    Its all about being comfortable and everybody knowing it... without actually addressing it directly, obviously lol.
    take any rediculously fly suit u see on a red carpet worn by the swagger dripping guys showing the world again and again how to be awesome and gaining that ability through years and years of little intangible lessons that have added up to the end product that you see and put it on say, william hung... would he then suddenly be dripping with swagger? clearly the answer is no. go google image "donk"... that explains it all.

    Looking comfortable is one aspect of it, but not the beginning and end of the term. There are a lot of guys wearing dad jeans and NASCAR shirts with trucker hats who look pretty comfortable. No one would say they have swag.

    I usually equate "swag" to a mixture of looking comfortable and perhaps more importantly, not letting your clothes wear you. Go through the WAWYT thread and you'll see many examples where "swag" is absent. It's often because these people don't look comfortable in their own clothes. It's not a matter of how much your shirt cost. If you don't look natural in it, you might as well be wearing something from Wal-Mart.

    It's not so much a tangible thing. It's more an aura you give off. That comes mostly from your personality, not the clothing you cover yourself with.

    I think Kanye's entourage is the antithesis of swagger. Kanye isn't necessarily, but I hate him anyways so I'm not going to give him any compliments other than he doesn't look like a total fucking clown.
