“The street culture to London, grime’s the soundtrack to that,” once said seminal grime DJ Logan Sama. “It runs in parallel: the dress code, the music, they’re all reflection of that.” So, grime fashion is the look of the everyman on the street, but has to be kept fresh and clean. Though it’s about sometimes wearing trackies and trainers, your tracksuit better be crisp and your trainers (sneakers) better not be scuffed.’
