Saggy Pants, originally a private boarding school style inspired by economist Adam Smith to raise underwear sales, has invoked the anger of many inner city parents as the trend has spawned imitators from Newark to Los Angeles.
57% of those who took the survey felt that anyone wearing their pants so low should be smacked. 29% of respondents felt that the style should be restricted to the 3 particular boarding schools where it originated: Brooks, Taft and Salisbury. In the area of graduate education, 38% felt that NYU Journalism School should raise its standards and not have the ability to wear your pants low be its only requirement for admission.
The survey was held on the Pests of New York Blog via Facebook and Twitter between October 14 and 29th. A full summary of all questions and their results is below.
