Underwear trend may be bottoming out
Gawker's "Great Moments in Journalism" spotted this story today:
The underwear might be under there, but showing your bottom is behind the times.
That's what the experts – from local kids to fashion historians – are saying when they hear of the Dallas City Council's discussion about potentially banning saggy pants on the city's streets.
While wearing pants so loose that underwear is visible isn't a dead trend yet – go to any mall on a Friday night – fashionistas say obvious undies are on the outs.
"It's over and overrated," said 20-year-old fashion plate Christopher Collins, wearing designer sunglasses as he shopped at Valley View Center. "You won't find it that much anymore."

Brothers Kevin Deamus (left), 16, and Markus Deamus, 19, like to let their undershorts show. But Markus says that he tries to show respect for the elderly. “I pull them up when I’m around them,” he says.
Dallas school trustee Ron Price recommended the ban at a council meeting last week. He asked the city to pass an ordinance that would cite people who wore their pants too low, an idea that many City Council members said merits discussion. Several asked the city attorney to look into whether such a law would be enforceable.
