    Whether in timbs or flats
    Jeans or slacks
    A gangstafied brim or a baseball cap
    I'm stuck on being unique
    so I preach finesse to the streets
    Sharp from my head to my feet
    My pants are stitched with a crease
    I'm out here playing for keeps

    No need to try and impress
    I'm not concerned with the rest
    I just like looking my best
    so my appearance in fresh
    It's nothing more nothing less

    I keep a tight tailored fade
    Primpin' like I was on stage
    Women forget to behave
    When their eyes look this way

    I'm stepping out with a strut
    Don't think I'm doing too much
    Just think I'm doing enough
    That boy there can't be touched

    & when I dig in the scene
    You know I'm doing my thing
    I push my car with a lean
    Reclining back as I preen

    I hold my head with a smile
    A master of my own style
    Been doing this for a while
    My daddy first showed me how
    Now he can't help but be proud

    He told me boy do yo thing
    'member to primp fo' you preen
    take your time when you dress
    make sure you lookin' your best

    it is so good to know that someone is completely comfortable with who they are and how they dress...regardless of what others may think..there should be a lot more of it...too many worry about fitting in with the masses...

    Ah ha!

    Well go on with ya bad self! I like...I like..."Cause a girl goes crazy about a well dressed man!" ZZ Topps
    But, I would have to agree with Kitana, good to see you are comfortable with who you are and maintain yourself to exemplify that sense of pride your Dad gave you. I don't believe that clothes make the man, but I do know that a well dressed man leaves a "**** Good Impression"!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Blessings on Ya house!:peace:
