A friend and I were doing a girls JV game a few days ago. We were talking before the game about getting some new stuff and he said he had heard of new beltless pants with a drawstring inside. I thought he was kidding, but he said he was serious. Anyone seen these or know what he's talking about? This is the first time I've heard of them.

I thought parachute pants went out in the 80's?

Hey, I'm not making this stuff up -- and this guy is a really good official. In fact he and his crew did a state championship football game two years ago.

I know they have "referee" shorts with an interior drawstring. Haven't heard about any pants.

I've NEVER been accused of being in.

I've also never actually been in parachute pants, either. But I've seen an actual parachute.

I haven't heard of them. Then again, I would think the chances of someone coming out with them now would be a bad marketing choice since the season is almost over. Either way, I think I'll stick with the Honig's pants. So far, so good!

Ever see the show "What Not to Wear?" Drawstring pants are a no-no.
