Wow, some of you are either stupid or just willfully ignorant. A simple google search could have given you an accurate history of sagging pants.

Sagging Pants History

Prison Culture » Sagging Pants, Criminality, and Prison Clothing

"Some people still believe that this notorious trend was an African-American creation which was eventually embraced by the mainstream culture. There are some more versions which associate the trend of sagging pants with homosexuality and the world of crime, wherein criminals used these loose clothing to hide their weapons. These things were however dismissed as baseless allegations, owing to lack of substantial evidence."


Being raped HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT and it did not originate from black culture.



Damn people, do some research, it's really not that hard.


@Hollytree Who's the "moron" now?

Black culture? Sorry not all black people are the same. From prison culture to Hip hop culture is more accurate, but being black doesn't mean you like hip hop and vice versa. You should really call it youth culture, because people born from around 1970s-1990s of all classes and ethnic groups are likely to do it.

Just curious has anyone every hollered "pull up your drawers" when seeing these saggers in public? I have been so tempted to many times at the extremist saggers, but never have.

I think the skinny pants saggers are even dumber as they have to either grab the excess fabric in their crotch or else hold onto their belt loop or waistband so they can walk without tripping. Morons!

They don't bother me because they are so funny. I just laugh. In fact, thanks to this thread, I will be keeping an even better eye out for them.

I think to top off the look though, they need to have a baseball cap on sideways. That really looks stupid!

Why are you so preoccupied with the whole "men looking at men's butts" angle???

I don't know that he or she is that preoccupied with it. The gay butt sex theory has been repeated over and over again for years now. People constantly make fun of it in news articles and discuss it on Facebook. Pretty much everyone has heard that story before.

I thought this was an awesome solution to students sagging at school:
Students get 'Urkeled' for baggy pants

So the sagging pants is an "I'm ready to be had" fashion then. Pretty ugly meaning.

But I doubt the middle class morons who've adopted this "fashion" have any idea exactly what they're advertising.

We have the ghetto prison culture influencing boy's fashions and Madonna- the ultimate tramp in underwear- still influencing the girls. Pardon me while I gag.

A similar phenomenon is the rings in the noses and piercing stuff- started with the bondage & discipline underground- now it's -pardon me whilst I gag again- mainstream???
