Like it or not, 90s men's streetwear is starting to have a bit of a comeback. In case you haven't noticed, some of the biggest current streetwear brands are Supreme (a skate-inspired brand), Palace (another skate-inspired brand), begging the question of if we are about to re-enter an era of grungy skate-style streetwear. However, what you may have also noticed is that the new-wave skate popular skate streetwear is also fairly expensive. Whether this style is about to make a big comeback or not, and whether you're even into current streetwear or not, everyone deserves some help on how to pull off these looks without spending all their hard earned beer money.
Firstly, there are a couple things that haven't changed much in 90s inspired streetwear since, well, the 90s. Most importantly, the musical influence. Band merch is making a big comeback, and puling indy-rock or punk-rock tees, sweaters, or caps into your look is probably the easiest and most effective move you could make. You can also still get away with lots of the same layering pieces as long as they don't look too refined. Read: classic red plaid under a vintage thrift store bomber jacket.
However, some things have changed since then. The pants are still cut fairly short to show off your long socks and Vans. However, now they're much more tapered, even to the extent of the elastic seam on jogger pants. Frosted tips aren't coming back anytime soon (cross your fingers), but long hair is still having a big moment, and if you've got your fair share of tattoos and punk-rock attitude like Josh here, you can probably get away with the dyed hair as well. Altogether, you've got a whole look for maybe $150 if you've done it right.
