Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you , I’m back with another one. Welcome to the third installment of this series , but today I’m not just speaking on one legendary streetwear brand but two. PNB NATION and SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS , both of these brands gained major notoriety in the early 90’s and are both in my fashionable opinion the true essence of what a streetwear brand would look like. I personally feel like I saw both of these brands take off thanks to the fact that I was at the MAGIC FASHION CONVENTIONS in Vegas where they would show off their wears to various buyers. both brands were a major inspiration and influence to me because each time I saw them it just caused me to aspire to make my personal streetwear brand at the time better and better to feel like I could some day one day compete with them in the same venue. Both of these brands seemed to progress at a rapid pace each year when they were showing at the fashion convention and I was there to see it happen. As I was saying in the previous installments of this series not only has Hip-Hop reached a major milestone of a 50th anniversary , but all the style and fashion that came along with it. As I was saying before the late 80’s into the 90’s saw an explosion of brands and designers that would make clothing and fashion that seemed like something that was relatable and obtainable. Each time you saw one of these brands explode on the scene it literally made you feel like , it was possible for you to create a brand also and many did just that , not all were successful but those that were left a true impression on the industry and would be remembered for many years to come. Even if they didn’t all survive but at least had a really good successful run. Which is what both PNB NATION & SOHK were both able to accomplish in a sea of streetwear brands on the come up.

For the most part both of these brands can now be shopped on sites that specialize in vintage streetwear , because even though both of these brands seem to be no longer being distributed to the masses , there is an old and a new audience that are still in search of owning a piece of these now rarely seen brands. to shop these brands log onto http://www.shoplhp.com , http://www.etsy.com , and http://www.grailed.com .
