For pimp-ass mofos
when one pinches the sides of your collar, usually
on a polo
or dress-shirt. You pinch
the sides, and pull them up in self appraisal. It's a way of saying to the world, "look at how great I am". Almost exclusively male.
For preppy teenaged
boys and girls;
when the boy or girl unfolds the collar of a polo
so that it stands straight
up around the neck. It's supposed
to be 'cool', but you can sometimes
come off looking like Batman.
For gangstas; "You were popping your collar
when I told you how sharp you looked in that velour suit."
For preps; "Nick was popping his collar
in class today. At first I thought
were cold, but then I realized he thought
it was 'cool'."
