(KMOV) – Pull up your pants; sagging slacks are now illegal in Collinsville, Illinois.

City council members voted 3-2 Monday night to ban low-fitting britches.

Collinsville is the first Metro-East community to make this trend illegal.

Anyone caught wearing their pants 3-4 inches below the waistline of their underwear could be fined $100-300 and 40 community service hours.

No word on when the ban takes effect.
