FASHION SENSE: ICEBERG DEAD AHEAD!

Iceberg - prominent fashion company formed in 1974 by The Gilmar Group, based in San Giovanni, Italy

Once upon a time...I planned to meet a few of my boys at Perhaps Our Favorite Store in NYC — Macy's in Herald Square. As we browse through each designer department in search of an ill outfit for the evening's festivities, I spotted this navy blue coat on top of the Iceberg showcase shelf. Although the Iceberg clothing brand seemed to have die-out after Young Hov became Old Hov, I personally do not follow or ride the current trends.

My motto is, "If that sh*t is hot, it's hot!"

With that being said, I pointed the Iceberg coat to my boy and we both simultaneously acknowledged to each other, "That coat is hot!"

I grabbed for the price-tag: $597.00

And so, the best I could do was take a pic of it...[see above]...for it was way out of my price range.

After this occurrence, it brought back some memories on how "exclusive" Iceberg use to be for the Hip-Hop community  — a symbol of status & style. Therefore, I began checking online reminiscencing on past Jay-Z quotables:

"I like they shoes Gucci / I like new coochie
I f*cked a few groupies / In a few hoopties
I got em iceberg sh*t / They thought I knew Snoopy
""Snoopy Track" by Jay-Z feat. Juvenilel. Produced by Timbaland.
 

"Jeah, and on that note / Iceberg Slim is back to rock a boat, c'mon!""F*ck All Night" by Jay-Z feat. Pharrell Williams. Produced by The Neptunes.

I also checked the web for the latest Iceberg coats and here is what I found:
