So does this mean that Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer were ahead of their time in fashion? And here I always just thought they were being ridiculous for the sake of being ridiculous. I guess I really just don't understand fashion at all.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

You know they say that as you get older, you lose the ability to adapt to new styles and fashions. And that most people stop trying to keep up with fashion in your 30s.

What you see your folks wearing (and think looks uncool), is what was cool when they were in their 30s. Back even further, high waisted slacks and fedoras were popular and thats what the oldtimers wear now.

So this is my sticking point I guess. I refuse to follow trendy fashion if it includes this, and I am fairly certain that to these dropcrotch wearing teens, i look like an old fart whatever i think looks good.


Dammit, getting old.

At last a thread that makes some sense of relevancy.

Bieber. That's where the juice for this comes from. Dude pulls tail.

Kids forget he's a rich, famous, music star, pretty boy.....and hence can do whatever he wants.

They can't.

I don't know if this is true but I heard the baggy pants and sagging pants fashion came from prison.

Inmates not allowed to wear belts thus some pants sagging. I've also heard that having one pant leg up identified certain gang members since all the inmates are in uniform. When these people were released they kept the fashion as a statement showing they did their "time" and "proud of it".

As a result, those who know inmates started to mimick the same fashion to associate themselves with the person to identify with them. Eventually, the trend caught on and now it's turned into teens who just want to make a rebellious statement.

Again, not sure how much of this is truth. I agree this fashion is one of the most ridiculous things ever and I even thought so when I saw it in highschool during the 90's, however, we were all young once and I'm sure a lot of us did things that were ridiculous in our parent's eyes. Personally, I made potatoe cannons with steel pipes and gasoline. I "outgrew" potatoe cannons before deciding to venture into making ones using propane.

RKelly is a pimp and Kanye West is a pretender.

Haha, back in the earl 90s, in a conservative little Swiss valley, mother went nuts when I began to combine the neat skirts she bought me (and I always denied to wear) with long woolen socks and Docs boots and shaved half of my long hair
