A New Trend Among Young Black Men

Is There A New Fashion Trend Brewing Among African-American Boys?

The "disturbing" Fashion Trend (in my opinion) of sagging pants among young Black Men may just be coming to an end.  There's seemingly a *New Fashion Trend* among young Black Men that's a welcome relief in my opinion!
