Dress Code fashists: South Carolina to ban saggy pants

 Dress Code fashists: South Carolina to ban saggy pants

Earlier this summer, Wildwood, N.J., banned sagging pants on its Boardwalk in an attempt to attract more visitors, Bloomberg reported. Pants that sit three inches below the hips can result in a $ 200 fine or 40 hours community service.

Sure it has nothing to do with race, because when people can’t emulate prisoners, only prisoners will be able to look like prisoners. And cops like to claim that such pants allow the wearer to carry concealed weapons.

Ironically, this PSA is threatening time in prison for sagging pants.

At least kids in SC would learn what an ileum is, so there’s that educational benefit of such nuisance lawmaking. Better pants reform than gun reform.

South Carolina lawmakers are hoping to pass a bill to ban saggy pants throughout the state.

House Bill 4957 would make it illegal for a person to expose their skin or underwear by wearing their pants “three inches below the crest of his ileum” —the top of the hips.

Violation fines equal just enough to buy that much needed belt: $ 25 for a first offense; $ 50 or three hours of community service for a second offense; and $ 75 or six hours of community service for a third or subsequent offense.

Looking ridiculous (though inevitable) is not the only risk of sagging pants, it is linked to erectile dysfunction, hip problems, and lower back issues. “These issues stem from consistently wearing pants well below the buttocks, so low that one must change the way he walks.” But hey, I’m sure the ladies you’re attracting with your sweet look won’t mind, right?


At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Japanese snowboarder Kazuhiro Kokubo was barred from participating in the opening ceremonies due to dressing sloppily, including a loosened tie, shirt hanging out, and sagging pants.[25]

In the fall of 2010 at Westside Middle School in Memphis, Tennessee, the policy on handling sagging pants is for students to pull them up or get “Urkeled”, a reference to the character Steve Urkel of the 1990s television show Family Matters. In this practice, teachers would pull their pants up and attach them there using zip ties. Students would also have their photo taken and posted on a board in the hallway, for all of their classmates to see. In an interview with WMC-TV, Principal Bobby White stated that the general idea is to fight pop culture with pop culture.[26] One teacher at the school claimed to have “Urkeled” up to 80 students per week, although after five weeks students got the message, and the number dropped to 18.[27]

A state law went into effect in Florida for the 2011–2012 school year banning the practice of sagging while at school. Pupils found in violation receive a verbal warning for the first offense, followed by parental notification by the principal for the second offense, which will require the parent to bring a change of clothing to school. Students would then face in-school suspension for subsequent violations.[30]
