Haha, those academics are so stupid. Smart people wouldn't waste their time researching semi-obscure concepts like "conspicuous consumption."

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon
about to eat your face.

I love this since I know so many academics like this. Eventually, only being able to afford paperback harlequin romances will be seen as "hipster" and "counterculture".

Ah, that makes sense. Even in prison under these claims it would still just be a fashion statement of sorts. Marking yourself as a particular type of person. Not like has a functional role to play in the event itself though. Thanks for clearing that up.

The more plausible prison based origin is that inmates were not allowed to have to belts* and so their poorly fitting prison uniform pants often did not stay up. This seems somewhat more plausible to me then the hand-me-down theory since someone wearing their older brothers oversized pants could use a belt as little brothers have since the invention of pants. But it could have been both and some other origins besides. As Gavin said, pinning something like that down is next to impossible.

*Shoelaces were also banned in some cases and laceless shoes came into style about the same time sagging pants did, although that didn't become nearly as ubiquitous.

When you wear pants five sizes too large for you, all the belts in the world won't make that look like it fits. They would still very much be the "Baggy pants" look, just with a belt so your undergarments aren't visible.

Though if you personally can fill out the ass of a pair of pants with such a size discrepancy then my hat's off to you. That has to be worth some kind of respect right there.

Well if you mean sagging as in the waistband of the pants being far below the waist then yes, the belt would fix that. If you mean the inseam coming down a foot and a half past the crotch, which gives it what the older demographics seem to insist is the "Crapped your pants" look, well that would still stick around with the addition of the belt. You really need to fill out that ass in order to bring that inseam back up to it's proper height. With a size discrepancy like that no mere buttocks would do, you'd need a full blown booty.

Certainly the belt is always an improvement though.
