When I was in school, the cool guys wore their pants low, and the really cool guys wore their pants lower. But nobody wore their pants as low as a lot of guys do today. I?m wondering what brought on the change. I notice there are two subcultures where you see this a lot ? the hip-hop culture, and the skateboarders. I don?t see exactly what the connection is between them ? maybe there?s none, and the phenomenon is coincidental. Or maybe there?s a reason. Anyhow, here are some questions:
1. For guys who wear their pants really REALLY low: Why do you do it? What does it mean to you? How do you think it affects other guys? How do you think it affects girls?
For guys who don?t: What are your thoughts about those who do?
For girls: What do you think about it? Do you like it – or not?
For anyone: Can you refer us to articles, studies or research on wearing pants low?
In a few days I?ll post some thoughts of my own, but I?d rather wait until I hear from others. Meanwhile, I?ll just sign myself (without prejudice) –
