Flood Pants High Water Madness

Okay stop the train, flood pants?  They ain’t cool.  In fact, awful. Okay, sorry, I’m being too tough on you.

It reminds me of those nasty butt-showing-my-favorite-underwear low hanging pants that want-to-be gang bangers wear.  Call me old man.  I don’t care.  They look horrible, both.

When I was growing up, one of the most embarrassing thing a person could say about your pants was, “nice floods,” referring to person’s pants when that person started to outgrow their pants, just shy of reaching below that person’s ankles.  We call these pants, floods.

Pants that fall around the ankle refers to the fact that you can wear them when there is a flood, or “high waters.” Even to a partially fashion savvy person, high water pants easily make you look like you’re a fashion dunce, super unflattering.

Let’s just say, pants that shrink 1/2 inch or more in length with washing ought to be donated to less fortunate folks.  You are looking less fortunate.  Get a new pair that fit, please.  They are annoying.  I know you are going to say, you don’t know anything about fashion.

You know what.  You are going to laugh at those pictures later in life.
