Louisiana town outlaws 'sagging pants'
Flash underwear, cop fine
A Louisiana town council has unanimously passed an ordinance aimed at tackling the public decency menace of low-slung trousers.
Delcambre Mayor Carol Broussard, earlier this week confirmed he will sign the proposal "to make wearing saggy trousers an act of indecent exposure", the BBC reports. He said: "If you expose your private parts, you'll get a fine." To absolutely clarify his position on the matter, he said of trouser low-riders: "They're better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress."
The possible penalty is US$500 (£254), and offenders really letting it all hang out could face six months' jail.
Town attorney Ted Ayo explained that the ordinance "expands on the existing state indecent exposure law by adding underwear to the list of forbidden exposures". He elaborated: "This is a new ordinance that deals specifically with sagging pants. It's about showing off your underwear in public."
Unsurprisingly, some residents have complained the clampdown is aimed at black citizens, since " low-slung trousers are fashionable among hip hop fans". Broussard dismissed the claim with: "White people wear sagging pants, too." ®
Where the "low slung" came from
I wonder how widely it was be a fad followed by people if they realized it started in jail where those whom were "selling it" were wearing pants that showed it off.

Fake Rolex build quality
I think it depends on the build quality (and ironically the cost) of the fake Rolex. I've seen some that have a very passable 'sweep' action for the second hand. Such examples are ~£100-150 and are even waterproof. However there are still the dirt cheap £10-20 ones which usually have the wrong bezel/face combination, obviously wrong wriststrap, a clunky second hand movement and will probably stop working if in the vicinity of moisture.
