Rapper Wiz Khalifa inspired Taylor Gang clothing. The lifestyle brand features the clothing styles worn by Khalifa and his crew during their years of attendance at Taylor Allderdice High School in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Taylor Gang clothing offers selections for men, women, children, and babies as well as accessories.
Taylor gang clothing incorporates a variety of designs, logos and slogans that represent the Taylor Gang lifestyle. Bright colors with bold, high contrast logos and drug related themes are central to the style. Logos include “Taylor Gang,” “TGod,” “Taylor’d,” in thick letters in a variety of fonts. Common prints include skulls, smiley faces, stares, paper airplanes, marijuana leaves, and variations of the converse logo. The shirts are often worn with converse sneakers and beanies.
Men’s clothing features hoodies, t-shirts, sleeveless muscle tees and shorts. Identical designs and patterns are often available on all three-shirt types. Women’s apparel includes hoodies, slim fitting t-shirts, V-necks, sweatpants, thongs and panties. Color schemes prominently feature hot pink, red and black. Kid’s clothing includes sweatshirts, hoodies, and t-shirts. Styles and logos are a smaller version of adult designs, but without any drug related themes. Clothes for infants include bibs, t-shirts and sweatshirts with bright, bold logos and designs. Accessories include beanies, bandanas, blankets, buttons and an iPad sleeve.
Taylor Gang clothing is available from the official Taylor Gang website as well as some third-party websites. Most hoodies and sweatshirts are priced between $30 and $40, while the majority of tee shirts, V-necks, and muscle tees cost between $20 and $30. Kids sweatshirts cost around $30 and kid’s shirts are priced around $20. Beanies and bandanas are around $10 and blankets are $30
Because of its popularity, many knockoff designs have emerged. Although these designs feature the Taylor Gang name, they don’t have the same inspiration and spirit behind them and Khalifa does not endorse them. Thus, if you’re searching for true Wiz Khalifa style, it’s best to stick with products on the official site, rather than save a few bucks by purchasing a knockoff from a different manufacturer.
