Its no secret that the A$AP Mob is one of the most stylish crews in hip-hop right now. The Mob isn't afraid to take chances and, as a result, have been celebrated for their clothing choices, and even credited for introducting hip-hop to a few designers.
XXL recently caught up with A$AP Twelvy to talk about the inspiration behind his style, his favorite brands back in the day, and whether or not he has plans to start a clothing line. Check out a few of his answers below.
On the inspiration behind his style:
"My brothers is wild fly, so I get inspiration from them. It’s not really on some brand shit for me, it’s more on the color scheme. I like black, so I’ll just keep it all black. It doesn’t matter if it’s some black Nike sweats or some black double RRL’s, I keep it real basic, but I do love wearing sweatsuits."
On style in Harlem:
"The style in Harlem stands out over everything and anything. You just know we some fly niggas. You never know what to expect from Harlem. We are always going to be on some different shit."
On clothing brands he wore during his earlier days:
"I used to wear a lot of Nautica. Gap was also popping, so you cannot tell me that Gap was not popping back in the days. A lot of Polo of course, and we used to wear a lot of AND1 shorts and shirts—”We were Born Ready” [Laughs]. I really didn’t have their sneakers, but I was definitely wearing a lot of their gear with the slogan. Y’all know about that. And Rocawear, I used to rock their jean suits, jean jackets and all that with the Nike Air Forces."
On releasing his own clothing line in the future:
"Nah, no plans of releasing a line as of yet. I’m focused on the music, but I do have some YNRE shirts out right now that you can buy at the A$AP Mob shop online. Besides, I only wear my shit, and of course V.Lone—shout out to them!"
