  • ha! but i don’t get their website… only one picture?

    • I don’t get the website either. And the cynical side of me thinks the artist chose this hot-button topic for greater publicity. — the PoPville equivalent would be a series of photographs titled “I am an entitled bicyclist/dog owner/parent/driver/pedestrian because…”

  • The saggy pants thing is getting out of control. It didn’t bother me so much, until last Thursday, when I was exiting the Gallery Place metro and I saw a kid wearing a thong with his pants way below his butt cheeks. I guess he didn’t get the memo that you’re supposed to wear boxers for this book.

  • I am wondering what would happen if I gave one of the many fine young asses in DC a wedgie?!

  • “…because I am incapable of holding down the most menial of jobs.” Is this supposed to be edgy? Is this one of those exhibits curated by the upper middle class white folks that run this place to prove how culturally aware they are? Actually, sorry, the exhibit doesn’t bother me, the acceptance of stupidity does.

    • Yes. Besides, the saggy pants trend is (finally) on its way out thanks to the emergence of skinny jeans. He’s a little late to the game.

        Wrong! I see skinny jeans “sagging” all the time. Looks ridiculous b/c skinny jeans are tight so would not slip. I always want to pull the skinny jeans guys with them down below their butts that they are doing it wrong.

    • Yes, because no one can actually dress differently at different times. You probably wear a suit to a backyard bbq, just to be work appropriate at all times. You may not like this style but to assume that someone who sags their pants can’t be employed is stupid.

      Also, I am assuming it just like kids and their rock n roll music or those wacky blue jeans.

    • upper middle class people that run the place?

      where’d you get that?

    • I dont think upper middle class white people hang out on Georgia Ave…

  • Here’s a discussion point: adopting this style puts you out of the running for any job you apply for, will get you targeted by police, and will get you labelled a thug by most people. But your friends will think you’re cool.

    • Oops…
      By the way, has any girl ever said the phrase, “I kind of like him, but he just doesn’t wear his pants low enough…so I’m going to pass.”

      • “So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair – ew – and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.”

  • Eh, I’m not sure who the artist is or what the intent, but I find this kind of provocative. These kids are talked at and talked about ad naseum but are rarely given a voice, real or imagined. More power to him (the artist).

      Are the quotes actually from the kids themselves? I thought the one “I sag…because I’m a follower” is really strange for a young person to say; it would be like saying, “I’m a sheep and can’t make decisions for myself.”

  • I sag . . . because my bra is the wrong size.

  • Apparently this “trend” originated as a prison, um, signal. I wonder if any of these boyz are aware of that.

    About time someone addressed the pants issue. Now if we can get them to turn down that danged rap music which gives them the brain damage, with their hippin and the hoppin and the bippin and the boppin…. So they don’t know what the jazz is all about!

  • Of all the issues we have in our communities…. we focus on how a particular group of youngsters wear their pants.

  • Meh, I sag just a bit, like and 1/2 or an inch below my waist. Not enough to show my boxers but I don’t like when pants are right on waist. Feels uncomfortable. I never understood the sagging below your ass. Looks gay to me.
