Seamy Side : Phrases


The unsavory or worst part


Since moving to skid row, Harold saw a lot of the seamy side of life for the poor people... at least it would seam sew!


This expression originally referred to the inside part of a sewed garment - if the garment was turned inside out (so that the wrong side was showing), the stitched seams were clearly visible.
