Here's something I don't understand:  sagging.

Isn't the idea, generally, behind "being dressed" that one has clothes covering one's underthings?  And if one has to, say, grasp at one's trousers when running, else find said trousers at one's ankles, isn't that, kinda like, not really convenient?

And then there's sagging, part two: when a gal sits and exposes fancy strappy underthings (aka whale tail) this is not desirable.  Trust me here, I've been on the observing and being observed side of this one.  It's just many kinds of not good.  --So, do we have (yet another) gender inequity?  --or, is sagging kinda' like the anti-plumber butt, therefore not the same thing at all?

I dunno.  Just throwing a random musing/cultural observation/sign of the times piece out there...

It just seems to me that sometimes -- no, most of the time -- people just have no clue how utterly preposterous they look. Well, at least those who aren't doing it intentionally (which is the same as saying, "those under the age of about 25").

Fashion standards are not what they once were.

I am always amazed from pictures taken during the depression of people in bread lines waiting for food and a good portion of the men are in suits and ties.

Fortunately, we have Julie Bennett and Stowe to improve our fashion standards downtown in the near future. Its going to be the most anticipated fashion event downtown this year and will hopefully address many of your fashion concerns you raise.

I can't wait to see the ad campaign.

folks can certainly wear what they want, but nasty undies showing is just Unartful.....mostly. So, I'm with you. I'm proud of my bra straps tho....I try to match them with my whole outfit of the day......just so ya know.

It's hard to have a completely tailored and fashionable wardrobe in these economic times but jeez...some people could do a little better. When Madonna started wearing her underwear on the outside she was buff and perky. While this look worked on her it definately loses its appeal when the wearer is middle-aged and morbidly obese

Ok so this is my first reply to a blog.... :)

The whale tail is gross... what's even worse is the full on butt crack. BUT... I do have to say that it's very hard to keep these 'low rider' jeans in place. I have a pair that are horribble and I'm always pulling them up... and yes I can hear my mom now... "Wear a belt"...
