Droopy Drawers

Atlanta is the latest community to consider a law anybody walking around with their underwear showing: This includes a male allowing his boxers to be visible over his droopy pants, or for a female to have part of her thong or even a bra strap showing.

Delcambre, Louisiana is the only place such a law has ever gone in effect, by the way, calling for a fine of up to $500 and a possible 6-month jail sentence.

Of course this sort of law is pretty much unenforceable, and have its proponents really thought it out? Because there’s nothing in the law that says girls can’t get around it by dressing like Paris Hilton and boys looking like plumbers.


  1. It’s amazingly, amazingly stupid. Now that Atlanta has solved its crime problem, tax problem, and all its other problems, the City Council has time to work on …

  4. Does this just end up as a dictum that everyone in Atlanta must go commando?

  5. Simple solution to flaunt this law. If you can’t expose your underwear by sagging your pants – DON’T WEAR UNDERWEAR!

  6. I’m in Atlanta and I HATE seeing the way the kids dress….but making it against the law is just stupid.

  7. I think it’s about time we bring these no account young punk city slickers to task. First they steal gangster rap from Johnny Cash and then they steal fashion sense from Stringbean of the Grand Ole Opry. Shameful I say, shameful.

  9. There’s nothing I love more than to watch young males shuffle around with one hand holding up their pants and showing me their cute boxers! I supppose the next thing to be outlawed will be walking around the city wearing no shirt. Disgraceful.
