Shizzle Sherlock – File
Dancehall fashion enigma Gary Sherlock of Sherlock Family is distancing himself from former group member Shizzle Sherlock after the popular dancehall personality wore what appeared to be a female dress to a popular dancehall session.
According to Gary Sherlock, who started the fashion group, he endorses the controversial fashion trend which was made popular by American rapper Kanye West, however, Shizzle Sherlock went overboard because he wore pink and his attire looked too feminine.
“It’s a new fashion trend the dude (Shizzle Sherlock) that was wearing it is not a part of Sherlock Family anymore and I wouldn’t wear that. It should not have been that long straight to his foot. I don’t even like the whole thing because it is pink as well. That is a dress, a lady’s Sunday dress and it’s not because we are not friends again,” he said.
Gary Sherlock says he has dabbled with the fashion trend himself, but that he knows how to coordinate his attire so that it maintains a sense of masculinity.
“It needs a blazer over it because you have to show that it is a man thing. I am a trend-setter, but that gone overboard, that is a female dress. A we first draw for dah fashion deh after Kanye come een with it. But wi add our twist to it,” Gary Sherlock said.
Popular dancer John Hype also commented on Shizzle’s outfit, saying that males and females should not be wearing the same clothing.
“A woman wear dress. A pants mi wear and mi nuh mek fashion and style wear me, a me wear style and fashion. Americans can do certain things and get away with it, but around this side it’s a different law,” John Hype said.
On the international scene, Kanye West has been receiving just as much flack from rap veterans who feel that the Yeezus rapper is pushing the boundaries of fashion too far.
