This beautiful rainy Burgh morning, I stopped to buy an umbrella. As I was leaving the drug store I noticed a young guy, probably in his early twenties, hop off a PAT bus with his jeans clearly hanging about three inches below the bottom of his ass. His shirt was hiked up so I was getting a real nice helping of boxer shorts. I rolled my eyes at the absolute ridiculousness of the look and then headed to get a coffee before going to the office.
I found myself walking behind a different guy wearing his pants in the exact same way.
I know this is not breaking news and people have been talking about this style of jeans-wearing for years, but it’s really getting bad now.
It used to be waist, boxer band, top of ass, jeans. Now it is waist, boxer band, top of ass, middle of ass, bottom of ass, bottom of boxers, jeans, resulting in a whole slew of young, otherwise handsome men awkwardly shuffling down the streets in a manner that makes them look like they are literally, at this very moment, trying to keep some shit from falling out of their asses … and failing.
