136/365+1: Saggin'


136/365+1: Saggin', originally uploaded by Yankee T.

Why? Nobody seems to be able to tell me why this is a choice people make. This young man had to hold onto the front of his pants-just before I snapped this picture, he was retrieving them from around his knees. He's wearing a BELT and he has to hold onto his pants. I give up.

I see this everyday too and wonder 'Why' myself. Seems very silly to me.

got no answers on this one. it was bad enough when the belt kept the pants mid-butt, so a few inches of groovy underwear could show, but i'm officially in old-fart-land on pants belted below the butt.

It can't be comfortable, loosing or almost loosing your pants all the time.

I guess I'm officially old, cause I don't get it either.

Anastasia said...

the belt is quite puzzling.

chances are good he doesn't know why, either.

like my kids older brother right down to the belt! when I have asked about it he just sort of looks down with a little smile that says volumes about how completely out of it I am - and he wears shorts over his underwear so that when his pants fall down and they do all the time, he isn't actually exposing himself.
I have been tempted to show up to our dinner dates wearing something similar to see how that goes over, but my kids won't let me leave the house like that.
Great picture!

Too funny! I don't get it, either.

A few years back, I worked the midnight shift at a gas station convenience store - the only place open 24 hours in a small town, so when the bars closed, most people headed over. I remember standing behind the counter, with this guy looking at a display a few feet away,his back to me. He had no shirt on, and his jeans were slowly dropping. He had no underwear! Thankfully, he pulled them up before I got to see *too* much of his hind end.

If you figure out how to get my kid to stop doing the same with his basketball shorts, I'll buy you dinner.

At least basketball shorts have elastic.

And he does it because everyone else does it.

KathyR-It would be worth it to me to figure out that solution, just to meet you for dinner!

My biggest boy does this too, although not quite so far down. When i holler at him to "pull your pants up" as he's leaving the house, he pulls them down farther. Darn teenager!

Karin said...

It's pretty ridiculous. I think the "why" is because it drives adults crazy. Isn't that why teenagers do anything they do? ;)

I think there are many of us wondering why they wear their pants like that. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

haha....it was as fun reading the comments as sensing your frustration on this one...aren't we all "rebels without a cause" in some form or the other while growing up?? :)
