There is a nation wide crackdown on baggy pants in the U.S. It is possible that many parents are under-aware of the origins of the droopy drawers. It seems the fad started in prison, where you can't have belts. So the inmates would let their pants droop. Florida is the latest state in the USA to consider such a law that would ban people from wearing saggy pants.
Implications - The problem of saggy pants is very relevant in the school systems. There has been a bill passed in Florida that states that a student can get suspended for having a saggy bottom. Many people are tired of seeing boys constantly flashing their underwear and pulling at their pants.
