Two city officials in northern New Jersey want to make a fashion statement. Or maybe an anti-fashion statement.Paterson Councilmen Ken Morris Jr. and Anthony Davis believe the saggy pants fad is sinking young people to new lows in decorum and decency.They're proposing a public information campaign using posters and billboards with images of young men wearing saggy pants and slogans discouraging it.One "Reality Check" picture would be paired with the slogan, "What the unemployable are wearing today."The councilmen introduced their plan at a workshop meeting two weeks ago. It's not clear yet if the full council will approve it or how it would be paid for.City residents informally polled by The Record of Hackensack had mixed views.
