’m not looking similar to them. Some people say ignorant shit under their breath, but I could tell by the look on their face they dont know what to classify my look as. While other people appreciate especially the older dudes will say man.. i remember when we use to “blah blah blah” back in our day. Personally I just feel like back than the outfits had way more style to it and was sharp, i mean fashion changes and all. Your right about the “uniform” thing for black males though.

    hey Dayinthelyf I could also see what your saying man I think you get called a Hypebeast when you dont do research on the look and you jump right into it real fast, and you keep doing that in everything. Like your just doing it because someone else is , not because you personally like it. Thats contradactive to Hypebeast Forums where we despise people like that lol always found that funny. The 3rd and 4th pic is from the movie Cooley High man a good movie I recommend people to watch.

    btw – I like when people actually comment and respond with some real sense good convos start.

    I might join the Hypebeast foum sometime…yeah I see what you’re saying there. People my age (16) just hop on soooooo much when you’re one of the better dressed…I purposely go to school on a “tag” day w/o my best outfits because all of a sudden they become your best friend; those aren’t people i’d like to attract….and did I mention that i go to an all boys school??
