Youth in Marvell would give up everything they owned just for their clothes and shoes. In Marvell it’s not about what you have it’s about how you wear it. If you are wearing your clothes and being confident can’t nobody touch you. But if you have the flyest gear and you aren’t confident that’s when you get roasted.

Youth fashion in Marvell is complicated at times because you never know what you can get roasted for. The main thing is when you aren’t matching! You could wear the ugliest stuff, but be matching and considered fly, but when you wear some high priced stuff an aren’t matching, dude you screwed!

In Marvell it’s not really what you got its how you wear it.
