    I saw this again in the city and I just about got whiplash.
    College age females who wear really really low slung pants and thong underwear really high....maybe 5 inches or so above the pants. At first I thought it was an accident but after today, I dont think so

    I ve heard during the Derby it gets crazy....
    Cool, except it's the ones you don't want to see that generally like to show off.
    These were not the case.

    It's just like cargo pants.
    When Cher started wearing them and in SATIN, they were officially dead.

    Why are people still wearing them?

    The thing with low slung pants, a guy at work has been wearing his for the last 2 days, plus today even his boxers were falling below the equator.

    Kids...just say no to crack!

    Don't really see it at my college, I like low slung pants on the females but I think the thong look is kinda trashy. Just a real big cry for attention.

    A lot of high school girls wear them too, here in Calgary. I feel like a criminal just glancing at them!

    I wasn't asking if they were still a trend, I was asking why they are a trend.

    As for why it is a trend...I suspect it is something they picked up on from watching music videos and shows like Muchmusic's Electric Circus that shows a bunch of "people from the street" dancing in a club for an hour or two broadcast live.

    It may have originated in other countries, perhaps Brazil, and "jumped the border".

    similar to the cher comment,
    FFMB (foam front mesh back) hats were officially dead when roddick wore that ghastly reebok creation at the open. Those NFL ones are perhaps the ugliest ones i've seen to date.

    Speaking of thongs that show above their lower garments...... I went to a college football game recently and two young ladies were sitting in front of me wh had on low slung garments with those thongs 2 inches up! Hell, we could barely watch the game.......

    While something like this is kinda nice to look at, it does look kinda trashy too....

    Yeah Grant, sooooo last week.


    Thankfully the "no-show socks" trend is dying. This looks horrible! Guys wearing sneakers with socks that can't be seen. It looks so damn feminine and they make guys legs look like bird legs.

    Whenever I see mesh hats now, I'm almost tempted to punch them in the face for looking like an idiot. It's the dumbest thing that I have seen in my 4 years of college. And I've seen a lot of dumb fashion statements.

    I always wear no-show socks if I'm in shorts & sneakers. I figure if I have 12+ hours of tribal tattoo on my leg, then I'm going to show-off as much of it as I can![​IMG]
