I'm at the point where it doesn't bother me now when I see it. I'm just concerned about the effects after wearing your pants like that for a long period of time. Recently at a high school classroom (where my brother teaches) a doctor came in with some astounding news. Wearing your pants saggy for a long period of time will result in pelvic pain, groin pains and injuries, hip pain and other problems. His proof was that he had already had several young men come in with problems associated with the saggy wear, etc etc. Actually this isn't just a black thing, I've seen whites, asians, hispanics with the saggy look also. Some say it's a trend, fashion statement or it's just what everyone else is doing.
ones pants around the hips so that they sag down and bunch up around the ankles. Originally, this was a prison thing that signified that you were another prisoner's property, ie bitch. Punks were forced to wear their pants this way so it would be easier for their masters to pull their pants down and butt-fuck them. Somehow this became a 1990's fashion trend. I learned this from watching a TV special on prison life. The inmate who related the story was an elderly black gentleman who had been sentenced to life in prison and had been there for over fifty years. He marveled how such a mark of shame became a fashion statement. He said that younger inmates don't believe him when he tells them but swears it's the truth. I believed him. I also think they should let him out already, he's like 80 and I don't think he represents a threat to society.
Look at any wanna-be gangster (wankster) How the hell are you supposed to run from cops with your pants around your hips and your shoes unlaced anyway. If any of these little punk-asses actually did anything bad enough to get them thrown in the slammer they would no doubt shortly find out exactly what saggy pants are good for.
wearing ones pants below the waist to make pants baggier. This is seen as a "cool" way to wear pants, as seen by the number of rappers, skaters, rock stars, etc. that wear them. Usually a belt is not worn to reinforce sagging.
I was walking down the street, and my pants were sagging, so i had to pull them up every 3 seconds.
