Definition

In the 80s, the trend with the trouser cut was "baggy". Normal waist, verrrrry loooose fit near the thighs and tapering off to the feet. Perhaps it allowed for free movement of all essential bearings for porkis doing breakdance. It was so hot, so hot that all Josephites over Std 7 stitched their school uniform trousers to effectively make them baggy pants. The Cottonians in Bengaluru never caught up and when they eventually did, Josephites had already moved to berms

Usage

Oscar: Sir, uniform pants for stitching sir.
Tailor: OK.. regular style, right?
Oscar: What sir, you being a tailor.. asking like that questions..
Stich baggy pants sir. It's the fashion.
