Re: Do your SO's pants

Yup. It makes me laugh just thinking about his boxers showing. So, so not his style.

And my husband is DOD and prior Air Force, so he is pretty picky about his appearance. Hair cuts weekly, collared shirts pressed, etc. If he doesn't have a belt on, he can't stand it.

Re: Do your SO's pants

Yes, my husband has nerd style, he wears khaki pants and cotton button up shirts. He also works in construction and I think it would be pretty hard to do any kind of physical labor with your pants around your knees. He also wears briefs, not boxers so that wouldn't look as "cool" sticking out. lol

this is us.

DH and I have decided that if our son should ever decide to be rebellious and start sagging his pants, we will wait until we are in Wal Mart and then pull them down to his ankles. Yup, we're mean. And I do not care.

I don't want my kid walking around looking like a little thug. Besides that, we have clothes that FIT him, we own belts if his pants (for whatever reason) don't fit him, it's dangerous as he could trip, it's a trend that started in the prison system for inmates to let other men know they were "available", and I think it looks just plain RIDICULOUS.

I was feeling really beat up for my husband. I'm glad he's not alone. Bless his heart, he has negative butt, less than none. Concave. Sticks out no further than his thighs. Same problem yours has with belts. He does them so tight that they hurt him. He has so little that his pants and underwear don't simply slide off, they roll down. He doesn't like it, at all. It's not a fashion faux pas, it's terrible genetics. My daughter and younger son are built like him. My 3 year old son is shaped exactly like me. I wonder if strangers would even realize they're related. 3yo and I have a lot of junk in our trunks.

Re: Do your SO's pants

This thread is crackin me up.

My DH just turned 40 and I only see his undies if he takes his pants off.

I can kind of understand high school and college kids wanting to identify with gangstas and be all "bad@$$" (pun intended). The style is associated with rebellion and prison and those things are kind of cool to pretend to be a part of when you are trying hard to pretend to be grown up. Eventually, one would hope that these boys would turn into men and leave their posturing style behind in favor of a more comfortable, practical style. I see 25+ guys who do it the same way I see women of my generation sporting the big 80s hair and pouffy bangs. To me, the style says, "I don't wanna grow up."

ETA: It's one thing to not have a behind to hold up the pants well and do the best you can. It's another thing to purposely buy pants several sizes too large, cool to you boxer shorts, and a pair of briefs just so you can wear your pants around your knees and gangsta walk.

Re: Do your SO's pants

DH doesn't have much butt to speak of, even with a belt his pants slide down enough that the top of his waistband is showing - but that's always covered by his shirts so I allow it.

Saggy pants were always an immediate disqualifier for men back in my single days.
