Sagging pants pulled down to show underpants. Seriously - when is this fashion going to die?

A couple of weeks ago I was sitting on a tram when this guy gets on and sits opposite me. His pants were so low he was literally sitting just on his underpants with his jeans round his thighs. All I could think was he looked like he was sitting on a toilet.

Yesterday I was with my kids at the park. There was this guy with sagging pants pushing his daughter on the swing. Except that he had to push his daughter with one hand and hold his pants to stop them falling down with the other (very loose pants). Then as he walked away, his pants did fall down. Hilarious.

In the summer I went to the beach. There was a group of teenagers nearby with the boys trying to impress a group of girls. All the boys had underpants on underneath their saggy swimming gear. One guy was constantly adjusting his pants up and down so he had just the right amount of underwear showing. The girls unimpressed went swimming with the boys following on in tow like sheep. Who goes swimming in two pairs of pants??

There is always a ton of stuff floating about on the internet / facebook ridiculing this fashion.
Here's a blog with some examples. I love the guy in the supermarket with the trousers round his ankles and the story about the burglar who was caught because of his pants.

There have been stupid fashions in the past but to me this one is by far the stupidest.

Anyone else agree?

I agree! I'm 33yrs old and have seen some outlandish fashion fads in my lifetime but this whole skinny jeans/low sagging fashion trend has to be the most stupid fashion trend EVER! First of all it CANT be comfortable. Secondly, you look like a complete idiot!

It is stupid. And disgusting. To walk around making one's rear a focal point is just downright disrespectful to yourself and to society at large. No one wants to have to view another's backside or their underwear in such a tacky way. Teaching our kids that if someone doesn't have enough self respect to pull up their pants, then you must have enough self respect to not associate with that person.

In its early days, the fad put others on notice that the wearer was available for anal sex.

We had a discussion of this on another board, and one woman who works in Corrections said it originated in prisons as a signal for "I'm available and willing." That's why the butt is hanging out. She said she wanted to have business cards printed up with the story of that fashion trend, so she could just hand them out to every guy she sees in droopy drawers!

Yup. It's dumb. Maybe if we don't call attention to it, it will lose its shock-appeal and just go away, and then all those guys will just have to advertise their submissiveness to anal sex another way.

This is NOT TRUE.

Please do a little research next time:

Oh, and I'm anticipating the "Wikipedia isn't right" comment. Go check other sources and you'll see...

I kind of like that fashion.

It doesn't bother me one bit and I think the laws prohibiting sagging pants are asinine.


But I'll tell you a fashion that I don't like and that's the "never worn baseball cap" fashion. You know the one where the cap is straight as can be and looks like it was just pulled off a shelf. Many times still has the tag on it. That one I don't like.

I detest this look. Who in their right mind wants to shuffle along while using one hand to hold up their pants? It makes no sense to me.
