I’m reluctant to mention this for fear that the Wilmington City Council and Chamber might latch on to some new ordinance, but the City of Dunn is trying to stop baggy pants. (Note to Wilmington Council, some bars downtown actually have ABC nights, anything but clothing).
Councilman Robinson’s proposal would amend the city code to outlaw pants worn more than 3 inches below the waist. The council Tuesday night unanimously directed City Attorney Tilghman Pope to create an ordinance for the council to consider.
It’s interesting that nobody talks about WHY this is a fashion statement or that the citizens aren’t interesting in shaming the behavior rather than passing a new law.
