A long t-shirt, reaching down to the wearer's knees.
This fashion trend originated many years ago in the poorer black neighborhoods, where families could not afford to buy new clothes, therefore younger kids wound up wearing clothes which no longer fit their older siblings and/or parents. Being several sizes too large, the shirts often reached the wearer's knees.
One of many current fashion trends derived from practices of lower-class memebers of society used several decades ago.
