My Fashion Police

Yes, it's been awhile since the last blog. Just take it as another occasion where Peter got stuck into working another feature.

A Florida judge has deemed wearing pants low enough to see your underwear is legal after a man who got arrested and spent a night in jail because a police officer spotted him wearing the said "low hangers". The police officer apparently thought he was a suspicious being from his choice of clothing and you guess what? He has a history of marijuana use. Strange how some of these stereotypical things are actual stereotypes. (Yahoo)

To be fair, there are indecent exposure laws in most jurisdictions--it's just a question of how "exposure" is defined and enforced. Here in Tallahassee I have seen kids in the area with pants that sag so low you can see the bottom of their boxers--meaning that their actual butt cheeks are visible. Not something I want to see. So I'm all for a little collective pulling-up-of-the-pants if it means I don't have to see any undies, or butt cheek overlap, or quarter-slot. And speaking of quarter-slot, I'd like to see some of the low-rise crowd picked up as well as the saggy-jean crowd.
