Hindus would be upset about the cow. Jainists are pretty strict about killing anything.
Set up a table offering FREE HAM. The Muslims would turn away at once. Many Jews ... would have to think about it for a second or two ... cn
where do they GET those pants. Can't race in them well at all. Counterracist? cn
some claim it started in prisons as a sign to other inmates that you are "receptive" to getting mounted. (no homo, prison gay isnt really gay...)
more likely in my opinion is that the phenomenon is a devolution of the zoot suit movement among hispanic youths as a form of rebellion against wartime sumptuary laws restricting the use of cloth. hte flashy oversized and actually quite awesome zoot suit became less elaborate, less formal, and eventually became a habit of wearing riddiculously oversized clothing to advertise your membership in street gangs. (still no homo)
when the clothing beccame so outlandishy oversized, but also, un-tailored, keeping your pants up became a chore. thus the institution of darts, paeats and belts to maintain trouser positioning. this had a tendency to chaffe on the midsection (any fat guy who loses weight can tell you, too big trousers bite when you belt em) thus belting below the waist became a trend. like all trends it gradually morphed into stupidity,, and now a dude's boxers are outerwear, and pants are designed to only clothe the thighs and below. (still no homo)
the addition of the oversized bleached and starched t-shirt adds another layer of foppery to an already dandyish and effete style. the resulting "look" is that of a shapeless pile of laundry with a head poking out the top. (now sorta homo)
once they stared using glitter, embroidery and the bedazzler shit got really really foppish, and the formerly stylish and flashy plumage of the zoot suited pachuco is now "ghetto fabulous" (definitely homo)
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. ~Carl Sagan
over the years i have witnessed the fall and occaional resurgence of the zoot suit, and the parallels are striking to the current "more cloth than homey" fashions.
also prison does not explain the appliques, glitter, sparkles, rhinestones, and airbrushed artwork on "ghetto fabulous" menswear. i think its just a trend towards foppishness and dandyism
