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.

Sagging pants originated from oversized pants.

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 refuse to believe this. I really don`t think it`s true. I think it`s just a result of people not giving a poo what society thinks.

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.

We`ve had this "fact" on here before. I don`t recall what the true origin was, but it`s not this.

My middle school principal told us this during a discussion about the dress code. I didn`t believe it then, and I certainly don`t believe it now.

Do skaters sag? Doesn`t seem like that would help them skate.

We`ve had this debate here before. I know it`s not true, but I like to spread the lie anyway.

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.

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

(Skaters did it first)

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.

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."

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

That`s all.

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.

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

If somebody had told me that one day guys would find it cool to have their pants hanging down I just wouldn`t have believed them.

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.

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.

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.

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?
