I have not jumped on that dark-rimmed train. Probably because, as my family would also agree, I am one gurl who strays from the masses. I’m asking myself: Is it a style, a trend, a movement, a cultural shift or just a love affair with all things uncool? To me it’s an emulation of the child (via 1970’s and earlier) who has an appointment with the school bully. But I don’t care. I think that it’s all a superficial adaption that’s working well for some people.
So back to what a geek is truly: A geek, I believe, has obsessive, esoteric knowledge about mass media, pop culture and technology. Geeks are generally smart, they’re passionate about things most people don’t care about, and most of them tend to be early adopters when it comes to the latest gadgets. So, conclusion and caution: those who wear it may not be true geeks but rather, posers. Sorry to break it to you.
Jay-z can pull it off but then again, he is a metrosexual man who does style well.
Before men were yelled at to keep a button down shirt and a pair of Italian Loafers in their closet, Common had his swagger ahead of that game. He really look like Malcomb X (also his style is inspired by him I believe). Open a school of style and all men must enroll!!!
