Layne Staley vs. A$AP Rocky
How Grunge Influenced Streetwear: As frontman of Alice in Chains, Layne Staley knew a thing or two about dressing like a rock star and owning a crowd. If A$AP Rocky is going to lead the A$AP Mob into the legendary territory that Alice in Chains covered, he's going to have to take some moves from other notable stylish rappers and rock stars. Two lessons he's already garnered from Staley is that shirtlessness and snapbacks are a potent combo.
What's Changed Since Grunge: Back in the early '90s, having a few tattoos meant you were a card-carrying badass. Obviously, a lot's changed since then—musicians are tatted from head to toe, pants sit lower, and the jewelry of choice is now gold, as is the champagne.
