sagging pants

What are your thoughts on the low riding saggy pants? You know, when they wear the waist band below their butt. My stepson (14) wears his jeans like that and it's driving me crazy. It's gross. I REALLY don't want to look at his underwear. I'm thinking about insisting he pull them up while he's at home. He says he has them pulled up at school. Does it bother anyone else or is it just me? I'm trying to pick my battles but it's grossing me out. I've even seen where cities have fined people for dressing like that.

  • We refused to allow it in our home. My sons were told if they were 'sagging' expect to be pants. they didn't believe my husband. He came up behind my oldest and yanked his pants to his ankles at the mall. The problem ceased to exist.

  • My son sags, We have a rule that I don't want to see his underwear (more than the band of boxers) So his shirt had better cover it. It's a compromise, I still have to remind him 50 times a day. I'll just play swat any exposed undie area in public and he pulls them up. Drives my husband totally nuts. Me? I figure he'll grow out of it. Sagging skinny pants=very silly trend.
