Indian street culture has gained momentum since last 3 or 4 years. Street style , hype products were overlooked and went unnoticed around 5-6 years ago. Our generation has witnessed the growth of the Supreme , Jordans , yeezys Off White and other brands. Getting to know about reselling , homegrown street brands seems easy because of constant hype building around that we see on social media. Numerous street enthusiasts in India are doing their part to express their ideas in the world of the fashion , street and art.
Usually we see celebrities , teens , even children rocking Jordans , LVs , Supreme and what not. But uncles and old people flaunting their grails and outfits are a rare sight. Many people may have come across highsnobiety and streetwear pages posting about an old guy rocking crazy Supreme Bogos , dunks and LV collections. It’s 71 year old Alojz Abram who became famous for his crazy outfits and streetwear style.
Truly speaking , its a great feeling to come across such posts and getting to know about their way of expression.
In India too we’ve got a “Hype Uncle”. These two words dont seem to play around that often!! Well , shattering the orthodox thoughts of the society and paving his own ideas and thoughts Mr. RK Aneja is giving major outfit goals to young guys out there. Mr. Aneja aka Hype Uncle can be seen rocking Nike X Off white AJ1s , yeezy’s on his insta handle. His outfit game is unparalleled with most of the hypebeats. Indian streetwear clothing are definitely his thing. Clothing from NoughtOne , Six5sixstreet , Jaywalking are part of his closet and fashion game. His unique and quick-witted insta captions make us admire him even more. Coz Copying captions from google is quite old-fashioned right?
Mr. RK Aneja is father of Ambar and Avni Aneja , the brains behind six5sixstreet.
Recently the Aneja family did a #shootfromhome series with HGStreet portraying the six5sixstreet clothing collection. Who needs model for showcasing your outfits when you’ve got a cool dad? Six5sixstreet has some crazy collections and now are dominating the Indian as well as global space.

A big learning from this is if you are passionate about something then you should strive towards it. Hype uncle is an inspiration for everyone out there who are a bit hesitant to follow the unconventional path. He has portrayed that age is just a number and should not be considered a hurdle in your path.
The day is not far when Hype Uncle will be featured on International pages for his on-point fashion game and not to forget his caption game too.
