    When i was a kid we used to call it Street Wear ... just baggy clothing like pants that are bellow your ass ... long tshirts with some super hero or whatever shit on them ... different hats wearing with scarfs and etc ...

    Swag is just like the clothing ... its by far not a Type of life like most of the kids on the streets talk about its just an rebellious type of shit that people like to do i myself like to wear baggy clothing to especially when i am skateboarding or snowboarding but i do wear normal suits and etc...

    Eventually everyone grows out of that kind of thing...

    Swag..is much more than how you dress. It's, more or less how you carry yourself.
    It's not about dressing fancy.

    trey i won't say anything because well this kind of style fits you ... from the photos i have seen which you post but seriously its not how you ''carry yourself'' its just a style ... which used to be an really awesome style called hip hop with baggy pants and etc and a sense of freedom which turned into this shit because of justin bieber and other little girls that started dressing like this ... i like my style and i like how people dress up and call it ''swag'' ...

    But here is a challenge for you Try finding a normal job with your ''swag'' since you say its how you carry yourself ... i bet all those who are saying that work in supermarkets ... nbt that i got anything against that ... but swag won't carry you trough your whole life....

    Which is why I own 2 express photographer's suits. Like I said, swag isn't about how you dress but how you carry yourself.

    You can keep the baggy jeans and XXXXXL T shirts.

    I agree with this.

    The term "swag" has branched out to multiple meanings. Clothing style can be swag, an aura/presence can be swag, and even other inanimate objects can be considered "swag." Consider the term "swag" as a replacement for "cool," but with a little more oomph.

    I don't know how you came to this conclusion, but you don't have to be a douche to have swag. A dreamy guy's attractive walk and charming commentary delivery can be considered "swagger." You don't have to have arm *****es and sexually harass women on the street.

    Moreover, if you ever attend nerd conventions, they usually have hand-outs that are called "swag bags." It's just a bag with neat promotional items in it such as flyers, pins, stickers, comics, etc. AKA, a bag of "cool" shit.

    Swag is an old term that used to be the free promo merchandise you got from concerts, magazines etc. Like, old Playstation magazines would give out "free swag" in their magazines in the form of posters, game demo CDs, etc. It's been appropriated by hip-hop culture to mean fancy clothes, acting like a douchebag, etc.

    Swagger is the way you carry yourself, your confidence, etc. "That dude's got swagger", ie he's really confident and probably has lots of sex with pretty ladies.
