Everybody has different styles and tastes in fashion, but can fashion get you ticketed? In South Carolina, a new law may be passed that can fine a person if their pants are 3 inches below the waist.

For the first offense, you will be fined $25. A second offense will be $50. If a third offense occurs, it will be $75 along with up to 6 hours of community service.

Both democrats and republicans are all for this new law. Does this mean we’ll have a dress code in public too?

People are saying that kids and adults who have their pants too low are exposing too much. This isn’t the first time the idea has been proposed, but now it might be very well going into action. Will this lead to more dress codes? Will this new law expand across the United States? Do you think this is a good idea, and do we need to stop all the saggy pants once and for all? Or is giving someone a ticket for wearing their pants low a bit excessive?

We asked a couple of students at Bullard to get their opinion on this topic.  Bullard sophomore Josiah Zamora, although he’s not super into the style, sometimes wears his pants a little lower, but always with a pair of gym shorts under. He commented, “It’s honestly just a different taste of fashion and style. As long as nobody can see your underwear, I think it should be left alone. Paying a fine is unconstitutional, as you can’t just make people pay money for a different style of clothes.”

That sentiment is the most popular among students, obviously. Mr. Podsakoff had a somewhat similar opinion. He said that it’s public education, and it would only make sense for a private school with a strict dress code. He says he does not think it’s appropriate for students and will affect them later in the job world if it eventually becomes a habit. So, judging from these opinions, it is very unlikely that the fine for sagging pants will come to Fresno, as it does not seem to be much of a concerning issue.
