(AXcess News) New York - Stratford, Connecticut may not be on the fashion map of top designers, but if they were at the latest city council meeting they would have gotten an ear full after the City Council considered imposing fines on anyone caught wearing baggy pants in town.
Councilman Alvin O'Neal is proposing a $250 fine for people caught wearing baggy pants that fall down low enough to expose their underwear.
"Seniors are complaining," said O'Neal, who tonight will hear what the good citizens of Stratford think at an open Town Hall meeting on whether to ban baggy pants or not. But the Coucil says it's got a plan.
"The target of the new law is very specific - young people who wear trousers as low as possible without them falling down completely," says O'Neal.
A similar proposal is causing controversy in Atlanta, where a councilman wants an amendment to the city's indecency law that would ban people from wearing baggy pants that show boxer shorts or thongs.
"Sagging pants are an epidemic that is becoming a major concern around the country," said Atlanta Councilman C.T. Martin. But Martin may be in for a fight as civil liberties groups are considering opposing the City if it tries to ban baggy pants. Apparently, pants have rights, though Martin says they haven't a leg to stand on, citing similar indecency laws in Louisiana where you can be fined $500 if you're caught wearing baggy pants that reveal your under garments.---
