Lynwood, Illinois - Be careful if you have saggy pants in the south Chicago suburb of Lynwood.
Village leaders have passed an ordinance that would levy $25 fines against anyone showing three inches (7.62cm) or more of their underwear in public.
The mayor of Lynwood, Eugene Williams, says young men walk around town half-dressed, keeping major retailers and economic development away.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the ordinance targets young, black men.
Young adults in the village, like 21-year-old Joe Klomes, say the new law infringes on their personal style. He said leaders should instead spend money on making the area look nicer.
I have a solution for these guys: wear bikini briefs under your boxers. Then you can say that it’s not really underwear that is showing!
Isn’t it true that the saggy pants look has its origins in prison, where it is a sign that the sagger is “open for business?”
Horse hockey! Gang banger (saggy pants) are not only worn by all colors, but are the styles of teenagers in most countries now.

Yep...white teens also.... I HATE THE LOOK...
I remember the weird stuff I wore when I was a teen...and how my parents thought it was the end of the world when my brother wore his hair like Elvis....
That's what they're doing, you idiot! The area would look nicer without your underwear and everyone else's too hanging out for all to see.
What happens if they aren’t wearing underwear?
Signs of gang affiliations
Also, one pant leg with a cuff and so on.
Cops up here love it, the SOBs can’t run worth a poop and are ealily caught
They’re doing this in Flint, Mich., too. The ACLU threatened the Flint Sheriff’s dept. last week that they would sue, and the sheriff just said “Oh yeah? Go ahead and try it.”
Oh, they wear underware, but their underware sags, too. They wear their pants under their asses and their underware sags so you see their butt cracks, a lot of their butt cracks. But they cover it up with their long white t-shirts. Then they constantly pull their shirts up over their asses. This is in school. It’s pathetic.
Blacks don’t know enough to pull their pants up?
The sagging pants look like a toddler with a huge load of accident.
Then I guess the fine doesn’t apply to them as News24 stated this:
“Village leaders have passed an ordinance that would levy $25 fines against anyone showing three inches (7.62cm) or more of their underwear in public.”
Personally, I’d rather see underwear than crack. But I’d rather just see pants and neither of those.
On that note, last week I found myself at somesort of goth fetish club in London. There was one plump dude wearing leather pants and shirt stretched to an inch of their lives. I wonder what the designers were thinking, “Should we make these in size 44... Short?”
You may be able to suspend disbelief enough to let him pass in that get up. But the tighty-whities sticking up past the low cut leather pants plus ass crack hanging out would have you begging for good old fashioned American gangsta saggy pants in no time.
There were also a lot of what I thought were pirates, but someone corrected me saying they were vampires. Oops. They all looked like Captain Jack Sparrow.
