On sagging

Illustration by Miles Huffman

I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in men’s fashion – shirts are being pulled down, not pants being pulled up.

What did the shirt do to deserve the sharp tugging towards the ground? Why not give the pants a hand up instead?

I’ve never pretended to understand the trend in sagging pants. Unless it’s showing off for prospective mates.

The only time I’ve let my pants sag was going out to the club to look for Mr. Right Now. My Mr. Right shouldn’t care what my undies look like.

It makes me curious as to why young straight men would do the sagging pants thing. Sure, it is considered fashionable but there seems to be a dichotomous relationship between sagging and showing off those picturesque curves.

Be proud of your buttocks gentlemen. If you want to show off your fine posteriors start a trend and go with yoga pants.
