Pull Up Your Saggy Baggy Pants

Fashion trends seem to come and go.  Jelly shoes, Crocs, coulottes, maxi dresses, mini dresses, micro miniskirts, acid wash jeans...  I could go on, and often do.  In today, out tomorrow.  Some trends are gone so long that they come back into style, like all the sudden interest in the Mad Men era.  I don't really mind fashion trends.  They are often weird and arbitrary, but they make life entertaining, to say the least. While I don't necessarily partake of these trends(me in a micro mini? HAHA!), I don't mind that others do.

But whoever decided that wearing pants slung so low on the hips that we can all see that you're wearing underpants?  Needs to be smacked repeatedly upside the head with stinky socks.  I can't drive down the street or walk in the mall without passing some boy/man with his pants at his thighs, practically mooning me.

Droopy drawers were a thing back in the day when infants wore cloth diapers.  Everyone from that era has at least one picture of themselves standing with a diaper drooping about chubby knees.  That is what sll these saggy pants remind me of: droopy, stinky diapers that need changing. What was cute when you were a year old, however, looks ridiculous at fourteen. It looks ridiculous at twenty, too. And also forty.  Let's just say that it looks ridiculous at any age over two.

Nobody wants to see your underpants, fellas.  If we did, everyone would wear their underpants on the outside of their outfits, and they wouldn't be such a big deal.  It is called underwear for a reason, people! It is not supposed to be worn on the outside.  People aren't supposed to see your Green Lantern Underoos unless you've been in an accident and can't help it.  Underwear is supposed to be something that only those people closest to you get to see. 

I know that kids have to be cool, and in order to be cool they have to follow the fickle dictates of their fellow teens. There has to be another way. I know teens wear things just to annoy adults; surely there is some other piece of clothing on which to bestow this honor. I know young men have to prove themselves; find another way.  I've been waiting for this particularly heinous one to over.  Yet saggy baggy pants are still here! Arrgh! Go away already! 

3.) Talk about a trend you don’t care for.

  1. I couldn't agree more. They look ridiculous. And I do wonder what magic keeps some of the droopiest pants from hitting the ground. I mourn the lost are of denim butt checking out--when the butt of the pants is hanging about the knees there's nothing to check out.

  2. I am with you on this. Here in MO the gang influence on this is not as strong, but some of the boys are wearing the pants low down.

  3. Superman was the only adult to successfully get away with outer-underwear - and he's not even human!!!!

  4. I agree with you. Somehow having underwear show is pretty offensive to me. And I do not understand the need to actually wear pants if the goal is to show everybody your underwear (Just go without pants!).

  6. Very nice post thanks for sharing.

  7. I concur with you. Some way or another having clothing show is truly hostile to me. What's more, I don't comprehend the need to really wear pants if the objective is to indicate everyone your clothing (Just abandon pants!). UK Dissertation Writing Service
