This is a picture from the day before yesterday. Have you ever noticed that a lot of kids have their trousers hanging low and still pull them up all the time? It’s almost like girls wearing mini skirts who always push them down. If you want to wear that style, I guess you just have to own it. And if your trousers fall while walking up some stairs, well, tough luck, eh? This guy was literally holding his trousers up while going up the stairs and I thought “Man, how about using a belt for that?” Silly kids …

Still raining here. Rain rain and more rain. I’m getting tired of it by now. Normally I don’t mind rain that much, but every day? I want a real summer please!

On another note, if you haven’t done so already, please also vote on my poll to help me decide which pictures to print. Vote below or read more about it here (you can also see bigger versions of the pictures there).

  1. I have to admit I hate that look…use a belt dudes or else someone may come over and pull your pants down to your ankles and kick you in the butt and make you run. That’ll teach ya! LOL
    On a lighter note…send some rain over here…we haven’t had any in three weeks!!! Lightning and thunder but no rain.

  3. Great shot, Verena. It sounds kind of labour-intensive as a look, but fashion always exacts its toll. It’s been raining here non-stop too – we’re promised sunshine at the weekend – perhaps you too?

  4. You hat the nail on the head there! Boys walk around tugging their pants up while girls are tugging their dresses and skirts down. It is a shame that both sexes seem bent on showing their underwear.

  8. Yes, it’s a daft look. And I wonder how many guys know the look originated in prisons as a way to advertise their availability!
