    It might be because I'm not a teenager anymore, but I barely see anyone wearing baggy jeans worn on their thighs, or huge T shirts these days. In the past (3 or 4 years ago?), every other kid could be seen dressing that way. Now, everyone's wearing fitted stuff, which by the way looks a lot better/classier, IMO.

    And now when I see someone wearing baggy clothes, I think they look sloppy.

    Discuss.

    It's always looked ugly to me even back in the 90s. I think a lot of young men did the sagging style just to identify themselves as (or at least to feel like) part of the sub-culture. This was a style popularized by hip hop musicians and miscreants. Clean kids from the burbs doing this looked so dumb...poseur situation.

    You are correct about the fitted style. It was considered metro maybe back in 2000. But now fitted style for men is pretty much mainstream.

    Depends on if you truly mean fitted, and not tight.

    Tight is still considered metro.

    I hope tight never becomes mainstream. I would hate to walk down the street and every dude's nipples and crotch are about to burst out of their spandex shirts and pants. :noes:

    I live in Atlanta. Don't know what people who don't live in Atlanta usually think the city is like...but it's got a big divide right at downtown. Pretty much if you are north of downtown it's all metro or WASPy. The whole northern part of Atlanta centered around Buckhead is glitzy. Penthouse high-rise condos and mansions. Wouldn't see much sagging there.

    Tight shirts are actually kind of a wishy washy topic, sometimes ok, sometimes not. Mainly just tight pants that are metro.


    ...and I mean shirts that are simply tight fitting, I don't mean wearing a shirt that's a size too small.

    underground hiphop style that i noticed when i started college 6 years ago doesn't consist of baggy clothes.. that's something i associate with mainstream rap style which i still see when i'm in LA :dunno:

    luckily i don't see it as often in köln

    they need to make it illegal to wear size 20 mens jeans too.. almost as annoying seeing dudes in pants that are too small for most women as it is in baggy pants. wear some normal fitting pants guys :(

    Like kanye, pharrell, lupe, etc. They're not really underground, but that's more what I see here in nyc nowadays. Skinny jeans, usually sagged I guess...dunno...just a different look.
