We love the emergence of brands from different places and seeing the progression with their direction and one name, in particular, we do take notice of is Guilty Clothing.

The cultural shift from the golden years of streetwear with the likes of The Hundreds, Diamond Supply, HUF, and Stussy were the vanguards of the scene to seeing high fashion menswear take over the fashion demographic goes to show how it defined our style palette today. The unique aspect of streetwear is the fact you can construct, build, and orchestrate an outfit with cheaper materials and become more versatile in the way you dress for a greater value as far as price goes. A group of individuals named Dex, Elias, Shaw, and Danny from the UK have gone beyond the boundaries to prove why streetwear is still so much of a vital aspect of how men dress in today’s time.
When looking into what streetwear has to offer in fashion, it’s not necessarily a lot in the terms of it being a trend but the longevity in the matter of evolving fashion, streetwear is here to stay. It’s the medium of having gear to wear on the day to day grind while also opposing the initial message of wearing what’s presented in the mall. You see this in the progression of different brands creating more and more material that fans + supporters can identify in person or online. One budding brand who’s defining themselves by breaking the medium and actually getting to their consumer is Cymple.
