Just STOP it. A message to young people!

At the shopping centre yesterday I was confronted by similar views to the one in the picture. I can not understand the youth of today who seem to think it is ok to walk around with their trousers half way down their legs. STOP IT. STOP IT. STOP IT. ( I hope you noticed how I refrained from using vulgar language to describe these morons). You look absolutely ridiculous. You do not look smart and the rest of the population DO NOT think you look smart either. No one wants to see your backside hanging out of your trousers. It is not fashionable to look like a moron. Please have a bit of pride in your appearance. A bit of self respect. Dress properly like you should do and have a bit of respect not only for yourself but for your fellow human beings. I bet your parents are really proud of you for walking around showing off your great big butt. I thought the following photo summed up perfectly the shame you should be feeling and I hope it shames people into wearing their clothes as they should be worn.

I do not know where the younger generation is moving? Howe they can forgot the mannerism in dressing up. Not only boys but girls too must take care of their dress code.

I thought that particular fashion fad had passed by now. They do look ridiculous, and I can't believe it isn't uncomfortable. It just makes me think they look like a good target for a mugger because surely they couldn't run after the perpetrator with their trousers half down like that?

OH good grief no. It is very much alive and on display in London and the South. Probably more in @Gillygirls area than where I live. They were out in force yesterday in Bluewater.

Oh those silly boys. This has been the fashion for so many years now. When I was at the college I did speak to a couple of young lads about what lowered trousers can indicate in certain situations. When I explained it they were shocked.

The word clearly has not spread Gill. This is more than just a passing fad it seems to be quite pernanent these days. It is quite prominent in London and South London. Shame they come down to Bluewater I would prefer they stayed where they came from!

I have come across many such situations in public places. Fashion has somewhere lost its decency.

Fads come and go. Wait until this has disappeared and don't work yourself up. I'm sure that when you were young, the older generation found also reasons to complain. Read the following text and guess when it was written. "“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.” - - - - - - - - - - - Socrates, Greek philosopher, (c. 470 BC]— 399 BC) Who'd a thunk it?

Sacrates was certainly a wise man. I am not worked up about it sadly this is what London is like these days. IT has been an on going 'Fad' for many years but it looks ridiculous! Well I guess platform shoes were frowned upon back in the day! I am suprised many more of us did not end up with broken legs!

@MALUSE Haha My daughters English master wrote to me to ask me to ensure my daughter dressed appropriately for school. I replied and told him when my daughter leaves home in the morning she is respectfully dressed for school her skirt an inch below her knees. You being a father yourself know your children leave the house appropriately dressed. Once she has arrived at school she is your responsibility. If she, like the other girls, roll the skirts up then you deal with her. How many detentions you give I will fully endorse and you have my permission to keep her there for as many days it takes for her to see the errors of her ways! He told me that he had a big laugh to my reply and fully appreciated my endorsement,. She had 3 detentions I think then saw sense! School uniform is obligatory here in many schools.

@garymarsh6 Something like this hasn't happened to me but I know about the fact that girls leave home properly dressed and once they arrive at school, they run to the toilets and undress - at least partly. So, when the topic comes up in teacher/parent conversations, one side doesn't know what the other side is talking about.

Well, only effective thing that can be done to teach them a hard lesson is if someone else pulls them down fully . He will never ever think about wearing pants in such a manner in a public place.
