...could we discuss male teen fashion in Zürich?
To all the teen gangster wannabes out there -
You may spray paint gangster rap graffiti on every bus shelter in town.
You may study MTV and act out the rap videos with your friends.
You may even be trying to learn that distinction strut. (And trust me, you've got a ways to go before you actually have rhythm.)
But you are not now, nor will you ever be, a tough talking, badass mutha' from the inner city with your own tale of hardship and survival to tell.
So pull up your pants, go buy some clothes that actually fit you and quit the posing right now. None of us are buying it.
And a special note to the young man I saw walking through the streets of my Swiss town earlier today.
Sean Coombs (Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, whatever) may be able to pull off the dressed all in white super-smooth look. But he is a multimillionaire rap mogul with incredibly hot women dripping from his arms. And he wears that look at clubs, restaurants and other multimillion dollar events in Miami, LA and Las Vegas.
You are most certainly not P. Diddy. It's the middle of the afternoon with no events or gorgeous rap video hotties in sight. And this is Switzerland in January.
By the way, you may want to be more careful about where you sit. Grunge shows up really well on white jeans...
