    I used to wear pants way too big, but now, I'm still a little baggy, but not as much. I do see a lot of older brothas wearing size 38's-42's and they're probably around a 32 or so. I think that's a little much. You can slim the pants down without being tight. I think brothas is just scared because they think anything that isn't baggy are butt-huggers. I stay around a 34, even though I'm thinner than that. It's not too baggy, but it's not tight.

    Hey Therious

    Hey Brother what's up where you been? How's business? I've been putting the word out about your business so I haven't forgot about you. I think older guys can wear baggy pants just not sagging pants. All I wear is baggy jeans and sweats. I'm not into name brands though, I more into comfort and price. If 37 is old enough for baggy jean then my opinion counts. Hey I was in Chicago a few weeks back and my 69yr old uncle was rockin' some baggy pants. Stay up Bruh.


    Peace

    In a recent documentary I watched on cable about men in prison I found out what sagging pants represented in the prison culture. Apparently, when prisoners wore sagging pants it meant that they were spoken for...as in another prisoner's "girlfriend".

    thug look from hip hop Rappers that weaved to the streets and in bruthas mind
    this the style, Maybe this why i never like my pants hanggin off my behind or
    all baggie to me it's sloppy dressing i like lose fit pants but not twice my size .
