Wildwood to consider ban on baggy pants

WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) - May 29, 2013

The proposed regulations are in an ordinance scheduled for a vote on June 12.

The baggy pants measure requires the waist band of pants, shorts, swimsuits, and skirts to be no lower than 3 inches below the waist to prevent the exposure of skin or underwear.

Shirts would be required between 8 p.m. and until 5 a.m..

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. tells The Press of Atlantic City he's tired of complaints about people who "walk around with their butts hanging out."

Troiano says the ordinance is designed to maintain the boardwalk's friendly-family appeal.
