BANDELEROS / TRUCK DRIVER / MALE PASSERSBY AND MALES ON BICYCLE
You guys are all supposed to look you're from the streets. Rough and tough. I am including some images below that are from the streets of Caracas, Venezuela. There's a lot of black denim, faded black denim, grey denim, stonewashed and acid wash denim, track jackets, graphic tees, polo shirts that are over sized, tank tops and tank top tees, ball caps, bandannas, sneakers, woven belts and woven shoes. I don't notice much jewelry or wallet chains or things like that. We should have some color here. but we should make sure that we mix in the blacks and greys so that it makes you look tougher. Make sure that you all bring as many options of things as you can so that we will have enough choices for all of you. Remember, some of you are also in the photo as Soccer Fans so you will need a different kind of clothing options for that and then your rough and tough clothes for these characters.
