Though the 1990s produced its share of timeless hip-hop music, the same can’t be said for clothing and accessories. Sure, Ralph Lauren, Timberland and Air Jordans are exceptions, but many of the brands that were must-have in the ‘90s are now nostalgic references. Remember those ski goggles? Remember when LL Cool J rolled one of his pant legs up? As ugly as Coogi sweaters were, Biggie made them look fly. What about Cross Colours? As ‘90s Week continues, XXL looks back at some of the brands and accessories people couldn’t do without in the ‘90s. —XXL Staff
