ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 20, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Wearing sagging pants has not only been outlawed in Florida public schools, but the Metropolitan Etiquette Authority recently launched a New York City-wide poster campaign to “Pull up Your Pants.” Additionally, a San Francisco musician, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, was recently booted off Southwest Airlines because his pants were hanging too low. Well, there may now be a solution to these problems – DUKEXXX’s “No drag sagg.”
“Sagging has been greeted with such strong disapproval,” says Chris Gladin, vice president of sales and marketing for DUKEXXX. “Some towns and cities across the country have already outlawed it and some states are taking Florida’s lead to try and institute a similar state-wide law. This is why we wanted to provide an alternative for saggers. DUKEXXX ‘upholds’ freedom of choice, so to speak.”
Much controversy surrounds this Florida law. Articles have been printed in publications including the “New York Daily News,” “Huffington Post,” and many more. Civil rights groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have even stepped in to voice their opinion.
In fact, the ACLU viewed Florida State Senator Gary Siplin’s pursuit of this legislation as obsessive and the measures he sought – Draconian.
With DUKEXXX clothing, the boxers are sewn into the black, denim shorts; they are both attached into one piece of clothing. So, are the wearers of these shorts breaking any laws? Gladin, who also holds a Ph.D in business, doesn’t think so.
“At DUKEXXX, we believe that people should maintain the right to express themselves through their personal choice of clothing style,” says Gladin. “It seems that lawmakers should be focusing on more important issues like healthcare, the economy and the environment. Wearing sagging pants should not make the list.”
All clothing items are custom made with an urban design that resembles a cityscape. High school and college kids, skateboarders, surfers, city dwellers, guys and girls, and yes, even well-known musicians will all find something to strut their stuff in. Gladin adds that these items are not “off the rack.” They are hand sewn, high-quality clothing products made of 100 percent cotton.
Currently, DUKEXXX™ offers clothing for guys and girls that include: shorts, bandanas, and T-shirts.
And, when asked just who “Duke” is, Gladin replied, “Let’s just say he’s a freedom rider and leave it at that.”
