In Paris? That just makes me sad. Those dudes should know better.
Thank you! When will this "fad" be OVER!
I am totally in agreement. I just don't get it when I see these guys walking around, having to hang on to their jeans with one hand just to keep their jeans at the optimal level between showing off their underpants and keeping their jeans from totally falling down.
Thank you, just thank you.
Absolutely !! shuffling along with those baggy pants dragging along, I always wait to see if one trips and falls or just drops the damned things.. pathetic looking fashion fad that never should have happened.I'm not opinionated or anything, am I ? :)
Ditto for gals, either get more pants or less ass.
Apparently this fad started in the prison system as a means to convey that someone was "open for business" as it were—if the teenage male population only knew! Mon Dieu!
Are you kidding Kiki?A prison fad meaning "I'm open for business." If only the arrogant, super macho teens on my bus knew. Oh, I'll be giggling quietly to myself the next time I see them.Thanks Amy for the post. Seems that many us want to see this fashion fad go away.
have to admit that everytime I see this I can't help but think of a baby in a nappy (diaper!) that needs changing - its just the way that they walk with bowed legs! Makes me laugh!
It's so strange, isn't it?? It's obviously been around forever, and I've never been a fan. But it seems like it used to be *so* over the top—the baggiest of blue jeans, worn so low that they defied all logic and gravity—but now the jeans are 'normal' proportions, just worn really low to show off those underwear. And I guess I noticed all over again recently because I've just been seeing the dingiest underwear... it is so unappealing!
lol!I get irritated too sometimes about that!! Guys should wear jeans/pants that actually fit them!XD
They are fashion victims-totally helpless .
