The ”shirt-wrapped-waist” trend

I had this endless argument (discussion as she would call it) with my girlfriend in regards to the amount of shirts, in particular the amount of check-shirts that i owned in my wardrobe. I had to come up with a plan with what i was going to do with all these shirts, as i felt at some point she would donate all the shirts to some hospice sooner or later.

I remember soon after Chris Brown dropped his hit song ”Loyal”, in the music video we saw him pull off the ”shirt-wrapped-around-waist” trend which if i recall we used to do as kids when you were tired of having to carry your jacket/shirt around but would end up wrapping it around your waist. But as adults after a few well known celebrities and hip-hop artist starting doing these things it all becomes normal at this age or so we seem to feel.

This left me with no choice, thanks to the help of Breezy with just the right idea and option i needed to put the shirts i had to a good, very good use. I had to find some inspiration before going ahead and doing this, as i know my girlfriend too well and she wouldn’t let me down easily if i came up with this plan and it failed. If it had to fail i think that much more than just my shirts  would have ended up at the local hospice.

Check out the ”shirt-wrapped-around-waist” trend just as it is meant to be done. If these guys could do it, sure we all could.
