Street Jack January 2001!
Coming back to you guys with a new set of scans, I apologize for the lack of content recently, been waiting on a ton of new content to come in the mail and been using the time to organize what I already have, but I’m back! This set of releases came from one of my first hauls of magazines from Japan that I’ve just now had time to go through. I’ve posted a few teasers to the on my Instagram before but this will be the first time you can view them in entirety. Street Jack focuses on streetwear and sneakers as a whole and features a bunch of your favorite brands from the early 2000’s including Stüssy, Supreme, A Bathing Ape, X-Large, Goodenough, and many more, lets get into it!
Up first we have an in depth street style breakdown that almost all issues of Street Jack have. The images highlight the similarities and differences between the styles in cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Nagoya, and more. Each outfit is broken down in terms of who is wearing what which is incredibly valuable and the looks themselves are comparable to looks you would have seen on the streets of New York at this time too further proving the Japan was with or even ahead of the curve when it comes to fashion.
This is another section of the magazine which I really like as it is dedicated to displaying fleeces of all different colors and brands. While it’s summer for us now, January 2001 would be the perfect time for a cozy fleece in Japan. They display a wide variety of brands, some of which I’ve never heard of, including Patagonia, Arcteryx, and even Honda with a wide range of all the colors under the sun. Also highlighted in this section is a variety of of sports stadium jackets which would also be cozy for winter as well.
Up next we have a large selection of early 2000’s Nike footwear gems. Nike Shox sneakers were super popular and released in a bunch of different colorways, the HTM collaboration between Nike and Hiroshi Fujiwara was coming into fruition with the Woven, and the first release of the Prestos. This was such a great time for Nike sneakers in my opinion, tons of different unique options and crazy colorways like the lightning Prestos, gold AM97, and spiral Air Max TN. Oh how fun it would have been to go into a mall and see all of these displayed.
Stüssy was coming out with some of their best stuff during the early 2000’s. Tribal pattern cargo pants, high end watches, and re-imagined wallabes were some of the more subtle pieces from this season while they also released a number of cool graphic tees like their “headphones” graphic character. 2001 was a iconic year for both Stüssy and Supreme as they released infamous logo flip monogram pieces which ultimately led to a ton of controversy. Supreme ended up receiving a cease and desist from Louis Vuitton but in my opinion I think the Stüssy monogram is much better executed. Alongside the monogram pieces Stüssy also released the “Stüssy No.4“ graphic being a logo flip of Chanel’s No.5.
Stüssy and Supreme don’t get all the shine though, can’t forget about their Japanese counterparts like (W)Taps, Goodenough, A Bathing Ape, and Neighborhood. Some super cool pieces being released, (W)Taps tapping into their camo and military inspired roots, Bape coming through with some white camo, and Goodenough doing their amazing ventilation hoodie in collaboration with Recon. Those ventilation hoodies are my favorites and are still incredibly slept on along with a lot of Goodenough stuff. I could literally go on and on with Street Jack as there is usually around 250 pages in each issue but I’m gonna end it off with this fun little feature on PEZ dispensers. If your interested in browsing the full 250 page issue and all my other uploads in full, consider becoming a paid subscriber as it really helps me get new content to share with you guys!
