funny fashion laws

Too much leg? Not carrying a club on the highway? Here’s a list of 15 funny fashion laws in the United States.

  1. In Georgia it is illegal to change the clothes on a storefront mannequin unless you draw the shades first. I mean, we’re just being modest, right?
  2. In Fargo, North Dakota it states that a person who is wearing a hat while they are dancing or is present at an event where people are dancing could be jailed. So, no shoes, no shirt, no hat, no service?
  3. Cleveland, Ohio says it’s illegal for women to wear patent leather shoes in public. Heaven forbid they give a gentleman an unintentional peep (toe?) show!

  4. In Natoma, Kansas it’s illegal to throw knives at men wearing striped suits. So… what they’re saying is we can throw knives at men wearing solid suits? Huh.
  5. In New Hampshire it’s forbidden to sell the clothes you’re wearing to pay off a gambling debt.
  6. A city in Arizona made it illegal for men to wear suspenders. (Uh oh! Watch out Hipsters!)
  7. In California there’s a law that says that you cannot wear cowboy boots unless you own at least two cows. Well, at least they are keeping those wannabes in check!
  8. US Legislation says that a woman is not allowed to wear a bathing suit on a highway, unless she is accompanied by at least two police offers OR is armed with a club. For protection, of course!
  9. A Wisconsin law makes it clear that people who look offensive may not go out in public. Well, that’s just rude!
  10. In Nebraska a mother may not give her daughter a perm without a state license. Probably for the best on that one!
  11. In New Jersey they have a law stating it is against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season
  12. An Alabama law forbids men from wearing a funny fake mustache to church. You mushtachin’ be joking!
  13. In North Dakota it is also illegal to lie down and fall asleep with your shoes on.
  14. Vermont states that a woman must obtain written permission from her husband in order to wear false teeth.
  15. In Groton, Connecticut “any utterances from a man in a bow tie are not to be credited.” Fair enough.

Of course, none of these laws are still enforced. But, you’d never know when you might find yourself in a pickle over patent leather shoes!
