Contemporary Fashion

Just a bit of rambling.. Plenty of young people wearing cap, loose baggy pants, huge necklaces and sunglasses can nowadays can be seen hanging around in malls, gas stations (at night) and just about anywhere. My beef with these people is that they are trying to emulate the lifestyle of decadent western youth. These kind of outfits are normally associated with street gangs and drive by shootings. In one television show, a parent once called the attention of his son and informed him that these kind of fashion actually originated in prison, the swagger included. Why include the swagger? I surmise that the walk originated from prisoners who had to drag chains and metal balls while walking.
