What the hell? First off, notice that the "popped collar" is functional, likely inspired by traditional English designs. Not that that matters. Second, a "gino" brand? Seriously, what the fuck is the matter with you?
What's the matter? Come to Montreal and go to just about any nightclub, and then you'll see what's the matter. Popped collars are like the calling cards of grease balls in this country. They're so lame.
You know I just came back for a 2 week vacation in Argentina, and I stayed mostly in Buenos Aires with excursions to La Plata and Rosario and with an Italian / Spanish population as big as the one found in Argentina you would think that someone would have sported a popped collar. But, alas... Jon. Oh, yeah: P.S. only a person of low erudition and intellect would degrade an entire segment of the human population based on narrow-minded and stereotypical notions, expressed through unimaginative slurs. To echo L.A. Guy, what the fuck is the matter with you?
A gino is not refering to a race. It's refering to an All American Jackass. "Ginos" wear popped collars, Von Dutch hats, Burberry scarves, often are head to toe in Lacoste. The specific Gino style really started with stuff you'd find at Monaco... or the upper end ones wear a lot of A/X. It's a look I'm refering to, one of brand whores. People here seem to use the term "Chav" quite freely, but there seems to be no uproar about how demeaning it truely is. So save the "what the fuck is wrong with you" and put it down your own throat.[/quote] My, My, My. Such temper. I see that you did not denounce your use of grease ball, did you? For all your raving towards a centrist potion after that of which you have posted, you are unable to back up your argument with credible proof your new, apparently tolerant position. Sad really. If I would have noticed another ethnic slur used in the forum I would have denounced it then, but alas I am unable to be everywhere at once. Jon. The only thing currently going down my throat is Godiva White Chocolate Cream Heart's.
