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

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

    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.
    Uncontrol is one swaggery mothafucka then (5). J.Kissi is too (0).

    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

    its how you carry yourself. it's being natural and cool, all while only being yourself. it's an attitude, you either have it or don't. swagger is not related to wearing nice clothes, you don't need nice clothes to have swagger.

    On here? "Swagger" is a rhetorical device.

    After all, who could possibly not be in favor of it?

    It's a bit like how GW Bush used to use "freedom".

    If you ask this you have no swagger. Swagger is a vibe, it can not be measured.

    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.


    u dont has it.
