Casino’s code bans saggy pants

Guests in Ohio’s first casino are prohibited from wearing saggy pants and shirts printed with offensive images under a newly posted code of conduct.

The downtown Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opened May 14 and recently posted the conduct guidelines at entrances. A casino spokeswoman tells reporters the standards are meant to create a safe, pleasant environment for visitors and staff.

The rules include other clothing restrictions and ban firearms, loitering and running.

The executive director of the Ohio Casino Control Commission tells The Plain Dealer officials support conduct guidelines that give casinos a framework for turning away visitors who are there “for the wrong reasons.”

The casino in Cleveland was the first of four to open. Toledo’s casino opened in late May. Casinos also are planned in Cincinnati and Columbus.

Should be a ban everywhere on sagging pants. Bad enough the little young wanna b gangstas doing it, but a over 21 idiot wearing sagging pants is just hilarious. They look like typical "fools."

I have read that the saggy pants culture was started in prison, where inmates are not allowed to wear belts.!?.

Apparently, it is "cool" to look the part of a prisoner and those wearing their pants that way are just practicing for when they do get to prison!

+1 for keeping the fools out who wear their pants below their butt-cheeks.

I always heard the look started in "the hood" where stolen pants can be worn if they're too big - just throw a belt around them - but not if they're too small, so everyone wears too-big pants.

Anyway, good for the casinos for having, and enforcing, a dress code.

The style is ridiculous, but so is actually enforcing that at a CASINO in CLEVELAND. Their money spends just the same, and it's a freaking casino for god's sake, it's not like it's church.

It's not about the money, it's about the useless riff raff that wear the stupid pants like that. They don't want to be stereotyped but if you want to show your underwear for God knows what reason, then you don't really belong in society.
Sagging Pants = Major Trouble
And I don't want to hear from the idiots that think it's OK, because it's not, it's disgusting, especially at the grocery store waiting in line, you have these hoodlums showing there underwear in front of CHILDREN. Dress like a human being. Pitiful excuse of human DNA.

Hard to find any non-baggy pants nowadays even if you think you're wearing the right size. If you think not, have someone take a photo and see how stupid they look....pleats? yuk! But I regress, I agree with the dress codes in an attempt to eliminate riff-raff. It actually works in most cases. These jerks have no idea what "cool" actually is.........

sagging started in prison -- it was a way for the prisoners that were "available" to show it. if the kids today really knew what sagging meant maybe they wouldnt. but who am i kidding. they will do it anyways and continue to look stupid. i never understood why they would want to do that anyways in the hood. 9 out of 10 times they are gonna run from the cops anyways. pants around your ankle just slow you down.
