A US man has been sentenced to three days in prison after turning up to court wearing low-slung baggy jeans.

It has long been acknowledged that trousers which only reach the mid-thigh are guilty of a range of style crimes, however Alabama Judge John Bush ruled that the 20-year-old's jeans were so low that they were actually in contempt of court.

The angry judge ordered LaMarcus D Ramsey to spend three days in jail on account of his outerwear, after he arrived in court to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property.

Ruling that he was in contempt of court for showing his bottom in the courtroom, The Montgomery Advertiser said that Bush told Ramsey: "When you get out you can buy pants that fit, or at least get a belt to hold up your pants so your underwear doesn’t show.”

Saggy baggy jeans are but one style offence that Huffington Post UK believes should be accompanied by a suitable sentence. Take a look through some of the other sartorial sins committed by the male sex.
