A Slubby Simulacrum 

Back in the golden era, AKA the early 90’s (here we go again) a lot of rappers wore long sleeve, knit shirts with contrasting woven collars. You might know them as Rugby shirts. Nautica, Tommy, Ralph—whatever your flavor, they all made them. The re-appropriated preppy staple was almost as ubiquitous as tall Timbs and fishing vests on the streets of 1992 Brooklyn. Now, sociologists say that trends reappear in 20-year cycles, which is why we’re now seeing a lot of 90’s trends back in rotation. It’s also great for me, because I lived through that era and now have a semi-encyclopedic knowledge of early 90’s hip-hop fashion trends that I am more than happy to keep referencing here. But, the thing with recycled trends is that when they come back they are always slightly altered, a mere simulacrum of the original. That’s why this rugby shirt is so perfect right now. Instead of the literal bright color-blocked or striped 90’s originals, you can wear this slubby, knit, monochromatic version as a subtle nod to the 90’s trend without feeling like you’re trying to relive those golden years.
