These pants are a logical progression. It has been cool to wear pants around knees instead of waist. These pants look as if you are wearing them around knees while making sure they can never fall off and show off your tiny package.

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.
Dunno about the baggy/saggy pants history, but i do know that back in the 90s when we were all wearing our pants 5 sizes too big, i would *HAVE* to roll up one side of my pants whenever i rode a bike, otherwise it would get caught up in the chain or just get dirty from the oil etc.

So yeah fairly certain the one-leg-up part came from that.

Guess my joke didn't work.

Now, RKelly was the one robbing the cradle, banging a 14 year old on camera. Hence the 'little sister' thing. Far as I know, Kanye is all legal on that front. Looks pretty pissed he got all up in Kardashian's junk though. How unhappy is he here:

I can do normal jeans, straight or boot cut, I don't really wear "baggy" casual pants anymore (but back in the day I owned like, several pair of JNCOs), but I definitely have to wear baggy snow pants.
I hated you JNCO wearing muthafuckas.

I missed most of the trends growing up. Part of the bonus about not being able to afford anything (although I didn't think so at the time).

Bob's Surplus clothes: $20-25 Levis regular jeans and $15-20 dockers Dockers khakis. A couple of those per school year, some hanes white undershirts, and I was sweet.
