    Dapper Dan is a godfather of fashion. People don’t know. He created the colorful logo printed outfits that Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, etc. later on copied. Even cheaper non-luxury brands copy this (Victoria’s Secret, Pretty Little Things, Gap, Nike, etc.) Dapper Dan paved the way for WuWear, Baby Phat, Supreme, Billionaire Boys Club, A Bathing Ape (Bape) Anti Social Social Club, etc. He created modern Streetwear, he created the Hypebeast culture. Ya don’t know.

    Why is so much culture in America being recycled from 30 years ago when this country was waaay better, that tells you alot..jut look at movies music art fashion and so on and so on, people are longing for a country with real culture again we need enough space from the soul sucking corporations and overzealous police for organic culture to blossom but nevermind that keep cannabalizing yourself USA.

    He is cool and all, But why dont Black people try and support Black businesses and Black clothing lines, instead we make all this other races billionaires. That i cant go with, thats why i dont wear any name brands. unless its For Us By Us. keep black money with Black people. That i respect.
