Prison Wear

For about the past twenty years the urban dress style for men and boys has featured the super baggy pants that don’t fit. I have always felt that initially this style was an ode to the ex-con populations of some urban neighborhoods. The pants and the over all style really aren’t that different than what is worn in some jails and prisons. On the other hand cargo pants do have an obvious utility; they can carry your stuff, whatever that may be. This afternoon while riding home on the el, the guy in front of me was wearing a coat from the Property of the State clothing co. Their line can be found here, among other places. The company seems pretty clear about what is behind their clothing line.
