CREW COLORS.
The tradition of self promotion goes back centuries old, people from all  walks of life have used different methods in one way or another to  promote themselves. in Bboy culture aside from catching wreck &  battling the use of personalized clothing items are also essential. the  most commonly used form is the flock letter, usually in a old english  font or cooper bold. this practice can be traced to early 70’s biker  gangs. Biker gangs use them on cut off denim jackets or leather vests. every  gang has their  system in which the members have to earn these patches,  one just doesn’t get the whole name at once. gradually through different  actions & time in the gang you earn a patch at a time. the early  70’s Bboys who grew up around these gangs, some who were either in those  gangs or had siblings in them chose to adopt the use of these patches  on T-shirts & denim jackets to represent their crew & individual  names. this also created another incentive to keep training &  continue to get better at their skills. no real Bboy wants to look  whack! even more so while wearing their crew colors/patches. you’re  representing not only yourself but the whole crew & their history.
