Hip-Hop Clothing Outdoorsman Movement:
Timberland, NorthFace, Woolrich, Pendleton
Wool and Gore-tex are as disimilar as fabrics can be yet they both represent the ideal for the outdoorsmen. Hip-Hop was begun by urbanites who rarely had the resources to go mountain hiking or pursue outdoor recreational activities other than mostly avoiding unjustifiable frisks from policemen, but if someone from the Bronx ever got the chance to go to Everest they would undoubtedly wear Timberland boots and a NorthFace coat. Since that’s what they wear to climb the steps to the elevated train on Tremont Avenue.
