What does swag mean?

Defining the word swag is usually expressed as the free stuff handed out at trade shows, or giveaway items from grand-openings. Others may use the term swag meaning a sense of hip and unique style or pizzazz.

Ask someone “What is swag?” and the responses you’ll hear are never quite the same. 

What does swag stand for? 

Swag Defined on Wall Sign from BoomerSwag.com

“Swag – It’s slang. It’s not an acronym as people think, it’s very similar to the word “chav”, it’s a word that people made into an acronym. Some people say it’s “something we asians got” or “something we americans got”. You could replace the word with “cool” but “swag” can also refer to style, attitude, behavioural traits. You could associate “swag” with the hipster stereotype. Saying someone has swag means that they’re cool, basically.”

A diamond tennis bracelet is probably swag but to others it is “excessive consumption”. Mass media has added a new spin on the meaning of swag. Rap artists have hung their stars on the word, and it has become almost overused in the music world. Now it’s applied to talented athletes, and they call certain basketball shots a swag flip. One faction swears that a popular female singer is “living swag”(?).

What is swag? We’ll just say that it’s similar to the response of an infamous judge asked to define pornography: “It’s hard to define but I know it when I see it”.

Swag is one of those things that defy precise definition. One factor behind this is that, as with beauty, “swag is in the eye of the beholder”. We have continued to discover that to explain, or to attempt to define, what swag is, can be an involved process. Jewelry, clothes, music, cars, food, the ‘swag’ list is vast.

Swag can be something as simple as an Aerosmith t-shirt or as sophisticated as a hand-carved bamboo umbrella. It can be a small candy dish or a huge hang-glider. You can find it on Rodeo Drive or down at your local second-hand store. Swag is stuff for women, men, and everyone young and old. There is indoor swag, outdoor swag, and even all-weather swag. There is swag designed for storing, transporting, and displaying other swag.

We think you’ll like the rock and roll swag gathered here at BoomerSwag. You’ll find dozens of excellent rock music reviews and views in our Boomer Music pages.

Some Wonderfully Awesome Gifts! Excellent leather bag. The smell of leather was present but not strong, it didn’t bother me. First thing I noticed when I received it was the bag, it was a little stiff. I put some Leather CPR on it and it made a big difference. It helped the stiffness a bit. All the connections are sewn or riveted. Someone earlier mentioned glue, but I […]

Can’t Call Your Stuff A Music Collection Without…

If you were a teenager in the 70s and liked rock music, you certainly heard these songs blasting from muscle cars on the strip, or on boom boxes at school, and at parties every weekend. There was an implied agreement that the album was required listening for the ‘rocker’ culture of the Seventies. It was a record that had a significant amount of followers, nearly […]
