Louisiana town bans baggy pants – Fashion Police salutes them

Baggy_pants_fashioncrime So, the Louisiana town of Delcambre has made it a crime to be seen wearing baggy pants. In fact, it’s not just baggy pants they’re targeting: it’s now illegal for anyone to be seen in public there "in dress not becoming to his or her sex, or any indecent exposure of his or her person or undergarments."

Now, baggy pants are covered under the "exposure of undergarments" clause, but really, that "unbecoming to his or her sex" is a catch-all for everything, isn’t it? Crocs, for instant, aren’t becoming to anyone. Neither are harem pants. Or pretty much anything Kirsten Dunst wears lately. Where will it end? Will the Louisiana police force become a REAL Fashion Police? Should we be worried?

All joking aside, we’re not sure it’s a great idea to actually arrest people for their fashion choices. Sure, we pretend to do it here, but the key word in that sentence is "pretend". To actually lock people up over their choice of denim seems a bit much, really, no?

Also: if all of Louisiana makes it illegal to flash your underwear in public, does that mean Britney can never go home again?
