I think the sagging pants style is remarkable and may be unprecedented in the history of fashion because it combines not just a static piece of clothing, the pants, but also the drama that goes along with the possibility of the pants falling. And then there's the concomitant activity of hitching and slipping and hitching and slipping. For those of us who find young men sexy the style is compelling. It seems like a lot of work to wear your pants this way but for the viewer it is dynamic, entertaining and just really fun. Name me another clothing style that involves so much theater.

  1. The point of wearing sagging pants is that it's an invitation to admire & perhaps (if one gets lucky!) to fuck, & if the wearer isn't going commando, e.g., as here, the point is missed entirely!
