fake lads like you get wrapped the quickest on road
some pretty nasty shit going on with the popularisation of this 'roadman' business, it shouldnt be glorified, they're literally poor black people in the uk who deets ac, rob phones, sell weed, and dont go inside
they also arent fashionable
don't be stupid and do rudeboy cosplay you'll just get mugged
air max are fine, they look okay on anybody. the full-on look is just retarded and walking around looking like this in london as a middle class kid basically announces to everybody that you just started listening to skepta and post on the basement
it's also reaching peak saturation. go to shoreditch on any weekend and you'll see hundreds of kids named oscar and lucas wearing nike hats, meticulously pinrolled trackies and TNs
>it's also reaching peak saturation. go to shoreditch on any weekend and you'll see hundreds of kids named oscar and lucas wearing nike hats, meticulously pinrolled trackies and TNs
isn't that nuts, that as soon as most people hear of a trend it's not cool anymore
i've never even heard of road rap til like two weeks ago and it's already passe.
thats just because you're not from the UK
the resurgence is seriously because of clothing brands
cav empt used d double e in a lookbook because toby feltwell is british and listens to it anyway
skepta wore supreme in the thats not me video and all the supreme kids attached themselves to something else they considered 'authentic' etc
and then widening fanbase made jump to america etc etc
grime is in general a lot of fun though, don't let the teen fanbase put you off if you're getting into it
>get wrapped the quickest on road
roadmen arent all black. a whole lot of them are white. You sound like a fucking prik
this has been a thing for years
I live near camden and this is literally half the populace
>goes to art school
>self pronounced as "edgy"
>goes to squat raves/'underground' trance clubs
i think just teen boys in general are attracted to stuff they think is 'real' and cool
the problem is clothes become 'the thing' rather than the stuff you wear while you do 'the thing'
they grow out of it (i think)
>i think just teen boys in general are attracted to stuff they think is 'real' and cool
this is generally just most people into style
>the problem is clothes become 'the thing' rather than the stuff you wear while you do 'the thing'
yeah - fashion you moron. You're on /fa/
Is this some /fa/ members? they all look like gimps, whenever I see someone giving advice on /fa/ I remember that these are the type of people handing out that advice and laugh and close my browser
Its jokes to see roadmen has caught on from just everyday slang I hear around my town I thought it was more esoteric.
Fuck roadmen though if you're even in Milton Keynes you'll know what I mean.
Here in Newcastle theres been almost tribal warfare between three groups of teenage lads; radgies, spicers, and roadmen.
Radgies are what most people would call chavs, but slightly different. Their shoes are usually nike tns or 95s, thought 90s are not uncommon. Trousers are tracksuit bottoms, either fleece or polyester. Berghaus jackets and especially fleeces are a must. This might sound like typical chavcore but they also mix in football hooligan elements (especially when going "to toon" or going to see the match. Casually, this is shown by the fact that they often wear brands like paul and shark, sergio taccini, and that kind of thing. They listen to nothing but new monkey makina tunes.
Spicers are those people with "meet me at mcdonalds" haircuts and those adidas condivo training pants. They often wear either huaraches or zx fluxs on their feet, with adidas training pants, and puffer jackets. They're much more likely to be middle class than radgies and realisticly are a larger but less pro-active and defensive group than radgies. They listen to grime.
Roadmen are just any nonwhite youth and dress like typical roadmen, speak with a strange mixture of geordie and london youth slang, and are often seen hanging around outside eat 4 less. They listen to grime.
Radgies and roadmen can get along reasonably well, though radgies see the other group as "fake", while roadmen see radgies as being "stupid white bois". Spicers look up to roadmen and clearly want to be them, though recognising that they're white middle class boys, accept that that isn't going to happen. They're know to be scared of roadmen, so get no respect from them. Radgies and spicers are absolute sworn enemies; radgies think spicers are a bunch of "melts" who "don't even sniff bubble" and spicers hate radgies for the same reason everyone else hates chavs.

do you know how hilarious it is to hear 17 year old white girls in lightwash jeans and maroon turtlenecks from topshop talking like the same guys who will shank you for absolutely no reason?
senpai just go fuck your dad. Stop tryna act like youre "roadman" cos youll just look like a retard and youll get shanked round my ends (N17). Especially if youre white.
People on the streets dont wear specific clothes, they just dress casual thats its. Trying to dress like a "roadman" doesnt look good because guess what, its not designed to. The word roadman and all the levels and the posts like OPs pic started out as a joke to make light of the people in the streets. Ive only heard in real life roadman used ironically because thats what it is ,a joke. Yet now all you faggots see something gaining attention and try to replicate it as its some kind of competition as to see who is the most edgiest or the biggest attention-seeker. Who the fuck are you trying to impress?
Did your parents not love you enough that you spend all your days taking fashion advice from NEETs telling you to dress up like a retard so you can get attention from random strangers. Just shut your life.
P.S if youre gonna use the word roadman, at least get it right. Roadmen are almost always black. Yourre posting chavs in this thread.
This guys is actually right. People who actually wear this shit and do road get arrested so fucking fast and only teens wear this shit because they watch too much pacmantv and GRM Daily
i can guarantee you're all white, why do you want to act/look like niggers so badly? it's very cringey and sad to see
made one of those posts, im black and from a poor area
the slang at the start of my post was intended as a joke, but i genuinely believe that this 'roadman' business should not be popularised in the way it is, and that it isnt cool or slylish if you've actually seen it and aren't some poser kid
not even a particularly rare to witness or experience, so im amazed it's managed to catch on as 'cool'
once again, literally poor black people committing pretty crime, not sure about why this is 'cutting edge fashion'
you cant guarantee anything desu
Anyone living in London fully knows dressing like this you're asking for trouble
If you're not in London then you'll be fine, dress however you want to dress, but honestly speaking this isnt a 'core' i'd recommend walking around in
