    Ok, this is not meant to be offensive at all. Just a curiousity bit so don't take it so incredibly serious. First off, most guys are going through the "sagging" stage. Meaning they wear their pants below the waist, low enough to see their what color underwear they've picked out. Ok, This style started a long time ago in jail. Yes, jail. When they didn't have belts to hold their pants up for fear they would strangle themselves or someone else. So they had to wear their pants low. So,
    why do you want to look like a jailer?
    why do you wear your pants that way?
    I see guys struggle with walking up stairs and the way they run with their pants that way just looks absolutely hilarious. Now I am curious as to why you guys do this? :P
    I mean a legitamate arguement not silly little things that don't make a difference on if your pants were where they are supposed to be.

    that isn't even remotely a good reason. You don't have to be like everyone else and wear them that way just to look like a mental person who can't figure out how to wear pants

    I just wear mine so the elastic border of my boxers show, not half my ass. Saying that, male camel toe doesn't look too good either...

    I heard it started in some sort of gang culture. Guys would be handed down their older brother's clothes, and so the baggier they were, the bigger their older brother was ("don't mess with me, I'll get my brother to kill you" etc).

    It's how fashion develops. For example the origin of why we have buttons on the end of jacket sleeve comes from Napoleon Bonaparte introducing them there to prevent his soldiers wiping their noses on their sleeves.

    I'm sure many people, you included, have jackets with buttons on their sleeves but I am just as sure you don't feel the need to regularly wipe your nose on your sleeve. Origins are quickly forgotten, and probably for the best in some cases!

    I don;t wear mine that low. But if I bend over my boxers show.

    Mainly I wear them there because it's more comfortable, plus a lot of jean styles lend themselves to this kind of wearing. Also, it helps me make jeans last longer, I hate growing out of my favourite pair of jeans...

    Not true. In fact in recent years the trend has been towards tighter fitting jeans (which are still worn low down but offer no protection) which allow more flexibility.

    OP, because they are comfy that way.
