If you have not yet seen the video it can be viewed on http://thegenuinefakes.tv where you will be able to watch loads of cool Lindy Hop moves together with an interesting wardrobe!

Lindy Hop

We totally like The Swedish Dancesport Federation and would once more like to thank our Lindy Hop friends who made it possible to shoot such a cool video!

Dressed for success

The fakes costume not only looks great – it feels great! The key to success is to have the correct shoes, pants, shirt, tie but to really nail the outfit more than clothes is required.

Shoes (a.k.a Fakers).
The shoes that are also known as “Fakers” are the standard Converse All Stars as shown in the picture below.

Pants
The pants can be tough to find – a pair of colored jeans in your favorite fake-color (tough to find is a total understatement, which store has yellow pants?!?). Joey wears red, Mårty wears white, Johnny wears blue and I wear yellow.

Tie
The tie should be thin and striped in two colors – black and the color of your pants.

Shirt
The shirt is a standard short-sleeved fine shirt, pitch black!

Stache
Then, to nail the outfit a mustache is required or as our friend Johnny Fake once said:

Never be caught in public with a bare upper lip.
– Johnny Fake – 2007

That will be a cool name for an album…

That’s it for this time folks…
