I can't prove that the whole sagging thing is actually a plot by law enforcement to make their job easier, but I suspect it.

The 21-year-old was subsequently tackled and arrested on charges of robbery, ass-ault, and "looking like a fool."

About a block later, the Post says, "his pants were completely around his ankles."

I don't feel like weeping for humanity today, so I'll just settle for laughing at this dumb sack of shiat

Isn't sagging how inmates let each other know they're open to gay buttsects?

A while back I saw a guy with some severe sagging trying to run to catch a bus.  Big guy, muscular, but the pants at knee level made him mince along in baby steps.  He didn't make the bus.  I couldn't even laugh, really, it was so pathetic.

No, just an urban legend. It's a fashion statement started by gun-toting dealers. The gun causes the sag.

No, but for some reason middle-aged white guys always say this as if they have their finger on the pulse of early twenty-something black culture, and that said people wearing saggy pants (young and black) are unbeknownst of this knowledge.
 
2013-08-28 03:05:44 PM
But, seriously folks...  How does anyone consider this to be a cool fashion statement any more.  Isn't being made fun of constantly enough to make you think twice?
For that matter, how the hell can that be comfortable anyway?!

heh.  If someone tried to jack my ride, I'd be like, "Sure, whatever, have at it.  Sucker."  That thing has a tricky 2nd gear, and the knob keeps coming off.  Super glue doesn't do squat.  Maybe that metal putty-like crap will...

If your gun is sagging so far it's below butt-level, you'll probably have trouble getting it out in a pinch if you actually need it.

On the other hand, silly fashion favored by petty criminals that makes them easier to get caught is fine by me.

If your gun is pulling your pants down below butt level, it's just going to keep pulling them all the way down. I think the look is more of a bluff that there's something pulling your pants down, like a gun. If you really want to carry a gun in your waistband you have to keep your pants tight and pulled up.

Are you sure he didn't just shiat his pants?

i've tried to understand the aesthetic desire for sagging pants, and quite frankly, i believe i've figured it out.

way back in the day, one of the more commendable things in a warrior's physique were his knees.  I'm talking greek phalanx days.  a big part of a successful phalanx was born on the knees of the soldiers.  think of a line of scrimmage, you want to push your shield into the guy in front of you and push him back.  once you've got the other side moving back, you can start taking shots with the spear, because they're off balance.

So, knees were a sign of good soldier worthiness.  look at old greek art, and everybody's legs are the big deal.

this remained true until about the time warfare dramatically changed with mounted combat for the rich, improvements in weapons, armor, etc.  at this point, a strong middle became very important.  a large torso would show powerful core muscles, and strong balance.  also, around this time, arms and shoulders started to matter, as can be reflected in the fashions desire for puffy shoulders and sleeves.

so, look at fashion from this period, huge torsos.  for example, henry the VIII.  big torso which is exaggerated by the fashion of having a large tunic with a low slung belt, hanging below to make large thighs.  herein lies the birth of the sagging movement.  enlarging the torso by lowering the waist.

but, they still wanted to show their legs off, plus, we brought back a lot of mamsy pamsy fashions from the crusades.  (basically, all of chivalry, court, etc, came back from the crusades)

now, we no longer care so much about strong knees or legs, because it's not so important.  but, strong balance is always important for musculine prowess.  So, a strong middle remains imposing.

so, sagging pants drops the waist, which elongates the torso.  and, no one cares about legs, so just sag the pants, keep them bagging to look more balanced.  boom.  you have the explanation for the style: to show a strong middled guy, with a low center of gravity, and lots of weight in the middle, hips, and legs.

I'm surprised that this trend has lasted as long as it has.  What's the usual longevity of a fad?

Yes please: If your gun is pulling your pants down below butt level, it's just going to keep pulling them all the way down. I think the look is more of a bluff that there's something pulling your pants down, like a gun. If you really want to carry a gun in your waistband you have to keep your pants tight and pulled up.


That's assuming it's a gun thing at all -- I always thought it was just a way to flash your underwear at other people, kind of as the male counterpart to the "whale tail".  This is based on nothing other than my own attempts at amateur psychology though.

No, but for some reason middle-aged white guys always say this as if they have their finger on the pulse of early twenty-something black culture, and that said people wearing saggy pants (young and black) are unbeknownst of this knowledge.


I thought it was called "jailin'," and originated from guys having their belts taken away in jail for security and safety reasons, which caused their pants to sag. It spread to the young, impressionable, non-jailed youth of the ghetto, and thence to the rest of us, because urban youth come up with all the original pop-culture shiat. See hip hop.

/One stupid-looking fashion, though, I have to say. Right there with Renaissance dandies having shoes so long that the toes curled up and were attached to their knee breeches by gold chains. Or those silly-ass boots that Mexicans wear to dress up, which are basically the same thing.

/Get off my lawn.

Blue jeans have been standard casual wear since the '60s, so at least 50 years.

Standard wear at most beaches.  That's those long sandy things that have waves and seagulls.
