For the most part, I consider myself to be quite forward thinking, creative and generally, down with the kids. So with trends such as the baggy pant, sitting just below the butt, undies sticking out…I say go ahead. I think it looks ok.
At work today, upon seeing a student sporting aforementioned look, my female colleague posed a very pertinent question; "How do they stay up?"
And I thought, "…huh."
That really is a very good question and I don't know why I haven't considered it before. Because if I tried to re-create this look (and maybe I have…?), once the jeans are below the butt…they just slide right off! There's nothing for them to rest on. Everything else gets narrower. Unless you're wearing a belt, but then either a) it's so tight that it squashes all your fat into ugly muffin tops and/or b) it's so tight that you can't move your legs anymore.
So literally, how?
Enter male colleague. Who demonstrated again, that's it is possible, but couldn't provide a logical reason whyyyy.
At this point of closer observation it occurred to me, "Maybe it works cos it's higher at the front?"
And then we hit the jackpot. Guys, this may not be news to you, but for me, this was a major revelation to my innocent mind.
Reply: "No. Well, maybe…guys have a little extra for it to rest on."
Thiiiiink abouuuuuuut iiiiiit…..?
Who would have thought. Baggy pants - only functional for guys.
