Low slung jeans with underwear showing

28 comments  Add a comment

My gripe is about people who walk around town with their jeans or trousers hanging down and their underwear exposed.  This low slung trousers thing called 'sagging' I am led to believe, and yes, I did have to go to Google and do a bit of research to see what this strange 'fashion' is all about.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why they do it.  Do they think their derriere is so attractive that the ladies want to stare at it and swoon with love at first sight?  We don't want to see it all hanging out thank you very much!

walking around town with their trousers down

This is mostly a problem in the UK: with youths (mainly adolescent young men) walking around town with their trousers down, without even bothering to show some decency in public.  I just have one message for these people: walking around with your pants exposed does not make you "cool", it doesn't make you "macho" and it certainly does not look at all attractive. At best it makes you look like a slob, but more likely, it makes you look like a complete fool!

A belt for jeans, if only youths of today would use one... Other people have no problem walking with their trousers up, so why do these people insist on having their boxers hanging out for the whole world to admire?  I expect that by 2020 these people will have their trousers at their ankles, and they'll still waddling around the town thinking they look "macho whilst shivering in the cold.  Do us all a favour guys and just pull your trousers up!  Perhaps you could maybe even invest in a belt as it would certainly solve the trousers at half mast problem.

By the way the ladies' out there who go around with a similar lack of dress sense are no better in my opinion.

Talk about crimes of fashion...

Completely agree. You know, you have to hand it to those fashion designers though; to be able to sell a young man jeans that show off his hidesously skinny legs whilst at the same time making him look like a toddler who has soiled himself and needs changing...pure genius.

If that's trendy then I thank my lucky stars I'm not.

Id offer those clowns some braces for their trousers, an afro wig and a unicyle and 3 balls to juggle and make them earn their keep instead of looking gormless.

I have been told this practice,low riding of trousers with young males, is the wearers way of advertising in secret their interest and curiosity in homosexuality, is this true?

I agree completely. I saw a couple of teenagers in the town centre wearing their jeans half way down their bottom and personally thought that it looked completely ridiculous. Fashion trends come and go but I really don't understand how they can think that's a good look. Kids today huh?

Isn't the whole point of these trousers to show off the waistband of the perpetrator's underwear? So we can all say "WOW! He must be really cool! He pays £20 a pair for his knickers!"

Some day, when they are a lot older, they will have to wear trousers like that, because their bottoms will be sagging and will fit the trousers perfectly.

haha. The fashion will come and go as fashions do. If they look cool to their peers then it's cool to them, and often at that age it's peer opinion that matters the most. I'll bet there are loads of people who can look back on what they wore a few decaeds ago and feel a twinge of embarrassment.
Ming Mang Moo I want to give them wedgies too....sooo tempting tee hee. To be fair though there are plenty of folk who never approved of the way I chose/sometimes still choose to look so I know I shouldn't give critism to this style.

I think they must do it to show they're so cool that they didn't even notice they're pants have began sliding down! As we know, it show nothing of the sort. My way to get them to vacate the area is to point out to others loudly, the strange brown stain that is now exposed!

The trouble is that when you have kids (young ones) you develop an automatic response to pull up their trousers and tuck in their shirts, it's almost a reflex reaction for parents.

mind you, droppy trousers arebetter than hoodies.

You posters should stop taking the mick out of the low slung trouser wearers.
Has is never occurred to you that they are still having to wear diapers because they keep messing their pants. True!, just stand by them and get a whiff....phew!

"At least if they are wearing low slung trousers the chances are the police will catch them if they commit a crime as they won't be able to run very fast."

Not if they are in hot pursuit to arrest him for indecent exposure.
