Welcome to the worlds greatest guide to Men's Urban Fashion.  Are you actually looking for urban fashion for men?  Well, we hope you are because the reality is that you have found our young men's urban fashion page.

Urban fashion occasionally goes by different names.  Just like the fast moving style, the name of this category of clothing changes from time to time as well.  Young men's, urban, street, hip hop, etc.  Hip hop fashion, also referenced as big fashion from time to time, is a distinctive style of dress originating from inner city youth.  Not sure exactly when the term hip-hop fashion began but it possible started in New York City.   Followed by Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, the San Francisco Bay Area, Detroit, Memphis, Virginia, Atlanta, St. Louis and others. Each city contributed various elements to its overall style seen worldwide today.

Street fashion is fashion that is considered to have emerged not from studios, but from the grassroots streetwear. Street fashion is generally associated with youth culture, and is most often seen in major urban centers.

Urban fashion is influenced by creative youth as well as celebrities.  Rapper LL Cool J wore a Kangol hat back in the 1980s, when few Americans knew anything about the European hat maker.  His association with hip-hop would invigorate the brand.  The Nike capture of soon-to-be superstar basketball protege Michael Jordan from rivals Adidas in 1984 proved to be a huge turning point, as Nike dominated the urban streetwear sneaker market in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In the late 1970s, established sportswear and fashion brands, such as Le Coq Sportif, Kangol, Adidas and Pro-Keds attached themselves to the emerging hip hop scene.  Hip hop fashion complements the expressions and attitudes of hip hop culture in general. Hip hop fashion has changed significantly during its history, and today, it is a prominent part of popular fashion as a whole across the world.

In the 1990s and beyond, many hip hop artists and executives started their own fashion labels and clothing lines.  Notable examples include Wu-Tang Clan (Wu-Wear), Nelly (Vokal and Apple Bottom Jeans), Russell Simmons (Phat Farm), Kimora Lee Simmons (Baby Phat), Diddy (Sean John and Enyce), T.I. (AKOO), Damon Dash and Jay-Z (Rocawear), 50 Cent (G-Unit Clothing), Eminem (Shady Limited), 2Pac (Makaveli Branded), OutKast (OutKast Clothing), Lil Wayne (Trukfit), and Kanye West (Yeezy).

It is always a fabulous day to learn more about men's fashion.
