HORN LAKE, Tenn., May 20 (UPI) -- Officials in a Tennessee town said they are working on a new ordinance to ban locals from wearing their pants low enough to reveal underwear or bare backsides.

Horn Lake Mayor Nat Baker and members of the board of aldermen said they have seen recent increases in men wearing their pants in the saggy fashion, leading them to seek a ban in the form of an ordinance, The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal reported Thursday.

There isn't a city in Tennessee called "Horn Lake".... There is one in Mississippi just outside of Memphis.

Anyway, they ought to ban companies from making baggy clothes.

Horn Lake is in MS but is a suburb of Memphis.

I think they should call it the "No Pants on the Ground" law. I'm all for it. There is something truly appalling at having to look at some young man's underwear.

I can't put into words my distaste for people who act/dress like that but I don't think an ordinance against it is the answer. Let them continue to take our rights away from us, even things like this, and see where it gets us.
There is also a silver lining here in that when people dress like this it helps to give you an idea of who to keep your children away from. They basically wear a sign on themselves saying "I'm a loser". Just my opinion.

I can solve the town's problem and it won't take a new ordinance. Simply make baggy clothes for older people such as myself and no respectable young person will want to wear them anymore. Baggy pants are quite comfortable. Brand name suggestion is Grey Gang Jeans. I suggest a commercial with grandma and grandpa dancing around in them.

lol Laura! I agree... the only way to get rid of the trend is to make it undesirable to THEM. I love the Grey Gang idea! lol
