Former Love Island Contestant Rykard Jenkins caught up in political controversy over Foxberry Boys Red FXB Cap

Thanks to Leigh McManus, MailOnline Reporter for the shoutout. McManus writes an article on the MailOnline how @realdonaldtrump planned to capitalise on former Love Island contestant Rykard Jenkins 360k followers to promote his campaign for re-election in 2020.

We don’t follow politics much, but we know enough that Donald Trump presidential campaign caps for 2020 cannot compare to our classic snapbacks.

Hip Hop’s Influence on Luxury Fashion Brands

Run DMC Cold Chillin in 1985

Run DMC Cold Chillin in 1985

The 1980s and early 90s was an era of fashion statements, freedom of speech, flossing and experimenting. So let’s take some time to appreciate our roots of hip hop fashion because let’s face it, if it wasn’t for Hip Hop icons such as Run DMC, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Notorious BIG, WU Tang Clan and Jay Z we would not have luxury streetwear and hip hop fashion. Hip Hop was a small flame, but without it becoming what it was in the early 1980s infiltrating main stream pop culture it would not have spread like wild fire today.

With many rappers talking about expensive designer clothes in their songs Notorious BIG - “I'm clocking ya, Versace shades watching ya” and wearing them in their rap videos. It didn’t take long for the Hip Hop artists to realise these fashion companies were happy for them to promote their brands whilst keeping them at arms length and reaping all the financial benefits from their status and listeners. It was thought that urban communities would cheapen luxury brand names. The Hip Hop industry quickly began to tire from the luxury brand knock backs and decided to turn rejection into a statement of intent, creating clothes for fans who, like them, were at best only ever endured by the establishment. Like their music, their clothes reflected reality of what was happening within their community. The first to launch their own brand was Wu Tang Clan, with Wu Wear, then followed artists such as Diddy who launched Sean John, and Jay Z launched Rocawear. These artists realised their was a gap in market and they could control what they promoted and how they were rewarded. This was the rise of so-called urban fashion.

It was no coincidence that this b-boy culture instigated a popularity in sportswear brands such as Adidas, PUMA, FILA and Reebok who started forming relationships with rappers, as their branding technique and selling point, to exploit both the fashion and music industry’s commercial potential.

Alexander Wang, a big fan of hiphop music himself, also created a streetwear collection, “Do Something” claiming that hip-hop music “is the most relevant genre of music that speaks to me and our generation”. Recently, street style has also been hybridizing with more high fashion tastes. Louis Vuitton, for instance, collaborated with Kanye West for an exclusive shoe model.

Kanye West has spent most of his career complaining that he’s not taken seriously as a designer, and while his first attempts at high fashion bombed, with Yeezy he’s become a model for the kind of power and influence rappers can have over fashion and, more importantly, business. Before Kanye, rappers were lucky to be paid to wear a brand’s clothes. Now, they’re at the controls.

Nowadays, the number of expensive street-style brands have been increasing; leveraging the value of casual, swagger high fashion. Partly due to the mainstream acceptance of rappers and DJs as icons in the past few decades. The recent flux of pricier, casual streetwear brands defies the concept of “high fashion” prior to this multifaceted phenomenon, that was once ruled exclusively by the fashion elite and viewed to be untouchable.

Looking for the best festival outfit | What to wear to a summer festival 2019

#FXBFans @iamscotty left and @lonyoengele right

#FXBFans @iamscotty left and @lonyoengele right

The music festival season is upon us and here at Foxberry Boys HQ we couldn't be more excited about it because music is art and so is fashion, right!

We are looking forward to Coachella, Glastonbury, Wireless, V Festival and Lovebox…

If you’re heading to a festival this summer, fashion is a great opportunity to be playful and try something new, because anything goes.

So let’s do a quick wardrobe check. Here is a fashion guide on the must haves and accessories.

Bum Bag

Fellas a bum bag accessory is not just for the ladies. We all need to make sure at the end of the night, we still have our wallet, keys and most importantly our mobile phones. So up your style game because a bum bag is good investment and we have highlighted some of our favourites below.

Footwear

If the festival is lit, you will be on your feet all day.  A cool comfortable trainer is a must. However, if you are a proud trainer collector, we would suggest you leave your best at home and opt for a classic pair of Nike, Adidas, Vans or Converse that can easily be replaced because festivals can get quite messy.

Tops

As they say ‘Suns out, Guns out’. If your confident you can wear an on trend pattern print Cuban/Hawaiian short sleeve shirt or tie dye t shirt is definitely the look for you.

Although, if you have spent a lot of time in the gym during autumn/winter and you are feeling yourself, then it is all about the sleeveless statement t shirt or better still a vest. 

Eyewear

Bring a bit of Miami to your festival outfit through eyewear. Why not try a tinted round or hexagon sunglasses to upgrade your look. With so many choices, we managed to narrow it down to a few favorites.

Shorts or Jeans

Long story short - If it is hot then bring out your shorts. Knee-length denim options are a good way to go.

Still, keep in mind that festivals are a great opportunity to be a bit more playful with your fashion choices. So search for different colors or shorts with prints.

Headwear

If you haven’t already, get yourself a Foxberry Boys Snapback and make a real statement. With so many to choose from, why not get your hands on our new florescent classic Signature snapback that can be found on our website.

Speaking to the Cray Valley PM players ahead of the biggest game in the clubs history. We asked how they manage to contain their excitement at reaching the FA Vase Final. Francis Babalola said “Players prepare in different ways, I like wearing our club tracksuit it makes me feel comfortable and I usually compliment it with fresh trainers and a cool baseball cap. I also like to zone out by listening to music on my apple air pods”.

A Guide on How to Wear Your Snapback

What is a snapback?

Rapper, Tyga

Rapper, Tyga

The history of the snapback was given rise from the american sport baseball, but don’t get it twisted this is not baseball cap. Although the two are similar in nature, they do have differences. The snapback gets its name from an adjustable strap or as we like to call it “snap” at its back, which makes it a one-size-fits-all style. Baseball caps, on the other hand, are fitted and cannot be adjusted. Snapbacks also have a flat peak and six panels that make up the cap and result in a high dome toward the front. This shape provides the snapback with its unique appearance and a larger space around the cap to allow for premium customisation with print, embroidery and badges. 

How to Choose a Snapback

Selecting a snapback is definitely down to personal preference. Our Foxberry Boys snapback collection comes in a variety of designs and colourways, you can always find the right one for you by picking one that suits your personality and style. If you find you are struggling to choose, think about your desired look you are going for and go from there. If you’re interested in sports, you can choose our Trademark Fox Logo snap or if you prefer a minimal aesthetic, try a more simplistic design. However if you are still struggling to find your style or new to the cap game, why not stick to a simple and classic design like our Foxberry Boys Signature design in black. This way we guarantee your cap will compliment whatever outfit you pair it with.

The Snapback Hip-Hop Look

The history of Hip-Hop music gave rise to the snapback style. The rappers cool attitude and outfits go well together with a edgy snapback making them a popular must have accessory. Choose a snapback that makes a sleek and bold statement, such as our FXB design with white embroidery. Make sure you wear it with the brim facing forward and complete your outfit with an oversized, graphic tee, ripped black jeans or shorts, and sneakers.

How to wear a snapback

Wearing your snapback forward is the most common and classic position. Its safe to say wearing your snapback forward presents a clean appearance and stylish fashion statement especially with streetwear outfits creating that urban style. However a more confident man can also wear one backwards. Be careful though because if your outfit is not on point your look can appear to be outdate if your snap is worn in the wrong way or with the wrong outfit. To pull off wearing a snapback backwards, pair it with modern and contemporary styles and designs. Also, remember to keep your outfit casual as the look projects a relaxed and carefree attitude. Aim for an urban style with streetwear and be sure to wear the cap high on your head on a downwards slant backwards.

Finally, remember there are a few rules to wearing snapbacks.

  • Never wear a snapback with formal clothing.

  • Do not bend the peak, they wear made like this for a reason. If you would like a curved peak cap we suggest you go for our very popular Sports Luxe Baseball cap.

  • Do not twist your snapback sideways, straight forward front or to the back are the only ways.

  • Remember your age, if your wearing a snapback at an older age, you may appear to be hanging on to your youth. But who are we to stop

Deciding what to wear to a basketball game doesn't have to be complicated. Over and over again, celebrities have proven how stylish something as simple as a t-shirt or hoodie and jeans can be when paired with a cool accessory can give your outfit that edgy look.

Other than the exciting match, Foxberry Boys rubbed shoulders with celebrities and Premier League stars court side who put aside their rivalries at court side to enjoy a great NBA exhibition.

In terms of the game, well we thought the Knicks were going to run away with it as the gained a healthy lead which they held onto for the majority of the game with Emmanuel Mudiay and Luke Kornet leading the way for their side in terms of points.

However Wizards star 25 year old star Bradley Beal was the most-exciting player on the night and on fire as he managed 26 points to inspire the win for the Wizards in the final quarter by a point.

'Love Islanders' Kem and Amber beat our favourites fourth evicted Marcel and Gabby to be crowned 2017 winners

Kem Centinay and Amber Davies beat Camilla Thurlow and James Hewitt to win Love Island 2017.

Marcel Somerville and Gabby Allen were the first couple to be evicted from Love Island's live final on Monday night followed shortly by Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood in third place.

Since Marcel Sommerville aka 'Platinum' from the 'Blazin Squad' joined the ITV programme Love Island. The band has seen online streams soar to 2500%

During episode one of Love Island, Marcel opened up about his boyband past with his fellow contestants. - “No obviously I used to be in the Blazin' Squad when I was a kid”, he said. “Dom, how could you not know Bruv?” and Camilla even managed to get Marcel to say the word 'Blazin' Squad' 5 times during a conversation based on completing a task set by Love Island producers.

Well don't worry Marcel, Foxberry Boys knows exactly who you are!  Due to our boyband affiliation #wearefoxberryboys

Blazin’ Squad debuted way back in 2001 and released three full length albums between then and 2006. The band made a short return in 2009 to release their ‘Greatest Hits’ album.

Their biggest hit and most streamed song in the group’s back catalogue, ‘Crossroads’, spent a week at Number One back in 2002.

Marcel told the show “Right now I don’t think it’s the right time for the squad to reunite. Obviously I’ll come out of there and we’ll probably do some gigs but I don’t know whether or not it’ll be the full 10, but you never know. You might get lucky and we might do a one-off but I’m throwing it out there. It’s not a definite but there’s possibilities in the near future that might happen.”

“But there’s also possibilities that in the near future we could all get back together and do a couple of songs – maybe do an album. You got to give us time mate. Everyone’s doing their own little things. It’s a patience game, man. Getting 10 people together is really hard these days.”

Two days before the final showdown the couples met each others parents to solidify their approval of the relationship in the Love Island show and we were almost certain Marcel and Gabby would be crowned winners, but we guess it was not meant to be.

All Eyez On Me Tupac Biopic Movie Shows the Resurrection of Early 90s Streetwear Fashion

upload.jpg

First of all we just want to say straight off the back Foxberry Boys thoroughly enjoyed watching the 'All Eyez On Me' biopic movie of Tupac Shakur. And cast members Demetrius Shipp Jr (Tupac Shakir) and Kat Graham (Jada Pinkett) did a great job playing these roles. Foxberry Boys are a massive fan of the late Tupac Shakur and watching the resurrection of US streetwear fashion such as Karl Kani and Walker Wear clothing brought back fond memories. We remember learning about Tupac in the early 90s watching him feature in a track by Digital Underground called 'I Get Around' on MTV cable box set channel programme called 'Yo! MTV Raps' . Tupac eventually branched off to be a solo artist, with most of Tupac themed songs revolving around hardship and social issues within the inner cities.

Digital Underground featuring Tupac - 'I Get Around'

Digital Underground featuring Tupac - 'I Get Around'

Tupac very much felt he was the voice of the people and what he stood for inspired the youths of today and most of his music is still relevant in today's society. in the early days we quickly noted Tupac's love for streetwear and his snapback he would wear backwards throughout most of his career which can be seen throughout his biopic movie.

The 90s saw the introduction of the 3 sided embroidery snapback merchandise during this decade because of the rise of HipHop and Rap music. This was heavily influenced by the artists who used to wear their snapback to the back.

Since then the snapback still remains an essential staple piece accessory within the modern day consumers wardrobe for everyday use.

Inspired by the early 90s HipHop music genre and streetwear fashion Foxberry Boys have designed a collection of quality 3 sided embroidery snapbacks of our own which can be purchased at £29.99 www.foxberryboys.co.uk giving our customers that stylish and edgy look with today's fashion contemporary trend.

Foxberry Boys definitely gives the 'All Eyez On Me' Tupac biopic 4 stars and the only reason why it wasn't a 5 star is because it was hard to squash his entire life into a 2 hour movie and most of all their will only ever be one legendary Tupac Shakur.
