She Said to Me “Pull Down Your Pants.”

As I was leaving the house yesterday, Nancy said “pull down your pants.”

Yep, I had them hiked up all right. But I’m only trying to keep up with the Brits.

As teenagers, most kids wear their pants baggy and low on the hips. When that teen graduates college and journeys into the job world at about age 27, his pants find his natural waist and stay there for a good 12 years. Then, it starts to happen; pants creep is in effect. By 45 pants are 2 inches above where they should be. By the time a man hits 57, he’s wearing his pants just 7 inches below his arm pits!

My reason: I’m so gosh-awful skinny that I have to start with my pants seven inches below my armpits because after the first ten steps, my pants are on the ground.

She Said to Me “Pull Down Your Pants.” — 4 Comments

  1. I know an appliance repairman and an electrician, both in their 50s, and they should be wearing their pants 7 inches below their armpits. I’m tired of viewing butt-cracks when they bend over. Now if they were 30, it might be a different story…

    If you’re too cheap to buy skinnier pants, try some suspenders. They have much more pizzaz than belts.

  2. @Catch Her in the Wry (RIP Salinger): Yes I will have a wardrobe of pants from 44 to 34 when I am done. Ya see, the thing is, guys pants are only in even sizes (at least the off the rack ones are.) So if I’m a “tight 38, the next choice is a loose 40.”
    Suspenders, puh-leeze.

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
