    As we approach the final days of 2020 and many of us across the country are now hunkering down to stay warm amid cooler temperatures, I thought we’d take a look this week at sourcing activity for something a little different – cozy clothing. Sourcing for sweatshirts, sweatpants, and sweatsuits on the platform is up 379% year-over-year and has grown 230% over last quarter averages. In a relatedly comfortable category, searches for pajamas are up 162% year-over-year and up 90% over Q3 figures. The growing interest in these clothing options doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. In 2018, the...

    LOUISE, Texas (KTRK) -- Sanay Martinez, 18, has grown up in Louise all her life and is your typical high schooler. She's been on the cheer squad, color guard and enjoys learning and hanging out with friends. When in-person learning started this fall semester, she wanted to be identified as Sanay instead of Shawn, and officially came out as a transgender woman. "They don't have to accept it, but they should respect it," she explained.
  • Air Force to allow uniformed members to wear turbans, hijabs, beards in new dress code update, officials say

    The United States Air Force updated its official dress code policy this month, in observance of religious practices, to allow military personnel to wear turbans or hijabs as a part of the uniform. The Air Force released an update to the “Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel” code on Feb. 7, now permitting airmen to request a waiver to wear religious apparel while in uniform as long as they are “neat and conservative.”The material used for headwear must resemble the color of the assigned uniform. This includes camouflage, and must be worn in a fashion that presents a...

    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...

    The western Journal ^ | SEPT. 21, 2019 | C. Douglas Golden
    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 doesn’t really matter since the wokeness will just be ratcheted up. If the answer is sorry, sorry isn’t good enough. If they don’t 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 couldn’t 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 School’s YouTube page, according to WTVC. In it, Jared Hensley faces the camera and talks about the school’s policy of not wearing athletic shorts. “I know, boys, you’re thinking, ‘I don’t understand why, it’s not fair, athletic...

    Rochester, N.Y., resident Herbert Smith wasn’t aware of the controversy he was about to create when he was moved to post a photo of a local bar’s dress code to his Facebook page. But since he took to social media to share the long list of items that can’t be worn inside the Murphy’s 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 owner’s 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 Jack’s has some customers a little upset. “The sign is bogus,” said customer Zaena Graham. “I think it’s a bunch of…rubbish.” 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 Iran’s 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 country’s 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 Iran’s security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

    A bar that wants to maintain a “classy atmosphere” has released a dress code, which some are calling racist. The Bottled Blonde, a pizzeria and beer garden in Chicago, recently posted a sign on its doors outlining a lengthy dress code. Here are a few examples from the list of banned items: “No Excessively Baggie, Sagging, Ripped, Dirty, Frayed, Overly Flashy, or Bright clothing. 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 Trump’s 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 California’s Whittier Law School, whose student body is majority-minority, and the professor was Patricia Leary. Though Leary’s 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 weren’t even given a chance to discuss it. The worst part is that just before...
