The "Alternative" Issue
Today, it's easy to lament how back-in-the-day niche things have become mainstream, or how "our" once-underground culture has gone global. Long-time collectors say sneaker culture is dead, lost to resellers, bots, and backdoor deals. Old heads agonize over how once-mighty hip-hop has devolved into "mumble" rap, devoid of the bars and lyrical play that once defined the genre. OGs of the clothing trade say "streetwear" has lost its edge, with many designers now rejecting the term full-stop, calling it out as meaningless. Obsolete.
