If you've ever seen swag fags, they give a pretty great example of how not to be lol.
But at the same time, I don't think you're much better with this whole class thing. I've seen so many dudes try to pull this and end up just looking like betas. I thought it was common sense but apparently it's not these days: anything you do to try and get people to think of you a certain way (especially girls), then you're a chump however you dress or act.
Where's ruggedly handsome? Swag looks juvenile, like a young kid trying to look all hood when they're not. Class looks a bit snobby. Neither one of those types of guys would look like fun to go camping with or who could fix a flat.
Class. Swag always looks stupid. The amount of boys and girls who walk past my work who are walking like their right leg has forgotten what to do and "you what mateeeee"ing down the street is crazy. They honestly look uneducated. At least with a classy look, it looks like you could go on a date without a bib...
Where I come from "swag: generally means that a guy dresses really well or someone who is very confident with they're style. So, technically both guys have swag I guess? As for style, I love the guy on the bottom's shoes so, I will have to go with that one.
I'd actually go for a bit of both. Being presentable is of course most definitely rated above joggers, but the 'swag' of a personality aka holding your own being a bit banterous and showing confidence without being overly cocky is my type of personality.
I would say a guy with class, I mean honestly who wouldn't want someone who is respectful of YOU and your time together. looks aren't everything but how they act can effect how they appear to others. That's just my opinion
Class. I avoid swag like its plague. But almost worse than the attitude is the smell. No one wants you to smell like you've lived in a can of axe body spray (or anything else really) since you hit puberty. Smell good, look good even when dressed down, and be nice, genuinely nice.
Why can't they have both? Just because you have swag doesn't mean you can't have class. People say I'm "clatchet" which is classy and ratchet. Because my outfits are my style, half classy/sporty/swagger out. I am on honor role for everything I do and volunteer a bunch yet I'm always wearing a pair of Jordans. I also preform classical music. Both.
I can guarantee you from personal experience class always has and always will win out over swag. Swag is for kids and schmucks, class is for men and grownups but class goes far beyond your mere appearance it is a frame of mind, behavior and way of life as well.
class but many people's view of class is different. To be honest I would never consider rolled up pants/capris or whatever the gentleman is wearing in your picture "classy." Nor would I consider not wearing socks with those shoes... but many would disagree.
