The early 90′s was a fun time for fashion. Those that lived through it remember one piece of clothing in particular; Overalls. Around 1990-very early 92 it seemed everyone was wearing them. There were also Overall shorts for men that were passable pretty much only for the summer of 91. People began to gravitate towards the darker denim overall’s towards 92 and 1993 which seems to be the last year they were considered a mainstream wardrobe piece. Fast forward to 2010 and you rarely if ever see a person on the street (especially a guy) wearing overall’s. Early to mid 90′s fashion is definitely hot right now with the later part of the 90′s not far behind. Will overall’s become a part of everyone’s wardrobe again? Its possible. Levi’s produces a limited number of early 1900′s issue Overall’s every now and then (usually for the international market) and Carhartt always comes with the quality. Only time will tell for now, check out some throwback pictures below and feel free to vote whether or not YOU think Overall’s will make a comeback.
A tough sig shoe for a tough ball player. The X-Pro capitalized on the “X” trend that followed the classic “X” movie about Malcolm X’s life. The shoe was a high top that looked like a trimmed down sleeker looking AF1 with an “x”. At the time, Fila’s FX high, the Air Force 1, Ewings, and of course the X-Pro were all noteable shoes. Fit wise these sneakers are very very comfortable (much more comfortable than the comparable air force 1, Fila fx high, and Ewing’s). They came in a bunch of colorway’s and featured the “Impact Rebound System” which had a spring in the heal of the shoe. The one problem was that Xanthus didn’t have any successful sneakers to follow up with and that is why today, it would be pretty hard to bring these bad boys back (manufacturing costs would most likely outweigh the any potential profit). For now, these shoes remain a part of the past. Below are pictures from the DeFY. New York Vault enjoy as well as the x man himself doing what he did best, get confrontational.
