HOUSTON (KTRK) — Pants worn far below the waist of young men is a common sight, but one Houston mall is taking a stand. It’s a popular style of wearing pants called “sagging” where the bottoms are worn way below the waist.
Wearer Derrick Johnson said, “Man, it’s just a fashion statement. It’s just something we do.”
But sagging is something no longer allowed at Greenspoint Mall now that it’s changed its code of conduct. Self-described “saggers” like Gregory Power say they don’t like the policy one bit.
“I think it’s outrageous,” he said.
An ABC13 Eyewitness News viewer sent us a photo of the “no sagging pants policy” Greenspoint Mall recently posted at its main entrance. Some shoppers like Irma Garza say it’s about time.
“I think that’s good, because it makes the mall look bad with all the guys wearing the pants down,” Garza said.
No one from the mall would talk on camera about the new no sagging pants policy, but a Greenspoint spokeswoman told me the fashion trend was causing such an issue, security kept asking management to do something about it. – Source
