Saggy Pants Suspenders

Saggy Pants Suspenders

If you look like a fool with your pants on the ground, just imagine how you’ll feel with a Subs garter-suspenders hybrid around your waist.

According to the New York Daily News, the $30 accessory is the brainchild of Harlem-based inventor Andrew Lewis, who felt that the world of men’s fashion needed a device to keep low-slung trousers in check.

Sold online at hatchventures.com, the beltlike contraption clips onto the pants and boasts expandable straps that determine how low the wearer wants to go.

“Sagging is a huge issue in my community,” Lewis told the paper. “I spent a lot of time observing, and I noticed that even for saggers, there is a point [at] which even they’re not comfortable with how their jeans were falling.”

They’re not the only ones. Since the low-rider trend has hit the streets, we’ve had more than our fair share of exposed threadbare Calvins (or worse).

The low-slung style has also been the nemesis of politicians who have fought to ban sagging.

So we're all for raising those waistlines. But isn’t that what belts, suspenders, and accurate pant sizes are for?
