The Caddo Parish Commissioners typically pass ordinances and help plan out streets and highways. Now, one commissioner wants to tackle the parish's dress code. Michael Williams plans to present a proposal to ban people from wearing pajamas in public in Caddo Parish.
"Today it's pajamas. Tomorrow it's gonna be I can wear my underwear in public," said Williams.
He says he got the idea while shopping at Walmart.
"I noticed 3 men had on loose fitted pajamas that was revealing and showing their body parts," Williams said.
Caddo Parish resident, Thomas Murphy would support the plan.
"Pajamas belong in the bedroom. I think if you're so lazy you can't get up and get off the couch to go shopping properly dressed, stay at home," he said.
However, most people KSLA News 12 talked to described the proposal as, "absolutely ridiculous."
In 15 minutes, about a dozen people walked into the Target on Youree Drive with pants that some might consider pajamas.
"Anything could be considered pajama pants. What I have on could be considered pajama pants. I guess you would have to make everyone wear blue jeans so you could tell," said Crystal Bordovsky who would not support a ban.
Williams said when writing the ordinance he would describe pajamas as, "loose fitted garments designed for sleeping and lounging in the house."
Williams hopes to submit an ordinance at the Caddo Commissioner's 1st meeting in February, which is February 9th.
He says the city of Shreveport already has a no sagging ordinance. Officers use their own discretion in enforcing it, and he says a pajama ordinance would be similar.
