British photographer Gift Gwambe celebrates the illustrious heritage of brands like Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Carhartt WIP, Stone Island and Patagonia in an editorial featuring a ton of vintage garb. “X.L. Mens” sports a variety of boxy, throwback pieces styled together in a colorful, typically ’90s fashion, reminding us that while streetwear may be currently obsessed with all things minimal and monochrome, its roots are much bolder, brighter and brasher.
