Where did sagging pants originate?

Answer

Sagging pants are believed to have originated in prisons because of ill-fitting clothing for inmates. As of 2014, sagging pants are a popular fashion trend among teenagers and young adults.

In prisons, inmates are not allowed to have belts, because they could be used as weapons or instruments with which to commit suicide by hanging. As a result, some inmates' pants may sag because they do not fit well. The sagging-pants style was carried out to the rest of the world and popularized by the hip hop community. The style eventually became popular with teens and young men of all economic backgrounds.
