90s-era BMX shirts at Urban Outfitters

14 01 2019

Have 90s-era BMX t-shirts finally crossed the rubicon into hipster fashion?

Signs are pointing to yes.

Reports are coming out saying that Urban Outfitters stores are now stocking shirts from GT, Dyno, Mongoose and Schwinn.

I first spotted them on Brian Tunney’s Instagram:

Apparently they are put out by a company called ourlegendsauthentic.

Will they be hit with hipster millennials who were kids when these brands/logos were big?

Tough to say.

For myself, I used to sweat some of the earlier Dyno designs…the fish shoes, tragically hip shirt, etc.

 


If those designs start showing up…well, this aging Gen-Xer might be elbowing those hipsterĀ millennials out of the way for some new shirts.

Schwinn sizing up the retro scene

6 10 2018

We have commented on the retro trend a number of times over the past few years…and this trend isĀ  showing no signs of abating.

Legacy BMX brands, one after the other, are seeing what a cash cow that retro bikes can be.

As one industry insider put it to me a while back, “we’re pulling at the heartstrings to open the purse strings”.

Schwinn is latest brand to get on this bandwagon.

For more on this, check out the pictures of the 24″ Schwinn SX-1000 that started floating around the interwebs this past week. They’ve garnered a lot of attention.

Word on the street is that model isn’t available in North America at the moment but it’s a current option in one of the other countries Schwinn serves.

It certainly hits all the right notes for a retro cruiser: frame gusset, laidback seatpost, caliper brakes and tanwall tires.

Fingers crossed, we’ll see this bike make it’s way to our shores some time soon.
