    I`ve seen this pic before, but I doubt that`s what it meant. The way I heard it was that jails purposefully gave inmates pants that were too large, so that if they got into a fight, they`d have to use one hand to hold up their pants. Not sure if that`s true, but it makes a little more sense. I mean, who ISN`T available for sex in prison?

    Wasn`t because inmates weren`t allowed to have belts and the issued cloths only had a few size choices so they had to deal with what you were given? Thus too big of pants on smaller bodies creating the sagging. I call urban legend regardless.

    Nice thought, but not true. They originated because of poorly fitted pants and belts not being allowed for fear of their use as weapons or methods of suicide. It was adopted as sort of a badge of honor among thugs outside of prison who`d been there, and became a trend on the streets.

    Did you know that`s bullpoo? It started with a rash of suicides and hangings in prisons. Belts were banned as a result. Once people got out, they felt weird wearing clothes that fit well. It soon became known that these people were not to be drated with. People then picked up the trend to make it seem as if they had done time.

    This explanation is better than the truth. Usually people who wear their pants down to their knees don`t have the intelligence to look it up so they`re prone to believing whatever we tell them. lol

    Regardless of the origin. Those idiots look like lazy friggin bums. Watch the welfare lines get longer, these clowns won`t be getting any respectable jobs in the future, my guess is that most of these loosers don`t want to work in the first place. The future looks really bright with these 2 as poster children.

    Well back in the late 80`s, early 90`s, we used to sag while skateboarding because it was more comfortable.

    That`s all.

    I had always heard that it started because it made them look shorter. If you sagged your pants while committing a crime, the description of the person was several inches shorter than you, excluding you from the list of "usual suspects."

    No, this is a lie. Saggy pants originated in prison because the clothes there aren`t made specifically for each inmate`s size needs, and they aren`t allowed to have belts because of the suicide risk.

    What happened in jail became popular in mainstream culture because the gangster rap scene takes its cues from jail-culture.

    Sagging has nothing to do with sex and everything to do with mental retardation and the desire to be "cool". If seriously stupid makes you cool, that is.

    This is actually entirely untrue. They would hand out `one size fits all` pants, so obviously many of them were saggy as poo. But i`m ok with everybody believing this is what it means because people who wear their pants like that should probably be raped.

    Baggy pants originated in jail due to pants not fitting right. This trend of wearing your pants down low did not start in prison, this myth has debunked a thousand times. Stop posting this crap.

    I always thought of it as a public service announcement that says "I`m an as s" So people can know from a distance without wasting ten seconds of their lives talking to them to find out. I for one appreciate the little nuances that telegraph a thuggish mentality.

    saggy pants are the best thing that ever happened for out of shape cops, your sag ass is much easier to catch in a foot chase
