There is No Place For “Sagging” in Wildwood, New Jersey
There is a little town in New Jersey called Wildwood and they are about to set a trend in America’s fashion. Wildwood’s City Council is set to pass a law prohibiting “sagging” or baggie pants from being worn in the city’s limits.
It is a fad that according to an article in the Quincy Herald Whig originated in our prison system and has been popularized by hip-hop artists and embraced by youths. It is also a fad that many residents don’t want to see and that is apparently the case in Wildwood.
I for one have never understood it anyway. Why would I want to walk around holding my pants up as I walk or be showing my underwear above my pants? I know it is a fad and fads eventually go away but it is a fad that most people would like to see go away now. So hats off to Wildwood and lets see if this catches on in other cities.
