    Is it a cigarette in your hand? Is it how well the picture was taken? Good physique?



    How do you obtain swagger? Is there such thing as automatic swagger ie put this this and this on and if it fits, you have swagger?

    I'm not looking so much an answer to every single question, but a discussion and I'm hoping the questions will help direct that.

    Swagger is another way to say "looking cool" and coolness is the social currency of our times.

    Well, I remember when wagthesam posted his fits of KMW, white shirt, shoes, ppl were like OK you got the basics but you still look like crap/you lack swagger.

    graphicnovelty?'s denim jacket fit was criticized for lacking swagger.

    dis thinks that 95% of all waywters lack swagger.

    so what is swagger and why do we lack it?

    isn't the point of the forum to look "cool" no matter if you think cool is a perfectly fitting suit or dripping gothic layers of cashmere and boiled wool? so if you have all the gear why do you lack the cool?

    Correct. Though, if we're talking Jimmy Swag(gart), that's a whole other story.

    Swagger is the ability to wear esoteric or stylish clothing effortlessly, comfortably, unaffectedly, and look damn good doing it every time.

    To have swagger you have to OWN your look.

    something like this. look like you dressed yourself because you like the way you look and not because other people do.

    Way to try to elevate the discussion. Semiotics can eat my ass. btw, I'd say that you have swag.

    swagger? T.I.'s got swagger. LeBron's got swagger. not a bunch of suburban kids wearing button downs, tight jeans, and desert boots... unless you use the terms 'kop' and 'jawnz'. then you can have some internet swaaaaag

    Confidence is different than swagger
