OH THANK F***ING GOD. There is a person out there who dislikes this idiotic "style" as much as I do . It's just stupid. "Hey I'm going to wear my pockets around my knees and have to hold on to my jeans so they don't fall off, just so everyone can see how badass I am"
It originated from the prison system. It often denoted inmates that would "get down" with having gay sex with other inmates. It was reinterpreted as a badge of honor via the urban counter culture because of so many former inmates wore their pants as so.
I don't like it and think it means, "Hey look at my ass, you can have it if you want it..." LOL
Pure laziness. I swear I would never date a guy who didn't know how to wear a belt when needed. It's sad that our society has come to the point where we can't even wear a little piece of leather around our waists. Actually, now that I think about it some people do wear a belt. They just don't put it tight-which defeats the whole point of the darn thing. lol I personally think it looks gross. I don't want to see people's undergarments. You are right, it is very silly looking. And let me tell you not all people who wear their pants low wear boxers. lol I know that by seeing some nasty things.
One time I went in to prepay for gas and this young kid, maybe 16, was in there and another guy comes up to me and said look at that (pointing to the young kid's pants). He said "what do you think of that?" I said I think it is very disrespectful. The guy smacked the kid in the head and told him to pull his pants up. I was shocked! But the young kid ended up to be the guy's son. lol I love that story and I am really glad that guy did not allow him to do that while he was in public. Good Question! :)
It looks so bizarre. I mean If they are on your hips, that's fine, but I see all these guys walking around with them like totally falling down, pretty much to their knees and stuff. Why do they want their boxers hanging out? It looks beyond dumb.
