This is a two part thread. The first part is answering the question in the title. The second part is this: Here's what I've noticed. In Europe and India, people pop their collars, and it's cool. In America, people who pop their collars seem like douchebags. Why? In India the cricket players do it to keep the sun off their backs (function). Some people copied the fashion and it looks cool. Whatever. So how come when people in America pop their collar, it gives off "I'm a huge douche bag" vibes, but in Europe and India, it doesn't? I cannot figure this out. They're doing the same exact thing but yet it's sending a different message. There has to be something I'm missing here. It's either something different that they're doing that I'm subconsciously picking up on, or it's something intangible that cannot be explained. Is there some difference in attitude or something? Help, please.
