Thursday Challenge—"style"

Here's a "style" of dress that's apparently still popular
(I caught all of these guys with my phone in the subway).
Clockwise from top left: This guy got it sort of right by wearing
plaid boxers; this one absolutely did not; I guess black underwear
is acceptable (??); this young man at least has a pair of pants
on underneath the ones he chose to leave at half mast.
Seriously? (I still don't understand it and probably never will,
but I guess these photos are evidence of my fascination.)

[To see more stylin' photos, visit
the Thursday Photo Challenge.]


  1. Reminds me of a sketch on Saturday Night Live years ago where Dan Aykroyd played a refrigerator repairman who did a lot of "bending over" while he did the repairs.

  2. It's truly strange and weird! If only we knew someone who could give the straight answer to this fashion quirk! I even saw some fellows like this in Venice, and I believe they were not tourists.

  3. I've read last month that "a central Alabama judge ordered a man to serve three days in jail for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants."

  4. I must say that I don't understand this style :) It looks silly like they don't have time to pull up pants !

  5. Very nice all these men.
    *wink, big smile*

  6. Makes me laugh as they look silly beyond imagination! Glad that you have been our roving reporter on the subway!


  7. «Louis» doesn't understand this either. He just hopes it will go away. SOON!

  8. you want another model? I have one at home.

  9. It was a constant battle when I worked in the assistant principals office in middle school to get the boys to pull up their pants. I see nothing appealling to the eye. I like my man in well fitted jeans and boots.
    I have to crack up laughing when you see the boys walking almost bow legged to keep their pants from falling down further. Please explain how that can be comfortable.
