  • [0032]
    The term “saggy pants” as used herein means pants that are worn and intended to be worn loosely about the body and are otherwise loose-fitting. While pants may stretch or deform to sag about certain parts of the body after being worn, the term saggy is used to describe pants that are loose-fitting when first put on the wearer's body. The present invention provides an article of clothing comprising pants with a saggy pants control system to control the positioning of the wearer about the wearer's body. The saggy pants control system allows the wearer to control and/or adjust the location of the waistband about the body such as by pulling the pants up, pulling the pants down or holding the pants up by grasping one or more handles. In one embodiment, the one or more handles are discreet so that the wearer's control of the pants can be performed discreetly.
  • [0033]
    The pants include a waistband and at least one front pocket, the pants being configured to be worn by a wearer who can adjust the position of the waistband to a desired location such as below the waist and in proximity to the buttocks of a wearer. The saggy pants control system includes a handle affixed within a respective one pocket, the handle being configured for grasping by the wearer to also prevent said pants from falling down. The handle within the pocket can be used to pull up, pull down or hold up pants as desired or for a different look throughout the day. For example, a wearer may wish to pull the pants down for a casual saggy pants look (locating the waistband about the buttocks) using the handle within the pocket.
  • [0034]
    In one configuration, the saggy pants control system includes at least one concealed pocket handle. However, the saggy pants control system may include a concealed pocket handle in each front hip pocket.
  • [0035]
    In another configuration, the saggy pants control system includes at least one waistband handle mounted in front and in parallel and overlapping arrangement with the waistband. However, the saggy pants control system may include two waistband handles. The handle at the waistband can be used to pull up, pull down or hold up pants as desired or for a different look throughout the day. For example, a wearer may wish to pull the pants up such that the waistband is closer to the waist for work. In another configuration, the saggy pants control system includes multiple handles, at least one concealed within a pocket and at least one mounted to the waistband.
  • [0036]
    In operation, the saggy pants control system allows the wearer to pull pants up from a lowered position to an upper position using waistband handles or concealed pocket handles. For example, the saggy pants control system allows the wearer to pull the pants up from the ground to the waist and anywhere therebetween. The saggy pants control system allows the wearer to pull the pants down from the waist to the ground and anywhere therebetween. For example, the wearer may pull the pants down such that the waistband is lowered to position the waistband around the buttocks. The wearer may pull the pants down from around the buttocks to below the buttocks but above the knees. The wearer may pull the pants up to the waist.

    The pocket handles of FIGS. 1A, 2, 5A, 7 and 8 are used to hold up, pull up or pull down pants while doing so discreetly because hands grasping the pocket handles are hidden inside the pockets. The waistband handles of FIGS. 6A and 7 are placed on the outside of the pants, near the waistband of the pants between the pocket and zipper. The waistband handles can be used to hold up pants but in a manner that is open to observation and sight of other people.
  • [0099]
    The saggy pants control system provides a means to grab onto something contoured or configured to a wearer's clasped hands inside a concealed area (the pocket) to provide the means to hold up, pull up or pull down pants without looking too odd/strange (because hand(s) and handle(s) are concealed inside pocket(s)). Thus, the pants can be held up, pulled up, pulled down or prevented from sliding down.
  • [0100]
    The saggy pants control system provides a means to grab onto a handle on the outside at the waistband for quick access when the pants are sliding down. The waistband handles are especially useful in the absence of a belt.
  • [0101]
    The saggy pants control system provides multiple handles configured to be clasped discreetly and in the open in a wearer's palm, fist or hand to hold up, pull up or pull down the pants.
  • [0102]
    The objective of the invention is that the handles in the pockets allow individuals to wear baggy or saggy pants and manually hold up the pants from falling down while doing so in a discreet manner. The handles on the inside of the pockets provide a sturdy piece of material to grasp onto to keep pants at the desired level while standing or walking. From the outside, people cannot see that the wearer is actually holding his/her pants up because his/her hands and the handles or loops are concealed within the pocket.
  • [0103]
    The waistband handles are placed on the outside above the pockets and between the zipper or button for individuals who want a solid handle to grasp or clasp with a hand or fist but do not desire to be discreet.
  • [0104]
    The pocket handles, in an embodiment, cannot be seen unless looking down into an open pocket. The exact position of the attachment of the handles in the pockets may vary. Stitching may be visible from the outside of the pants, if the pocket handle is sewn directly to a pant leg. The inside pocket material may be denim rather than the soft white cotton material of most blue jean pants.
  • [0105]
    When wearing a jacket or sweat shirt with front/side pockets, the wearer can have his/her hands in the pockets of the upper garment and grab the waistband handle(s) on the waistband by making a fist inside the jacket pockets and around the handle(s) located on the waistband. Thus, the wearer can hold up the pants with a clinched fist in a jacket inner pocket material, clinched around a waistband handle on the pants.
  • [0106]
    The specific way the ends of the handles are sewn to the pants may depend on the thickness of the fabric and strength of the thread.
  • [0107]
    While the present invention has been described with respect to various features, aspects, and embodiments, those skilled and unskilled in the art will recognize the invention is not so limited. Other variations, modifications, and alternative embodiments may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention.
