Is the school uniform a good or bad idea?

According to the legacy educational resources, as fashion and trends change, students become more concerned with how they look and how they are perceived than they do with their academic success and achievement. The fashion of low rise jeans, bagging jeans, large trench coats, low cut shirts, and many others contribute to behavior problems and safety issues in the classrooms and in the hallways of schools today.

Clothing that causes a safety hazard or classroom distraction can be easily handled via dress codes. There is no need to dress kids up like good little Stalinist drones, just to keep Monica from flaunting her budding bosoms, or Jorge from wearing his gang apparel, or Marcus from having his boxers and half his butt crack hanging out of his pants.

Typically school uniforms work better than non uniform dress codes in more than one way.

1. They keep inappropriate things out. Non uniform dress codes normally have leeway that allow Ms. Monica to flaunt some part of her body. Just because you don't see skin doesn't mean it isn't accentuated.

2. School uniforms often eliminate or lessen stress based upon social/ economic standing (at least within the school setting.) Unlike skin, if it isn't seen then there is something left to be imagined unless the student is confident in speaking of their social/ economic standing.

3. It is easier for authority figures to determine if a student is from a certain school or not, unless the person is willing to jump over quite a few hurdles it won't happen whereas it is fairly easy to gain entry into a school with non uniform dress codes.

4. Some would believe that uniforms improves academic performance. This is proposed as the use of uniforms typically increase discipline in the classroom which leads to a more orderly and enjoyable learning experience.

5. Uniforms are often more cost effective as the parents or the students, depending on circumstances, have to purchase less.

Uniforms aren't Stalanistic is any manner, they solve a lot of problems but that does not mean they are the only way to go. Uniforms can also create a few problems depending on where said uniforms are coming from. Take a religious school with uniforms geared toward one religion, some would say that their own religious dress code not being respected. In the end it is up to the parent/ student to choose whether they would like to have said student attend a school with uniforms or not.

The argument is old but I wanted to get a point across.

I think school uniform is a good idea. Because there is the gap between the rich and poor, school uniform is efficient in many ways. If they wore to plain clothes every day, they concerned about clothes by brand and quantity of clothes. Teenager is sensible so the poor students can feel inferior. Although school uniform is very expensive , it is cheap better than plain clothes. Also they feel sense of kinship and sense of belonging. In my case, school uniform is convenient. I don't have to worry about my clothes during my student days.

I think school uniform is a good idea. It will make pupils more concentrated on their education than on their clothes. I believe that school uniform instills discipline among pupils; it makes pupils with different material statuses more equal. Of course, there will be difference in more expensive and cheaper uniforms but it wouldn't be so appreciable as if they wear their usual clothes. Someone can say that school uniform violates their freedom of expression, but in my opinion, children go to school to learn, they can express themselves in other places when they go out, or express themselves by participating in school activities and lesions.

Seriously? Clothes aren't a big deal. The social economy is what matters. The clothing are just what tips the scale on your social "level". For example, if a poor kid wears a uniform, he is still identified as the poor kid. The jock wearing a uniform, he is still the jock. What changes the pupil is the pupil and the environment. Not the clothes. Also, it won't be equal. If its about bullying you're "worried" about, its not the clothing or whatnot its the race and sadly the culture that the pupil is from. Although students to go learn at school, they're not sitting there in the class 24/7 learning about subjects. They talk too.

You can't eliminate the girl's desire to possess clothes by forbidding her from wearing the clothes of her choosing for, what, like six hours a day?

I believe in the state or federal government controlling the masses... as long as those masses are masses of obnoxious teenagers or children who don't mind it.

Bring on the uniforms. Just make sure they uniforms are unisex, though. A uniform where the males where jeans and the girls wear long skirts is, frankly, sexist.

The uniform should be available to both sexes of the student in both forms (hey, some men don't mind wearing 'kilts').

Other then all that drivel, though, I have nothing else to really say. I see nothing wrong with controlling teenagers. The intelligent, good teenager will understand why we impose uniforms on them and the obnoxious pricks among the teenagers will feel like they are being punished. What's the problem?

While I can understand the reasons of the opposition, and agree that pupils should be allowed to express their individuality - surely, in school, the way to do that is through your opinions, actions and intelligence, not through your physical appearance?

I myself am a thirteen-year-old girl who has to wear school uniform, and I don't mind it since it puts emphasis on the work you do and the things you learn rather than your looks and clothes. School is a place of learning, and the more we can prevent other pupils judging each other on superficial things the better.

I agree to the motion, that students should wear school uniform to school. I believe that by wearing uniform, students will be more elagent even though some students say it is such a hassle. I agree students should wear uniform because teacher will easily identify the students. In realaty there are no name tags, so students are wearing many types of cloth that follow the latest fashion. Maybe all of the teachers will give up because there is no discipline in school. So by wearing uniform , it shows that the students of the school are well-disciplined. They think that if they wear expensive clothes they are better then everyone else. Some people might say, wearing a school uniform takes away individuality and self expression, but you don't have to try and be better than everyone else.

School uniform is a great idea, just because it makes impossible to hold the race for the fashion among pupils. let it be, one pupil is richer than another. rich can begin to show off in front of those who are poorer. this action will create a negative atmosphere in the school and can start row between both pupils. As a rule, As a rule, it often occurs between the girls, although it is not rare between the boys. that's why school uniform liquidates all conflicts.

Also no matter if the children are rich or poor they still dress the same, so there will be no any difference or classify as all and it's also help students to go along without any segregate.

Frankly, if kids didn't dress like whores and drug dealers all the time then it wouldn't be a problem, but since a lot of them do school districts have to turn to such a thing.

The argument of individuality...who cares? That's a load of bull. Is school the only place these kids go? What is stopping them from going home and putting on different clothes after school? And it isn't the schools job to make sure that every kid gets to "express their opinion." School is meant to be a learning environment, not a fashion show or a night club.

If you want your kids to wear uniforms, go to a school that allows that. But don't go crying to me that your kids are underachieving, easily-distracted, derelicts that can't focus their attention for 5 minutes in class.

But my message is clear. Uniforms are here to prevent problems that not wearing uniforms would cause.

Having been to schools with uniform and no uniform, I'd say it's a good idea. Invariably, if you allow uniform, you will get arguments over what's 'school appropriate', and people constantly push borders.

If you look at the best school systems in the world, you see at the top, school uniform. Lower down, you start to see a few countries with no uniform as standard, but there's definitely correlation. Yes, correlation without cause, potentially, but I'd consider it a attributing factor.

And also, school is a practice for working in later life. In most jobs, you will probably have to wear a uniform of sorts, in some places that's a suit, in another a nice shirt, in some nothing but a tux will do. Wouldn't it make more sense to get used to wearing a uniform when you're young, to practice for later life? That is the only reason you go to school after all.

In a school all the students may not belong to the same financial status . Some may be rich , some may not be that rich . So uniform provides equal status to all the students so that there is no gap among them . If there is no uniform , then the rich students will wear new dresses everyday which the other students cannot afford and may lead to resentment among them .

Some insensitive children may also mock other students wear old cloths .

So I beleive that uniform is essential especially in developing countries .

Good in some ways, bad in others, i think that if the purpose of children going to school is to learn, that learning should be the priority. As some of the other posts mentioned, fashion is a distraction in some measure, it also creates arbitrary in and out groups based on material posessions and promotes materialism and consumerism. Materialism and consumerism is not a horrible thing, but i feel that children would benefit from less distractions and might feel that self worth is based on internal attributes rather than what you own and what you wear. I am not sure if uniforms are very important when it comes to education, it seems not central to any significant issue in education.

Also, as a uniform to be worn as a sexy outfit by a person of the appropriate age, they are definitely appreciated :).

In an effort to decrease school disciplinary issues, school safety, and low academic standards, strict uniform policies have been proven to help enhance the school climate. As an integral part of changing and improving school climate, professionalism and safety are two key factors that a uniform policy can fulfill. In addition to these key factors, uniforms will also help place the emphasis back to a focus on education rather than peer pressure, violence, and the lack of motivation in students.

I am for Uniforms. The purpose of it is to stop discrimination between those with money and those without. I dont agree that clothes are used to express feelings. So if i'm happy I wear a blue shirt? That's bull. They can wear jewelry if parents really feel their child needs to express themselves at school. Instead I think they should be focused on learning the material instead of taking in all the expression in the room. It forces kids' "status" to be based of personality and intelligence vs wealth and class. Also it makes it easier on the parents when it comes to buying the clothes and deciding what should be worn the next day. No more 100 dollar jeans because the kid sitting next to your child has some. 100% for uniforms.

First of all, the social and material statuses of pupils are not same. How you know everybody in school estimate individual’s family status by clothes and other equipments (telephone, notebooks, etc.). And for some families introduction school uniform will be good way for escaping extra-financial costs. Thus, school uniform will equate children. Secondly, the uniform will build pupils integrity, uniting the group in a collective. Thirdly, fighting with girl’s short skirts, vulgar decollate and jeans with low planting will be disappears. Consequently youth seduction will decrease, because it is not a secret for anyone that such girls appearance attract attention not only their classmates, as they think, also mentally ill people- maniacs

T-shirts with offensive slurs subconciously contribute to negative attitudes, which leads to negative behavior, and should be banned altogether. The schools should not allow anyone to wear revealing apparel because doing so, it will foster a sexually perverse environment. I am very well aware of the argument that schools should not oppress freedom of expression, particularly because no other public area is subjected to the controversy of whether not to disallow blatant freedom of expression. So to prove no hypocrisy, society should not allow the marketing of morally questionable apparel. I am also aware of the argument that blatant expression of the self is merely human nature. However, I firmly and logically believe that allowing an abrasive outlet for it can lead to the justification of unleashing the darkest aspects of human nature, therefore bringing the world into a dystopia.

I think it's good within certain limits. I went to a school with a uniform, and it was far less stressful than non-uniform college. I'd argue that it's a leveler- prevents people from showing off material wealth/ making others feel bad for not having 'cool' stuff.

Uniforms allow an equal and fair social status only based on personality and not looks. I do half to admit wearing what you want is fun and creative but its only fun if everyone can do it and for some children thats not the case and they cant afford to live up to their peers standards so uniforms would make social life much easier and it would give a more mature look to the school.

I'm for it! But not in the sense of "victory over class differences." The form must be especially convenient. In addition, it should be beautiful. And yet a mandatory requirement. It should be in different versions, and not just because it was in Soviet times. On the girl brown dress, and only had a black apron for every day and white at the festival. The current form should allow the girl to have and a skirt and pants, and a variety of options for jackets, sleeveless and blouses. For the boys, too, should have a choice. And not necessarily shirts and ties. Can be shaped and T-shirts with the logo of the school. And the uniform sweater. And it would be more easy to determine in each school fabric for "top" and "bottom", and then everyone necks from it what you like.

Nowadays, almost all schools have the uniform and as far as I concerned it is a great idea. Firstly, school uniform unites students from one school, making them a team as well as school uniform helps to equate students from different social levels. Children who come from a less fortunate economic background would not appear to be "lacking" or made fun of because their parents could not afford to buy them the newest trendy clothes.

Secondly, school uniforms would save time students’ time, they would not have to think about what to wear in the morning. Students will be much less focused on appearance and more on learning.

However, school uniforms will restrict the outward expression of a child's unique individuality. School's primary function is to educate, but secondarily is a platform for socialization where clothing can play a role, but nevertheless, in modern society there are a lot of ways to show individuality, except clothes, such as active student life, hobbies.

Using uniforms in school is very important, it shows your discipline and well abiding of school regulations. Be proud to your Alma Matter, your uniform shows where you belong and where you have been.

My family being of poor financial state, the uniform allows us to not have to spend a lot of money on clothes.

I've always supported thing that School uniform is a bad idea. There are a lot of reasons I think in this way. To start, I want to mention that nobody should dictate children at school what to wear. I believe that clothes we wear express our today's mood, express character. For some people, who belong to different subcultures, and especially it happens at school, clothes - is the only one way to show it, to express emotions. The second argument I have is that I guess none wants to be similar to another. I feel myself bad even when some girl has the same t-shirt, for example, and there is a great amount of people like me. So Can you imagine our feelings when there is also two thousand people fully in the same clothes as we? It's disgusting. I think that everyone lives in this world independently, everyone behaves how he want, eat what he wants, sleep when he wants, study and work where he wants, so he should wear what he wants too.

And can you explain me for what puprpose you want children to wear a uniform? What does it give you?

The main disadvantage is really to the parents of "less fortunate" children. It is a burden to have to have specific clothing types, colors, and styles for children to wear to school. Especially if different age children are in different schools with different dress codes. Also, the schools themselves seem to get too caught up in uniform enforcement. is it really that disruptive to the class if my son's shirt isn't tucked in when he sits at his desk? Is it really necessary to send a child home who is out of uniform (for whatever reason), instead of letting them stay and learn?

In theory, it was a good idea...removing the gang colors, and brand symbols, and the individuality so that students could focus more on learning, but it's unrealistic and overly burdensome.

It also teaches children that they, as individuals, are not important. We used to encourage individuality and appreciate each child for their uniqueness...not anymore.

of course, for me , as a student, is a bad idea. we should have the right to wear what we prefer and feel comfortable in, and not forced to wear what the school wants us to wear everyday. and even though we say that this society is equal , but the moment u see a person wearing a uniform, u will know which school the person is from. and then, they will criticize the person just because he or she is from a school that is not that famous and good in academics, and when people see those in high class school uniform and a famous and good school uniform, they will start to compare their own child or to themselves, and this fact is quite irritating to those who are not in a good school. i think that we should be allowed to wear what we feel comfortable in and what we like .

High Cost of School Uniforms- Uniforms are not cheap and this is a good reason to be against school uniforms. Because children are constantly growing, there is a captive market for new school clothes and manufacturers take advantage.

Some students might wear amusing costumes for a period of time but in the end they'd probably get over it and just wear normal clothes. Some people argue that it protects poor families from abuse over the quality of clothes but the prices for school uniforms seem to reflect the complete opposite. Really, it depends what you value more: students that look smart and probably don't feel completely comfortable, or students that feel comfortable and relaxed and are able to concentrate on their learning, and are wearing casual clothes.

All students should be allowed the freedoms of expression and creativity. Students also deserve the right to be an individual and make their own decisions. Without the freedom to express themselves, students can not reach their full potential. Creativity is an important quality in a successful person. They are all individuals and are not able to express ourselves as such with a dress code. There should however, be teachers that decide whether clothing is appropriate, but other than that, students should wear whatever they want.

Apparently even on dress down days (last Friday on every month) I would get reprimanded for having putty in my hair. They expect us to wear our sunday curch cloths or something. Girls would get in trouble for wearing "diva" type loop earrings. It's very totalitarianism. I'm not offending anyone. I felt so trapped in uniform. Worse, the school makes a cut by forcing parents to purchase a specific type of uniform through a specific company. One time right before school started I grew significantly over the summer and my uniforms wouldn't fit so I went out and bought the exact looking uniform but the principal found out it wasn't company X so I got in trouble and had to order a new pair (yes, I drew attention with putty in my hair lol).

I take the view that, school uniform is very comfortable. Because there is the gap between the rich and poor, school uniform is efficient in many ways. If they wore to plain clothes every day, they concerned about clothes by brand and quantity of clothes. Every teenager is sensible so the poor students can feel inferior. Although school uniform is very expensive , it is cheap better than plain clothes. Also they feel sense of kinship and sense of belonging. In my case, school uniform is convenient. I don't have to worry about my clothes during my student days.

While it's a problem, all it does is sweep the one basic type of bullying under the rug. Kids will find other reasons to bully others.

There are many reason why uniforms are horrible ideas for children...

-Growing up is a child's time to discover themselves. Uniforms may cause students to find other ways to discover themselves.

-For every kid to wear them same thing may cause others to compete. For a self conscious kid to wear the same as everyone else may have their self esteem decrease, in other words rises in suicide rates.

-Parents have to but two different wardrobes for their children. Let's face it if kids buy expensive normal clothes there uniforms will be too.

-At school teachers pay attention to if the kids are wearing their uniform rather than teaching the class. For one kid to not wear their uniform correctly takes time from learning.

-There are more kids with inappropriate tattoos, piercings, and hair color just to be able to be distinguished from all the other students. Either this is a form of rebellion or their parents understand that kids need some form of creativity.

-There are 270 days a year for 13 years of each kids life spent in uniform; School could be compared to prison

I have debated this topic until I am blue in the face. Fact of the matter is it is irrelevant whether uniforms or not. It does not help the learning process or behavior. Kids will still find ways to pick on other children whether it is their tie is crooked, their uniform dirty etc. Kids are kids and no matter how they are dressed they will continue to act as such.

As for expression not being important in school that is rediculous. School is not just a place to learn about math etc. it is also a place to learn about who you are. Schools should encourage self expression, individuality, imagination etc. We have too many people in this world controling how we act, speak and behave. This is the reason schools have art, nusic etc. to help children express themselves. The best teachers are the ones that can bring out these traits in our children and get them interested in learning at same time.

As for fashion. That issue is on the parents. Those who want their kids to have the best clothes and be fashion plates etc. That should not be the schools concern. Parents who buy their children's clothes based on brand etc. are asking for shollow, materialistic children. Fashion and learning have nothing to do with each other. Children will find other ways to be distarted or misbehave.

As my teacher, Mr. Wade says, school has become a prison. We have zero free choice, and must do everything by the book. America was founded on free will, and what we are doing in schools does the exact opposite. We are training people for specific things, the exact same way. What happened to freedom of thought? Freedom of expression? School uniforms only fortify the idea that the government is attempting to make it so that we are not individuals, but the exact same as each other. I apologize if this is confusing.

To some extent I agree with your teacher,that the school became a prison, which prohibits freedom of thoughts and desires. I understand it myself, because I too went to school and wore the form, which I did not like, until the moment I was faced with this case.

One day I was talking with a friend to whom i complained that I do not like to carry this form, and waiting to hear me all she said to me that she was very pleased ofschool uniform entering. I asked why and she said that it was thanks to her, as she feels an equal footing with other students and feels neither a little lower than others, because of its troubled financial situation.

And after her words, I understand why in fact introduced a single form. Everyone is to be on an equal footing and there was not any infringement.

I think you would understand the whole situation had placed themselves in such situation when you have no means always dress nicely and wear new clothes. Then I think each of us would fit even the fact that schools impose such rules.

It is bad, because you have not got possibility to show your personality. I agree, that there are should be special restrictions, to ban too vulgar dresses or torn jeans, because it is school, and we should not forget about it. So, there are should be some business-wear style, not too casual. I disagree that uniform should be same for everyone, because some colors does not suite good for someone, or particular style of skirt, and people should emphasize their beauty, to fill more comfort and to be more confident.

I personally think that uniforms are bad because, it affects badly for student's individuality. Uniform itself is also uncomfortable and during the winter it is very cold. Student's should have a right to wear whatever they want as long as it is appropriate.

I truly believe that wearing uniform is bad, because it is not helping to student to express his/her individuality. It is also very uncomfortable , and during winter time might very cold as well. That is why schools shouldn't force students to wear uniform.

I am really upset after reading this page. One side thinks school uniform good idea to make all students equal and to create one gray mass; others believe that it prevents individuality expression. in my mind school is the place where children get Knowledge, there is no competition of clothes. Every institution has it`s own rules(clothes, shoes, helmet...) and to pay so much attention to clothes is stupid. Kids should concentrate on GETTING KNOWLEDGE!!!

That is bad point to make studens wear school uniform because this rule to wear only school uniform and nothing more which limited students' imagination,creativity in school. Students are feel themselves very succinctly, they are seems as one equal unpresentable crowd of people without own style. Rude rules to wear school uniform is killing students' personality and it can be influenced for their future developing as bright personality. My own experience in school is so boring when i must had wear school uniform. I always had been sruggling with system but i lose as others. Schools are achieving control students by making students equal with wearing school uniform. Governments in those countries where exist such schools must intervene to school life with changing school laws to wear uniform.

I want to mention about wearing school uniform by high school students. it really makes no sense, it's the opposite, it just makes troubles within students and teachers relations. People aged 16-18 do not like any limits and sometimes limiting their freedom can become very serious problem followed by misunderstandings with the rest of people like parents and teachers. What about the controlling person's behavior - it must be done in the childhood, but not in the age when students become adults.

Another reason argued against school uniforms is that they deprive the children of their individuality. The stress on a uniform dress code in school opposes the spirit of unity in diversity and its celebration. It is even claimed to restrict socialization, a vital aspect of human nature.

I don't think so. In school uniforms children are equal. But however they don't miss their individuality. And school uniform are not so uncomfortable. Nowadays there are o lot of different types of uniform, and each student can buy what he or she prefer. They can choose uniform as they wish!

Why you think so?In my opinion you can buy one school uniform, and your child will wear it during the whole school year.It is better than buying a lot of different clothes, because children will not wear the same clothes every day, without uniform student have to think every day what to wear. Then in our society there are a lot of family, which have not enough money, and can't buy clothes very often. For example child form families like that, will feel himself no comfortable, and it can effect badly on him.

But wearing one uniform for the whole year, it's aweful. And it's not so necessary to buy so many clothes. The main thing is to be clear and being comfortable. Also, child can feel himself/herself uncomfortable when other children wear beautiful and expensive uniform. You mean, that NOT wearing school uniform shows social status of pupil. But don't you think that wearing cheap and expensive uniform also shows social status of pupil(child).

School uniforms are bad because we don't want to be like everyone else and looking the same. There should be no school uniform because if they aren't school uniforms students would more them self's they would show there true colors and they would be more comfortable with them selves instead of wearing uniforms. And if they were school uniforms in the school no one is going to go in and wear it and they wouldn't be to happy about it .Also uniforms are not cheap if the parents are poor and they cant afford it are the kids going to be kicked out because of that ? There for just because there are kids that doesn't mean that they should be ignored , the kids have rights also.

It's actually cheaper kids coming to the school because then they can just where the clothes they where everyday. I can understand the no jewellery policy (hell i agree with it) but it's definitely cheaper if kids don't have to waste all their money on overpriced uniforms!!! Also it brings a profit to the school because more kids will want to go and parents will be just as happy to send them because it's cheaper.

Individuality isn't shown through the cloths we wear,it's by the way we act ,think and the talents we possess. Just pick the most suitable size of uniform will settle the problem of uncomfortable.

1. Students should have the right to express themselves through clothing since most of their other ways of expressing themselves have already been eliminated.

We think that no one wants to be similar to another. I feel myself bad even when some girl has the same t-shirt, for example, and there is a great amount of people like me.

2. School uniforms are expensive. While many students in public school may be able to easily afford uniforms, there are families with lower incomes who may have difficulty affording the necessary garb. This can impose an even greater burden on lower income families who may have enough troubles already.

School uniforms cost more for a lower qualty of fabric because the Schools take speacil orders making it more expensive for the parents.

Supporting Points:

1. Some kids don’t look good in their uniforms and it makes them feel bad.

2. They have to wear the same colors everyday and this may bore them.

3. Some children may be uncomfortable wearing uniforms which may affect their learning

4. Perents are just wasting money for buying clothes for their kids but then they do not use it, it’s just wasting money.

5. Some uniforms are not matching the weather.

School uniforms are a bad idea. They are because kids want to show color. Plus, who would want to buy new clothes that you can't wear to school? I don't. Also, kids should show emotions in their clothes. Plus, uniforms are just a simple shirt and pants (or dress or skirt, if youre a girl) that you wear every day. So I say school uniforms are a definite BAD idea.

School uniforms have only one purpose: make you feel as insignificant and mass-produced as possible. It completely erases all traces of personal expression.

I can't see one good thing about it.

People like to think that that makes children (specifically, girls) more united, because there's no "flaunting". Well, that's wrong. Also, it puts the blame on the girls instead of the people who perpetuate this notion, and society, which birthed this concept.

If a person wants to flaunt it, they damn well should.

Telling kids to hide their bodies is body-shaming and toxic. It teaches them, especially people with boobs, that their bodies are inherently bad, that their bodies should never be seen. Do you really want your child to hate their body like that?

Instead, try telling little Joe that the world does NOT revolve around what makes his weenie happy.

And just to add to this part: my gym teacher is 26 and he has abs you could skate on. He also looks like Ryan Gosling. And yet, not a single teenager has ever lost their abilities to focus because of his attractiveness.

Besides, uniforms are expensive, yo. Seventy-five dollars for a freaking shirt?! What, is it made out of unicorn hairs? Add the hundred and twenty dollars that you'd need for the pants, and the two hundreds you'd need for the shoes, and you have a bill that's higher than all of my 7 pairs of pants combined with my 8 pairs of shorts.

And you'd probably need to buy new ones every six months or so, because the fabrics they use are only good for washcloths.

Probably not even that.

Schools should not create dress codes.

On one hand, yes, uniforms help student focus more on thier work. On another, uniforms also help with keeping order in a school(kids are highly impressionable... etc.....). But kids are allowed ot have thier own creativity.

Just like any other law or code, they can have specific rules to prevent wearing certain things.
