Baggy Pants: Trendy or Tacky?

Bet you could name about a dozen fashion trends you've seen over the years.  For a while at my middle school, students would clip suspenders to their pants and wear them hanging down – it was like they were carrying around a seat harness.  In high school, I had a pair of light green, pleated jeans that I wore about twice a week (no idea what I was thinking – they didn't match anything).  And I remember seeing some dude walk in with a pair of full-leg, suede, horseback-riding chaps:  After all, nothing says 'Wild West' like homeroom!

But the baggy pants look has been around for years; it was going strong when I was in high school.  What do you think of it?  Do you ever let your jeans slouch?  And what do you think of the Atlanta school board decision to ban pants that are sagging?
