Dress Code: No Mas x 1986 Mets

-Today's Mets loss marked their final game at Queens, NY's historic Shea Stadium. While I briefly mentioned Dwight Gooden a while back, I thought it necessary to further explore the legacy of the 1986 Mets, which included Gooden, Darryl Strawberry, and Seinfeld pretty boy Keith Hernandez. The team's various legal troubles made them the most infamous crew in Queens (aside from a rapper or two), and neither Gooden nor Strawberry ever reached their full potential.

-We have always been fans of UNDRCRWN's animated idolization of sports figures. However, New York's No Mas has taken a different approach to sports-influenced streetwear, with modified vintage sportswear and messages as cynical as they are celebratory. Above, Strawberry's legacy lives on. Below, some No Mas tributes to Wilt the Stilt and Pablo "Vinny Chase" Escobar.
