The Fashion Game

Sportswear and designer labels are commonly used by gang members as "signature" clothing.  In some cases, fashion has caused an individual to be misidentified as a rival.  Below are a few examples of how gangs associate themselves with sportswear and designer wear.  Again, remember that a person wearing a piece of this clothing does not mean that he or she is a gang member.  Always look for further identifiers or "clues".
