    Or have you really not seen the swarms of thugged-out Asians of all descriptions? Up here in the NE, it's very common. Who knows why? Presumably, the Asian community.


    Not really - I have seen the thugged-out East Asians, just not the South Asians.

    Sorry. Didn't mean it in that sense at all.
    Yeah, if it weren't you, I think I would likely have taken that the same way. My thread about A|X back when I first came here drew out some more sincerely racist comments, and it seems a surprisingly touchy subject.

    I'm pretty sure you can find any ethnic group popularly thugged out somewhere in this country.

    The "thugged out" around here seem to be South Asians. But we have a huge south asian population in California.

    No, none of them shop at A|X. There is not one within 500 miles of here. Also I would recognize the designs.

    Dusty, have you solved this mystery yet? I am dying to know as well. Maybe you should ask.

    We don't know definitively, but I think the consensus is that they buy in India from Indian labels that take stylistic cues from American and European brands. Still no recognizable branding.

    youre right they are getting it from india. alot of college students who are indian but didnt grow up in the US wear clothing from india because of preference and practical reasons. the extrem flares and tight leg jeans are often worn with tight, bright colored shirts or knock off t shirts. There are no real discernible brands among most Indian youth in India. Most people wear inexpensive indian or chinese facotry made jeans. Ask the people you see wearing clothing like this and they could probably help get some of that tyep of clothing for pretty cheap.

    maybe ask them?

    A) I don't know any, and B) I'm not going to ask somebody where they shop if I don't like their clothes. If they respond with "Oh, you like it?," I'm trapped!

    oh, you don't like it? i thought this thread was made because you wanted to buy this stuff

    i'm curious now, i don't think i've ever seen the styles that you're describing

    you should consider taking a couple of discrete photos with a cameraphone, and posting them in this thread

    Meh, Fubu, Enyce, Timberland, etc. 3 sizes up is the standard, real thugs go for 5 sizes up.

    Not a bad idea, but as I've lamented in other threads, I can't get pics off my phone without buying a special dongle (and that's $15 you're NOT getting from me, Motorola!).

    You can buy a Bluetooth dongle from other manufacturers.

    My computer has built-in Bluetooth and it wouldn't work. I suspect it's a proprietary dongle.
