Ron Price, a Dallas school board member, has asked the City Council to look at strenghtening a law to go after people who wear baggy pants and expose their underwear.

I think it's disrespectful, it's dishonorable and it's disgusting," said Price, who made the recommendation last week to the City Council. "I have no problem with the top of your Hanes label being shown. My problem is when grown men walk about the city with pants below their buttocks."

Council members have asked the city attorney to look into the issue. City Attorney Tom Perkins said this week he's investigating the legalities and will report back to the council.

But experts say that such a law might not hold up, so to speak.

It would be too vague, said Robert Jarvis, constitutional law professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He said that for a criminal law to be constitutional, a person of average intelligence must know what's being prohibited.

"Who's to say how baggy pants can be before they're 'baggy pants,'" he said. "There's just no way to regulate these things."

It's also disturbing, discombobulating, disgruntling, disgraceful, districting, and worst of all, dispooptaculating. Perhaps old people should be more concerned about their driving than about the latest fashion trends.

Exactly what goes through my head Pagan.
I am all for the flavor of the month fashion, but when it makes it awkward to walk, NO, awkward to even stand still, and forces you to go bow-legged. Count me out...

fogies :hi5:
