Many jokes have been made at his expense, but there's no denying one thing: MC Hammer had style. In the early '90s, when the Oakland dancing machine controlled the pop charts, he brought flashy stage costumes back to hip-hop with his shoulder-padded suits, gold chains and, of course, those roomy trousers with the over-sized crotch that became known as "Hammer Pants."
Well, in honor of Hammer's return—his new reality show Hammertime debuts this weekend on A&E—we put together a guide to capturing the Funky Headhunter's classic style. Using all clothing you can buy online right now, we reconstructed and gave a modern twist to his most quintessential look—the yellow blazer and Hammer Pants outfit from the "U Can't Touch This" video.
