Fashions are often Funny – Later in Life


low ridersTHUNDER BAY – Every generation does things that either agravate or humour older generations. Many of today’s youth offer a fashion statement that I would suggest is kind of funny.

Ever see young teens wearing their loose fitting jeans. Today the “low rise jeans” are the big fashion with young teens. Boys are wearing their jeans so low that usually their boxer shorts or underwear is showing.

Many of these teens are wearing their belt so tightly around their upper thigh that it must hurt by the end of the day. The other part that is funny at least to me is seeing how these teens embracing this fashion are forced to walk almost like a penquin.

As winter approaches Canada and Thunder Bay is set to head into our winter’s wonder and cold, I wonder how many of these fashionable teen boys are chilling themselves and ensuring a long bout of winter colds?

I know that the tight jeans that were the rage when I was a teen likely had parents wondering what the idea behind the style was. Today watching those in their “gangstra look” which apparently evolved out of American prisons I wonder how many of these teenagers will, like other generations keep the basic fashion of their youth as they grow older.

Chances are the “droopy drawers” look won’t look all that cool if they keep it up until middle age or older.

That of course is just my opinion, as always, your mileage may vary.
