Col. Dan Showalter (USMC retired) explained the following to me about two years ago in Afghanistan:

  • Women wear pants
  • Gays wear slacks
  • Men wear trousers
Dan is best friends with Lee Ermy (the renowned Gunny) and the force of his personality if even stronger than Lee's, if you can believe it, so taking Dan's direction to heart, I felt compelled to share the following observation and pronouncement.

Trousers should fit comfortably, in a manner that makes them effective for their intended purpose without trying to make any sort of political or social commentary.

My understanding is that the current style of loose-fitting, over sized droopy drawers are an emulation of prisoners in holding cells after an arrest who are forced to surrender their belts. Unbelievable that, in our great Nation, we actually have a cultural impetus based on this nonsense.

My conviction is that wearing your trousers around your knees instead of your waist is also a convenient way of hiding a big fat ass.

Therefore my official pronouncement on this fine Saturday morning as I prepare to muster my household to do some aggressive lawn work:

Men's trousers and women's pants should fit correctly according to a conventional definition, meaning that they should be cinched around the waist using some form of belt, and they should use the minimum amount of material to achieve this.

If you want to look like a prisoner, you are clearly a stupid fat ass and your opinion is worthless.

Thank you all for your willingness to allow me to step on my soap box briefly; I am now content to leave this issue to lie.

Not to mention that it makes it really hard to run after you've committed whatever crime you're about to commit if you wear your pants like that.

That being said, if I was forced at gunpoint to choose loose baggy saggy pants or "skinny" jeans, I am going baggy everytime.

What are "skinny" jeans?


Will they make my ass look smaller when I wear chaps?

Probably, now if you wanna be stylin, grab you some skinny jeans, and a emo shirt, the on top of that get you some baggy sweat pants, preferably roko wear or southpole, and sang them, and a big baggu sweatshirt to match, and dont forget the timberlands laced but not tied. And ball cap, flat bill 5950... worn sideways. Then you can be cool anywhere you go....

At my age and current shape, getting jeans to fit comfortably without falling off what's left of the rear is becoming such a challenge that I have seriously considered Bubba type bib overalls.Now that is something that for me totally sucks ditch water.

Ain't nothin' like a good, loose, broke-in (almost wore out) pair of Liberty overalls. In fact, I just wore out a pair and now I gotta get a new pair. I just hate breakin'em in. The only thing I can think of that might be more comfortable, is a Scottish kilt.:)

Anybody wear suspenders? I still wear a belt, but with no ass

and wanting to carry IWB, there's almost no alternative, IMHO.

I like these "trucker" suspenders, and they're not in the way of my IWB
