I don't much care where it originated. It just looks like indecent exposure, and ugliness.

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?

Not only that, but the boxers (which were plaid, and I'm sure the guy wasn't Irish or Scottish) were stuck in the crack of his butt. AND they had a hole, to boot. He may as well have been naked, really.

Okay now, I'm no prude, but honestly, I'm not interested in looking at anyone's butt cheeks unless it's a man I'm wild about, and we're in bed.

This "fashion" is just plain rude. And fine, I can see how these men might want women looking at their posterior, but don't these men HATE other men looking at their posterior? Or maybe they like it, I don't know. What's the story here?
I don't wear sagging pants but I do wear ripped up holy jeans. Sometimes the seat is blown out a bit. I always wear boxers with any pants, so it's not like whites in tights under there. Mine usually match my shirt I'm wearing for the day. If it's a blue shirt, it's blue boxers plaid with like colors. Franky, I don't care and I've never had other men stare. These are work pants when I have to do something really nasty. I don't want to ruin my good clothes for that type of stuff. As for the saggy draws...buy a belt and pull 'em up. Don't buy sizes twice too big. Simple fix.

When you mentioned work clothes a question popped into my brain... Are there any jobs anywhere that are okay with hiring people that wear sagging jeans that have to be held up and begin below the behind?

I never understood that style, never liked either.

Apparently there is because I see guys with saggers working as cashiers and at retail stores. A former neighbor was an extreme sagger and I don't know where he worked, but he came home with his briefs soiled to a almost black color showing almost the entire brief when he stomped up his porch to come in every evening. I assumed he was in construction, though you would think sagging would be a safety hazard.

It is a safety hazard. Also, can you imagine if women were working with their blouses open, exposing their bras? They'd be fired so fast!!!

Sheesh.
