Town Bans Baggy Pants Force People To Wear Shirts After 8PM
Officials in a New Jersey beach town are considering rules that would require visitors to pull up their pants, wear a shirt and a pair of shoes while strolling the town’s boardwalk.
The goal: ‘Establishing decency standards on the public Boardwalk’.
Under the regulations, the waistband of pants, shorts, swim suits, and skirts can be no lower than three inches below the waist to prevent the exposure of skin or underwear.
Other regulations require shirts to be worn between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m, and shoes that ‘adequately protect one’s feet from wood or nails protruding from the surface of the boardwalk must be worn at all times’.
