Droopy Ass Jeans – Then and Now

Ogling A Few Last Pages From The Dusty Box


Caption: In 1980 the boy with the baggy jeans was my boyfriend and I took this photo for my photography class which is why it is on the cardboard backing.  He was on the wrestling team and was dropping weight to get into a lower weight class for a tournament.  In those days, droopy jeans were never seen worn like this and why this was an edgy pic.


Damn, I’m loving my dusty old box this week.  I will put it away in a day or so cause it will be time to move on.

But there are still many pages blank in the Summer of 1988 Literature composition book that I have already started writing in again.  It is exciting, indeed, what these words and memories have inspired..

  3. I recently found a diary that I wrote in from 6th grade to my early 20’s. It’s neat to look back and really take to heart who we are, where we’ve been, and really appreciating our journey.

  4. Wow. Gross. Wasn’t that uncomfortable? Did the man not wear any underwear? How did he feel about you using that for a class? At least his face isn’t showing. Well, not the one on top anyway.

    Thank you for following my blog. I hope that you noticed my novel excerpts; it takes place in 1980, based on my memories of the time. When I saw the photo that you posted here, I was sure that it was more recent. I can confirm that droopy-assed jeans was NOT the style then!

    I wish I still had my old notebooks/diaries. I’m glad that you are reading and being inspired by yours.

    In Australia, we commonly call it a “plumber’s crack” 🙂
