No, not that one.  This fresh prince is not from Bel Air, but the streets of Newark.  Clinton and Bergen, to be exact.  Run by Clinton Jeans, the concept is a high-end urban boutique.  Here is the company overview, lifted from their Facebook page:

Company Overview:
Clinton Jeanz is a Men’s high end contemporary and Streetwear boutique, located in Newarks main artery; Clinton ave and Bergen…
Mission:
To provide New cutting edge looks, for a market that people have turned their backs on…

Silver lettering at the bottom of the window announces a humorous “general’s warning,” which reads as follows: “Being fresh may cause stares, boost confidence, random inquiries, and compliments.”
