New Jersey Town Could Ban Baggy Pants
No shirt, no shoes, no problem?
That may not be the case in the beachfront town of Wildwood, New Jersey, where a new city ordinance barring baggy pants and shirtlessness on the boardwalk will see a June 12th vote.
After a series of complaints against exposed behinds, the set of proposed regulations states that citizens wear their waistbands "no lower than 3 inches below the waist to prevent the exposure of skin or underwear."
And, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino wouldn't be too happy about this one: shirtlessness wouldn't be allowed either -- especially not at night. According to the proposed regulations, "a shirt which covers the breast and/or pectoral area must be worn after 8 p.m. and until 5 a.m."
While the pants ban may seem outrageous, this is apparently not the first time saggy pants have surfaced in a court of law. According to the Press of Atlantic City, a law banning baggy pants took effect this past week in Terrebone Parish, Louisiana.
"I think it's obnoxious with these kids who wear their pants down around their knees," the town's Commissioner, Pete Byron, told the paper.
