The clothing often associated with the Hip Hop genre/scene would be more commonly referred to as 'Street wear'. This is generally expensive brands which owning an item of raises the the individual status above those around them and are often limited or even deadstock so are difficult for 'normal' people to get there hands on without spending a large amount of money. The brands commonly associated with these items of clothing would be A Bathing Ape, Supreme, Nike, The North Face etc. However brands which would have often been often associated with the upper class such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Raf Simons have recently begin to be more commonly worn on the street scene. The stereotypical image of a Hip Hop artist would often feature a large fur coat, jewellery and diamonds which often feature prominently within the hierarchy if the Hip Hop culture.
