Taylored

adjective eponym, suffixation
A way of life characterized by individuality, free-living, and just being yourself. Someone who lives a taylored lifestyle doesn’t try to conform to societal norms and just does whatever makes them happy.
 
The term is most commonly used by fans of the rap artist Wiz Khalifa, who coined the term. Wiz Khalifa calls his fanbase the Taylor Gang, and the Taylor Gang movement is all about expressing yourself, having fun and being an individual, thus leading to the formation of the eponym/adjective taylored to describe this lifestyle. The term is mainly used by stoners, or heavy-pot users, as a way of describing their lifestyle of carefree living and substance abuse. Although this is true, the term isn’t always associated with smoking marijuana.
Etymology : Suffixation of –ed onto taylor(from the name of Wiz khalifa’s fanbase)eponym
