If you're in Houston, Texas, and are a fan of wearing saggy pants, you won't be welcome in the Greenspoint Mall.

The mall has changed its code of conduct to prohibit baggy pants after security kept asking management to do something about it. Shoppers are now greeted by a bright red sign that reads:  Greenspoint Mall's No Sagging-Pants Policy: Any attire that exposes your undergarments will not be permitted. Please pull up your pants or you could be asked to leave.

The mall is just the latest organization that has targeted baggy pants. US Airways has come under fire recently for refusing to allow a college football player to fly because he his pants were low—but the airline did allow a man to fly in a bra and panties.  

Earlier this month, Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill into law that would suspend students if they don't pull up their pants when in school.
