Frederick Chin
I drew this guy just because he’s rocking some serious 90s shit. 
a) That hair. Mad popular ‘do for Asians and non-Asians alike…
b) That grunge staple he’s wearing – a plaid flannel vest with a heather grey hood of sweatshirt material sewn onto it (complete with drawstrings).
Allow me to explain. It all started with alcoholic sportswear (™ the Judges family), those plaid shirt/jackets with a sewn-in liner, usually done up with snap buttons. In the ‘hood I believe they were called “Pendletons”. Dickies and other blue-collar brands made ‘em.
Needless to say, plaid was a grunge staple. Meanwhile, in California when I went to visit in grade 11 I bought this Quiksilver buffalo plaid shirt with a grey hood sewn onto it – the first of its kind I’d ever seen. I bring it home, and sure enough, about six months later that shit is ubiquitous: plaid shirts with hoods, plaid vests with hoods, you name it… 
The best part of this is, on the very same page as ol’ Freddy here in this particular yearbook is another dude rockin’ this same shit! Maybe not the exact same one (but possibly the exact same one)…
I gotta give it a retro-active name. The groodie (pronounced like “hoodie” ‘cept with a “Grr-” sound first)? Sounds like what the droogs call boobs in “A Clockwork Orange.”
The grundie? Sounds too much like drawers… Maybe the Seattle? Not descriptive, really, but evokes the era. Suggestions welcome…

V. White (1 of 3 wiggers in a row)
So in the same row of photos as our intrepid indexter-signalling Jaemie are three classic wiggers – and appropriately enough, the first dude up is V. White. I think he has the chinkiest eyes I’ve ever drawn in these joints – and squinting at the picture, I just gotta believe he’s high or something. Not judging, just observatin’…
Anyway, he’s got a classic early 90s wigger haircut, that faintly smug/vacant expression on his face – and he’s rocking overalls! Yes, it’s true – in the early 90s overalls were perfectly acceptable b-boy wear. Preferably Dickies or Carhartt, though there were plenty of lesser brands churning out these suckers (Ikeda, Buffalo, fug – remember Manager jeans!?!, etc.). One shoulder or two – it wuz all up to your personal preference. No, I didn’t have a pair – but I honestly did want ‘em. I remember Nas rockin’ a pair of Dickies overalls in a picture with Ghost, Rae and Mobb Deep during the “Eye for an Eye” session in that “photos of wuz happenin’ now” section of The Source backintheday and str8t feelin’ that Jealous One’s Envy.
A lot of my fashion envy wuz Source Magazine-generated then. I recall Sticky Fingaz rockin’ the OG 95 Air Max in one photo spread and immediately knowing I had to have a pair. Them shitz is hella played and stuff now – but they remain an impossibly dope design. Word to Sergio Lozano!
