New courthouse dress code bans muscle shirts and halter tops

An Illinois sheriff says courthouse visitors should wear proper dress—and wear it correctly.

Sheriff Roger Mulch has announced dress requirements for the Jefferson County Courthouse that take effect on Aug. 19, reports KFVS12.

Visitors should not come to the courthouse wearing: cut-offs; shorts; house slippers; tank tops; muscle shirts; halter tops; mesh shirts; hats or do-rags; pajama tops or bottoms; and clothing with inappropriate or offensive logos, pictures or writing.

Clothing should also be worn correctly and as designed, Mulch says.
