The True Origin of the Fashion of the Shaggy Pants

Once again I received in my mail an illustration that erroneously explains the origin of the fashion of fallen pants, the” shaggy-pants  that spread among the black community in the 90s, hence generalized to the rest of youth and, again, between the rest of the world.

The True Origin of the Fashion of the Shaggy Pants

The wrong hypothesis is that pants were a way for homosexual inmates in US prisons to “announce” their availability. According to this theory, the exposed strip of underwear by the intern would be indicative of how far he would be willing to go.

The meme that circulates through the mail and social networks has a real ingredient-the prison origin of the mode – and a fictitious one-the topical association of the presidio with the sexual practices. The real reason that prison inmates in the United States began wearing their slacks was because of a ban on wearing belts, a potential weapon against other inmates or for self-harm.

African Americans-it’s worth remembering that 1 in 11 black males are on parole or parole-made virtue of this uncomfortable circumstance and also began to wear their pants half-assed as they left the penitentiary, a way to reaffirm their status of hard types ( “I’ve been inside, nigger” ). Thus, what had to be a stigma-to have gone through the network-became a sign of identity and the kids who wanted to emulate the gangstas, began to also wear the trousers at half-mast, whether or not belonged to the underworld.

In that decade, the hip-hop culture sprung up in the black suburbs spread all over the country and came to the white kids, who automatically adopted the archetypical outfit of any self-respecting rapper-down-trousers, hooded sweatshirt and other paraphernalia-and talk, rhyme and move like the blacks, the country’s outcasts but the most influential minority in popular culture.

And from there, to the rest of the world: the Indonesian teenager rode his skate down the road, exhibited his Calvin Klein, probably ignored that his current pints were born of the ban on wearing the belt in American prisons.
