Skateboard Clothes or Urban Wear?

Perhaps only the most long-time skateboarder can remember whether skateboarding has influenced fashion or if fashion has influenced skateboarding. Skateboarding clothes and fashion have meshed into what can be called ‘urban wear'.

But the general outfit includes baggy pants with exposed underwear, long t-shirts, and a beanie. The baggy pants do provide freedom of movement, and the beanies keep skateboarders' heads warm, so there is an element of practicality here.

This is a stereotype. I do remember it was about 7-9 years ago when skateboarders wore baggy pants though. I see alot of kids wearing tight jeans actually. The baggy pants thing is more of a hip hop kid thing
