False. The baggy pants thing was because inmates were not allowed belts, as they could be used as weapons.

Not sure if it`s true but I`m quite happy to spread the rumour.

I had thought it was because jails gave larger waist sized pants to inmates, so if they wanted to fight they`d have to fight with one hand because the other was needed to hold up their pants. Not saying that`s true either but it makes more sense than this.

Regardless of the truth to the story, the truth to the style is it makes it hard for the kind of people that hire other people to take the wearer seriously.

What exactly do the A B C represent? The progression seems to be out of order. Is it :

A : I don`t want a c 0ck in my @ss
B : I would LOVE a c 0CK in my @ss
C : OH FU<K I DON`T EVER WANT A C 0CK IN MY @SS EVER AGAIN!

Unlike most urban myths, however, this one can become a reality. You sag, you send a signal.

It`s an urban myth created by those who want to make boys with saggies feel embarrassed.

not at all true.

it started because prisons hand out "one size fits all" type pants that often do not fit well and prisoners ended up with baggy pants.

this is clearly a stupid joke but then again so it sagging your pants.

I think it has more to do with jails taking away belts if the prisoners were violent, and then their pants fell down.

@ drworm2002 - the ghetto hoodlums took it into the prisons where it spread to rappers. {All rappers have been to prison, right?}

However the sagging-pants style began, it`s still the hallmark of a truly stupid person.

I`ve heard multiple variations on this, and what I think is that it probably started in multiple places for multiple reasons and slowly merged into the trifecta of stupid it is now.

I`d heard that it started when punks came out of prison less fat then when they entered, and their street clothes no longer fit as well. `Jailing`, and the proof- the ill fitting clothes- were a sign of the much desired `street cred`.

I was told by a police officer that it started when boys from less fortunate families had to wear their older brothers pants.

I`m tired of hearing this. I actually had another woman tell me about this a few days ago in a very matter-of-fact way, like she was sharing some scandalous secret knowledge with me.

Snopes has a page on it. While it did start in prison, the origins of the "style" is that prison issued clothing is often not the right size, which leads to sagging pants.

False.
It started with ghetto hoodlums wearing large baggy clothes to hide their weapons. Hip Hop artists picked up on the fad to increase their street cred and the damn stupid fashion snowballed from there.
