I remember when I first noticed this phenomenon. It was the summer of 2008. My brother had just picked me up from BWI airport and I was hungry so we stopped by the McDonald’s on Riverdale Road. When I walked in I noticed a group of wayward looking youths hanging out inside the McDonald’s. I noticed that they all were dressed alike. At first I thought they were all
fun boys gay because they had on really tight jeans. I pointed this out to my brother and he said that it was something the youths in the area were doing. All I could do was shake my head and go about my business.
This phenomenon has caught fire and it has now been deemed acceptable for males to rock jeans that are as tight as a woman would wear. Not only are their jeans tight but they sag their jeans. In my opinion this just looks really stupid and uncomfortable. Growing up guys always sagged their jeans (not me because Ma Dukes wasn’t having it) but this is just unacceptable. This trend has been headlined by the
talentless rap group The New Boyz. Even grown men are doing it. It just boggles the mind. I’m sorry but my nuts need room to breathe without my jeans restricting them against leg.
Please if you are a grown Black man please let this fad go. Its not very becoming. Lets leave it to our Caucasian counterparts. Lets show the younger generation that its ok to wear clothes that actually fit. If not for anything else listen to Steve’s take on skinny jeans:
