1998 Best Clothing, Streetwear

Blades Board & Skate

This is legit streetwear— not designer clothing posing as the original. Surfwear labels like Billabong, QuickSilver, Vans, and DC are the labels of choice. Accessories include skateboards, or, depending on the season, snowboards and Timbuktu bike messenger bags. For parents clueless about what their kids really wear, the multi-pierced sales help are hip to what your kids want.
