    A friend with ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who must remain anonymous sends the following.Under the leadership of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Saudi Arabia continues its modernization and economic diversity program.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the gradual changes in public dress codes.  Currently, women in professional settings may do away with the veil and in some cases the head covering (hijab) depending upon work conditions and family traditions.  In fact, the mutawa, the Saudi religious police, effectively lost enforcement authority about three years ago.  And of course, women are allowed to drive. Now...

    It seems like one of these stories comes across our collective news feeds every few months. A restaurant or a nightclub posts a dress code somewhere on the premises. Someone spots the dress code and takes a picture of it, then posts it to Twitter or Facebook and talks about how racist it is. An extreme outpouring of conspicuous wokeness ensues. The establishment either apologizes or says sorry not sorry. The answer doesnt really matter since the wokeness will just be ratcheted up. If the answer is sorry, sorry isnt good enough. If they dont say sorry, well, they should...

    Usually it's students who find themselves fighting against school dress codes, often labeled as sexist, racist or just plain unfair. The roles were reversed for a mother of a high school student in Houston who told NBC affiliate KPRC that she was unable to register her daughter because school officials asked her to leave the property due to what she was wearing. Joselyn Lewis was wearing a T-shirt dress featuring a picture of Marilyn Monroe and a headscarf when she she was trying to enroll her daughter in the school and an unidentified administrator at Madison High School asked her...

    A new bar in Jersey City, N.J., is already racking up a bad reputation for displaying a dress code that was interpreted as racist. The Ashford is a highly anticipated addition to the up-and-coming area, but its debut seems to have fallen flat during the first week, based on some reviews. And although a number of people have posted some semi-flattering comments about the food and interior of the speakeasy-style eatery, others couldnt get past a sign that was posted outside its front door. Confused with the dress code, a Yelp reviewer named Sam K. wrote. My blonde female...

    A Chattanooga, Tennessee, high school athletics director has been placed on administrative leave after a video was posted, and then deleted, of him saying boys should blame the girls if they were upset about the dress code, WTVC reported. The Chattanooga Times Free Press and other outlets obtained copies of the video and re-uploaded them. The video was originally posted on Soddy-Daisy High Schools YouTube page, according to WTVC. In it, Jared Hensley faces the camera and talks about the schools policy of not wearing athletic shorts. I know, boys, youre thinking, I dont understand why, its not fair, athletic...

    Rochester, N.Y., resident Herbert Smith wasnt aware of the controversy he was about to create when he was moved to post a photo of a local bars dress code to his Facebook page. But since he took to social media to share the long list of items that cant be worn inside the Murphys Law Irish Pub in his neighborhood, some people are calling out the bar for enforcing a racist dress code. While making plans with a friend to meet up at a nearby bar, Smith received a picture of the questionable dress code posted in the front window...

    A South Side bar owners dress code is generating calls for a boycott. Andrew Balint recently posted the dress code for Twelve Whiskey BBQ and it began circulating on social media. African-Americans in Pittsburgh began to take notice, saying the guidelines seem to target them. I'm not going to give my money and enrich your livelihood if you don't respect me as a person. This is a matter of respect, said Khamil Scantling. Twelve's dress code, titled "proper attire," contains a long list of clothing that's no longer accepted, including Timberland boots, Air Jordan sneakers, baggy clothing, flashy jewelry and...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - The dress code at Kickback Jacks has some customers a little upset. The sign is bogus, said customer Zaena Graham. I think its a bunch ofrubbish. The sign posted inside its restaurant lists the dress code and behavior requirements. The list starts off prohibiting negative attitudes, offensive language, and any attire containing profanity. In a family atmosphere other than just a sports bar, I think profanity should be restricted in any public place, said John Baucom, a customer. The first part sounded OK, but it just got, to me, more discriminatory, said Laurie Washington, who was...

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Police in Irans capital said Thursday they will no longer arrest women for failing to observe the Islamic dress code in place since the 1979 revolution. The announcement signaled an easing of punishments for violating the countrys conservative dress code, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year. But hard-liners opposed to easing such rules still dominate Irans security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

No hawaiian, tie dye, floral, skull prints, or anything else obnoxious. No gang attire (leather cuts, colors, or insignias) and no camouflage. No Embellishments or Statement [attire].

    Misogyny has been a hot topic in 2017. According to a new report from Axios, nowhere is this more evident than in the office President Donald Trump. President Trump has allegedly enforced a dress code upon female members of staff in the White House, insisting that they need to dress like women. A source, who worked on Trumps campaign, also stated that the President places an exacting emphasis on appearance of his staff and insists that they look the part. The source also suggested that most women feel pressure to wear dresses in order to impress him and commented that...

    The College Fix ^ | 7/22/2016 | Samantha Figueroa
    When a law professor wore a Black Lives Matter shirt to class earlier this year, she saw it as a teaching tool and exercise in academic freedom. Some of her concerned students saw the gesture as an attempt to push her personal beliefs on them, but also a threat to their ability to become practicing lawyers and told her so in a much-derided memo. The incident was revived this month after Inside Higher Ed confirmed the institution was southern Californias Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary. Though Learys public critique of...

    The next day, all of us who signed the petition were called into a meeting where we thought our proposal would be discussed. Instead, we were informed that due to our unprofessional behavior, we were being let go from our internships. We were told to hand in our ID badges and to gather our things and leave the property ASAP. We were shocked. The proposal was written professionally like examples I have learned about in school, and our arguments were thought out and well-reasoned. We werent even given a chance to discuss it. The worst part is that just before...

Even though the division I was hired to work in doesnt deal with clients or customers, there still was a very strict dress code. I felt the dress code was overly strict but I wasnt going to say anything, until I noticed one of the workers always wore flat shoes that were made from a fabric other than leather, or running shoes, even though both of these things were contrary to the...

    A Texas high school student was punished with in-school suspension last Monday after a teacher discovered he was wearing an American flag T-shirt, FOX 4 reported. The student, a junior whose name is Jaegur, was wearing the shirt -- which featured an American flag design with an eagle in the foreground -- at Seagoville High School in Dallas when an administrator determined the shirt violated the school dress code. Jaegurs mom, Shelly Goode, fears the suspension will show up as a permanent mark on his record, ruining any chance her son can earn a scholarship through the ROTC program. He...

    This probably looks like an unusual topic for Hot Air, but the rather frivolous nature of the subject speaks to some deeper societal questions which cross all sorts of boundaries. In Connecticut, one high school issued guidelines for proper attire at the prom this year and it has some of the teenagers up in arms. (And a lot more than just arms are visible in some cases.) Shelton High School sent out a memo letting families know that their daughters should not show up looking like Lady Gaga on the red carpet when prom night comes. This is apparently...
