It’s a free country right? You can disagree with the Government if you like, and you won’t (in theory at least) get throw in jail. However, whatever you do, make sure you’ve got your pants pulled up first in some cities. At least one judge has seen sense over that, and ruled it unconstitutional after a 17 year old was arrested in Riviera Beach, Florida, for exposing 4 inches of boxer shorts, due to wearing loose fitting jeans, and spent the night in jail.
Now, I was raised at a time when, as a kid, I had to wear a collar and tie if we went to visit relatives, especially on a Sunday. I can clearly remember my father complaining when someone came into our local community club on a Sunday wearing jeans. However, having to dress up when going out with family members or having a club dress code is completely different to telling a citizen going about their business how they can and can’t dress.
Personally, I think the saggy jeans look untidy, slovenly, and well, crap. I also think that baseball caps worn backwards look stupid too. However, it should be everyone’s right to dress however they darn well please, as long as they are not exposing themselves.
What’s next? No sunglasses after dark? No shirts carrying logos of foreign companies? Where does it end?
