What do you think of guys sagging their pants and having their boxers show?

I call them opportunities. Just think of all the depantsing and wedgies you can give them.

Fun fact: it is actually a style created by a gang.

I have to wonder how many people are in prison today because their pants fell down around their ankles and they did a faceplant while trying to flee a fat cop.

On topic: If you want to impress me, that's not the way.

Not a fan. Pants go around your waist for a good reason.

We had a big pant sagging problem when I taught at a junior high. It always amazed me that young black males wanted to look like their grandfathers, as sagging dates back to the early '80s.

Actually, my understanding is sagging pants originated in prison as the inmates were not allowed to wear belts. So those out in society who wear this "style" are merely practicing for their future occupation.

My understanding was it originated from "The Crips". Guess they're just another culture that adopted the trend.

Absolutely ridiculous! I think it's f'ing hilarious to see the pants halfway down their asses and watching them not even walk, more like - shall I say it? - little baby steps.

Originated as a sign of willingness for male on male prison sex avoiding prison guards knowledge

The funny thing is that it's a trend gone international as I've seen many wearing their pants like that in my country too, for a couple of years now actually.

Now I find it stupid and silly as well but, the irony of we criticizing the clothing choices of others is something else lol. I say live and let live, maybe it will be one of those things when they look back and wonder what were they thinking.

I am not a fan of it.
I say keep your pants up when in public.
In your own home do what you want.

I heard that too, and also that guys in prison did it to "advertise" to other guys for "fun"
Then it carried out of prison too, and became a fashion(unfashion?) statement.
Not sure how much truth is into it.

I was curious about the above statements and went to one of my favorite sites, "Snopes", which dispels urban myths. LINK

Or summary:

Origins: Sagging, the fashion of wearing pants with their waistbands around the hips (or lower) rather than snugged to the Kriss Kross midriff, has been and continues to be a controversial style of dress. Although this sartorial fad is overwhelmingly favored by young males, it is not limited to them — young women have at times likewise indulged in the urge to sag.

The practice, which did begin in prisons, worked its way from the hoosegow into hip hop culture. It was adopted by a variety of rap artists, such as Ice-T and Too Short, which enhanced its perceived tough-guy cachet. Sagging can even be taken a step further by wearing the droopy breeches backwards. (Totally Krossed Out, the 1992 debut album of Kriss Kross, shows the pair of 13-year-old rappers doing this.) By 1995 the style had seeped into mainstream teen culture — one no longer needed to be a wannabe "gangsta" to sling 'em low.

Pants worn this way are kept up by constant hitching, an act that becomes an integral part of the walking style of the wearer.

While sagging did gain its start in the U.S. prison system, it was not a clothes-wearing style authored by imprisoned homosexuals intent upon advertising their interest in casual flings. Sagging pants became the behind-the-bars thing thanks to ill-fitting prison-issue garb: some of those incarcerated were provided with clothing a few sizes too large. That oversizing, coupled with the lack of belts in the big house, led to a great number of jailbirds whose pants were falling off their arses. (Belts are not permitted in most correctional facilities because all too often the lifeless bodies of their inmate owners have been found hanging from them.)

Sagging has another rumored origin (also false), one less well-traveled than the "gay inmates advertising for sex" postulation:
[Collected on the Internet, 2003]

What's the origin of Gang-banger pants? You know, worn really low and baggy? Before they became a fashion statement, and/or MADE that way by assorted clothing companies, I heard it originated in a prison: An inmate was on suicide watch and couldn't have his belt, which the other inmates were either outraged by or thought was ridiculous given the inmate in question. So they started wearing theirs really low in protest/solidarity. Anyway, that's what I heard.

Another discredited theory says ghetto hoodlums adopted the fashion of wearing their pants in the sagging style to better conceal weapons from rival gang members and police. While it is true a gun or knife can be effectively stashed out of sight in droopy pants, it can also be hidden in more form-fitting bottoms, especially when the pants-wearer tops his cache with an untucked sports jersey, pullover, or sweatshirt.

The most intriguing aspect of the "trolling for gay sex" rumor lies not in its veracity, but in its acceptance as gospel by those who encounter it and who are then moved to pass it along to others. While the combination of two facts (homosexuality in prison and falling-down pants worn by inmates) accounts for the origin of the belief that links the one to the other, its spread is attributable to the prevailing dislike of the fashion. Those who choose to wear their pants this way cite comfort as their motive and so find justification for this imitation of rap stars and felons, two groups perceived as toughly self-sufficient and therefore worthy of emulation; those who do not follow this fashion see only the crotches of jeans hanging at or above the knee, hobbling their wearers in a goofy manner. (One can walk in sagging pants. But one can't run in them.)

The rumor becomes a way of passing along one group's disdain for another's sartorial practice. Communicating that the saggers are unwittingly offering their backsides to all takers when they think they are mimicking admired rappers and identifying with tough guys no sensible person would mess with becomes a way of saying "The joke is really on them." This same sense of surreptitious delight over being in on a prank someone looked down upon is unknowingly playing on himself fuels another urban legend that involves medallions flaunted by society matrons or Chinese character-emblazoned sweaters proudly worn by their knitters and even some of the "misunderstood souvenir" tales told about globe-trotting tourists.

While sagging is embraced by a number of young people, it is far removed from being the subject of widespread approval outside that demographic. Various communities have attempted to ban this form of fashion statement. In February 2005, for example, the Virginia House of Delegates passed the so-called droopy drawers bill, legislation that would have imposed a $50 fine on people who wore their pants so that their underwear was visible in a "lewd or indecent manner." That bill was killed by a senate committee two days later. In May 2004, Louisiana lawmakers attempted to say no to plumber's crack by passing House Bill 1626, legislation that would have made it a crime to wear clothing in public that "intentionally exposes undergarments or intentionally exposes any portion of the pubic hair, cleft of the buttocks or genitals." That bill was also rejected by the state's senate.

(Me): So that answers a lot of my questions. Kind of interesting, actually. Still silly, imo.

Not a big fan but it doesn't bother me too much. Shamefully I've had situations where my trousers have been too big at the waist and i've been forever holding them up (if i go without a belt).

Isn't a little hypocritical for me to criticize how others might dress when I like to wear diapers? I mean what's the difference? I used to hate the sagging pants style, and still it's not for me, but shouldn't I (of all people) be willing to extend grace and patience to people that dress differently then what is considered mainstream? (or proper?) I'll never understand it, for various reasons, but that doesn't mean I need to be bothered by what someone is wearing out in the neighborhood.

The key words are: "Out in the neighborhood". I don't care if a guy sags in his home, inside or out, but when he goes out in public, I think it's in bad taste. Likewise, if you wear a diaper down the street, most will consider it in bad taste and might let you know about it. My nieces' husband sags around all of us. I don't particularly like it, but he's a nice guy and he is family and if it doesn't bother anyone else, then I guess it doesn't bother me.
