    Wearing baggy trousers could cost you $100/£65 and community service

    If you get caught wearing your trousers low in public in one town you face a fine and community service after a council voted to make the style choice an offence.

    The US state of Louisiana’s Terrebonne Parish has made it illegal to wear baggy trousers and will force those doing so to pay penalties in the future.

    Anyone caught for the first time will have to pay a $50 (£33) fine, do it again and it’s $100 (£65) and a third offence will cost you $100 plus 16 hours of community service.

    Any contraventions after that then you are at the mercy of a judge.

    A local NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) chief was in favour of the ban.

    ‘There is nothing positive about people wearing saggy pants,’ Jerome Boykin said.

    ‘This is not a black issue, this is not a white issue, this is a people issue… Young men who were in prison who wanted to have sex with other men would send a signal to another man with his pants below his waist.’

    But not everyone was a fan of the new rules, with one local resident fearing it could be a ‘slippery slope’ if government started to control ‘social differences’.

    This has been put in place in a lot of places. I don't have a problem if you want to wear your pants like that, as long as you're not exposing anything to anyone in public. I think its hilarious where the roots of that look come from, and it's a social look that people WANT to display.

    Baggy pants are not the worst, the most irritating one is sagging skinny jeans! There should be a man law against that $#@!

    It's even worse when they sag their pants and his underwear has holes or brown stains in them.

    Good. I hope Canada adopts this too. There is nothing rebellious or special about dropping your pants. And the fact that it references sex in prison is really embarrassing, but I guess people who do this are too "gangsta" to accept the truth. Well done on behalf of the NAACP.
