NEW YORK, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- A New York man said he has invented the perfect fashion accessory designed to keep low-riding pants sagging at just the right level.

Andrew Lewis, 43, said his invention, which he calls "Subs," fastens around the waist like a garter belt and holds onto the pants via expandable straps with clips at the end, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

"Sagging is a huge issue in my community," he said. "I spent a lot of time observing and I noticed that even for saggers, there is a point which even they're not comfortable with how their jeans were falling."

Lewis said he is selling the invention for $30 at some local stores and at online shop www.hatchventures.com.
