Cash Only Drop 6: Collection Overview
Inspired by ‘90s nostalgia, hip-hop and the golden era of skate, Cash Only’s latest collection remains loyal to the brand’s love for old school street styling and underground subculture. New season Cash Only clothing includes apparel detailed with graffiti style prints, hip-hop references and branding inspired by ‘90s fashion powerhouses, whilst colour block colourways and collegiate undertones pay homage to vintage varsity traditions.
Named after a time when stores only accepted cash payments, founded by the same guys behind Butter Goods and Lo-Fi, Cash Only is also led and inspired by the creative genius of Humidity Skate Shop owner and skater Philly Santosuosso. Proud to be navigating a lane of their own when it comes to their unrivalled aesthetic, Santosuossos' ties to Dirty Ghetto Kids, his love for the ‘80s rap and hip-hop movement and his New Orleans roots are undoubtedly captured by Cash Only’s nostalgic aesthetic. Following on from previous odes to the likes of Tupac Shakur, the Cash Only Records T-Shirt arrives as a new tee inspired by ‘90s hip-hop memorabilia and by iconic record label logos such as those belonging to Strong City and Ice Cube’s Lench Mob Records. Additional new season Cash Only t-shirts also include the Toon T-Shirt, the classic Cash Only Logo T-Shirt and the heavyweight Only Star tee.
Subtle references to a certain fashionwear icons are detailed across the Cash Only Jeans Crewneck Sweatshirt, a creative nod towards the brand’s anti-corporate narrative, whilst the World Series Varsity Jacket features in the brand’s ‘Ball Game’ release video and is inspired by classic baseball jerseys. Detailed with faux leather arm panels, multi-logo chenille patches and tailored to a relaxed fitting with a satin lining. The Cash Only Logo Hoodie arrives in a block tone shade of black, with high density ‘Cash Only’ branding arched across the chest. Styled with similar reference to the Cash Only Jeans Sweater, the Cash Only Cashvisu Baggy Jeans also cite ‘90s fashion with their embroidered pockets and their loose cut, whilst the Enemy Baggy Jeans pay subtle homage to hip-hop group Public Enemy and to Santosuosso’s signature Butter Goods pants. Inspired by outdoor hiking styles, the Breaker Cargo Pants feature drawstring and toggle adjustable cuffs, an integrated webbing belt and 3D utility pockets, whilst the All Terrain Cargo Shorts are similarly styled with a mesh lining, a webbing belt and mirrored cargo pockets.
Cash Only caps and beanies remain a staple of their latest drop, with six panel caps such as the Cash Only Jeans Cap and Toon Cap crafted from cotton and detailed with direct embroidery, flat brims and woven ventilation eyelets across the scalp. The short fit Stripe Skull Beanie is made from 100% acrylic and styled with a stretchable fabric face, embroidered branding and with an uncuffed finish.
Playfully self-described as a ‘multi-faceted urban conglomerate’, Australia’s Cash Only are known for their ‘90s era streetwear aesthetic and their bit-graphic supporting edits. Backed by skate videos such as ‘Sponsor Tape’ and ‘Phone Booth’, as well as by skaters such as Aleka Lang, Adilson Pedro and design lead Philly Santosuosso.
