New Jersey claims low trousers are deterring tourists

The Mayor of a town in New Jersey has claimed that people wearing low-slung trousers are putting off tourists. Ernest Troiano, mayor of Wildwood, has said he is preparing to ban the fashion trend, in a bid to make the area look smarter.

If the new laws are brought in civilians would have to adhere to strict guidelines relating to how trousers should be worn. The new laws, being brought in my Mayor Troiano, would make it illegal to don trousers more the three inches below the hip. Exposing bare skin below the hip or showing underwear would also be banned under the new law, in an attempt to placate visitors on holiday in the US town.
Low-slung Trousers

Earlier in the year a similar law was passed in the US town Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The law bans people from wearing low hanging trousers, claiming it is a health and safety risk. Now it seems Wildwood is heading down the same road with the mayor being quite outspoken about the matter.

“When you have good families who call you up and say, ‘I’ve been coming here 20 years, 30 years, 40 years and I’m not going to any longer because I’m not going to subject my children or my parents or grandparents to seeing some kid walk down the boardwalk with their butt hanging out,’ you have to do something,” said Troiano.

“I’m not one of the Fruit of the Loom underwear inspectors; I’m not one of the grapes. I don’t want to see it.”

However, the ban may not be as easy to pass as it has been in other states, with the rules likely to come unstuck in the courts. Ruthann Robson, a law professor in New York has claimed that the ban itself may be deemed as unlawful.
