    In clubs and bars, some have dress codes to prevent problems. There are several articles of clothing that night clubs in Cincinnati have banned because:

    A. They are indicitive of gang membership. Doo-rags, hats, sports jerseys, etc.
    B. They can be used to conceal weapons. Hoodies, baggy pants

    I'm not saying that it's what I would do if I were a club owner (although I would give thought to a dress code), but I actually asked a bouncer at one of the better clubs downtown about this one night and that was his response.
    HEAR ME ROAR!

      An excellent reason for a dress code.

        My part-time job at a golf course not only requires collared-shirts for the workers, but also the golfers. I thought that was kinda ridiculous, but yeah. Someday I wanna show up with a tank-top/wife-beater with a little snap-on collar on it.

Most of the time I just don't go out when someone invites me to go out and the place has these "rules". Especially the no gym shoes thing. I don't want to even go to a place like that.

            I'm going to D.C. tomorrow to watch the Dodgers/Nats game and afterward some friends and I are going out. This bar we're going to has a no hat policy. Well we're going to a damn baseball game before and who doesn't wear a hat to a baseball game? And it's not like this is a classy place. They're having a power hour that night for christs sake.

            Any opinions on the dress codes? On all these rules?

            Some of the reasons for this is Gangs. i think a bar has a right to allow who ever when ever they want its there place let them set the rules..i know i have rules when i have people over to my house.. SUCH AS NO SHOES ON IN THE HOUSE!!

              no sir they do not want to keep certain persons out they want to make it easier for security to do there jobs.. and not cause tensions amongst other customers..if these people what they are allowed to wear there is NO PROBLEM

                Wrong if they were trying to keep these peoples out they would just not allow them in at all .. you dont know how many fights i see over people clothes..i have to ride the bus hom on fridays from work and i always get a laugh when the G' s start hasseling people over clothes

                  Ha ha, just not allow them in......good one.
                  The last group of thugs that I saw get turned away from the club shot at the doorguy that sent them a packin (and it was the DEADBEAT club? WTF?). The dress code protects the door guys from discriminating against these guys. If a doorman sends someone away without some kind of written backing, the club is ASKING for a lawsuit, or bullet holes (whichever comes first). If there is a written dress code, he can point up to it, and say, "sorry, those are the rules." Even then, he still might get shot at.

Clayton reports that the odds favor Jackson staying in Oakland, but a decision has not been made. "I still get the feeling Jackson will end up being retained." 3 1/2 HOURS LATER, THE RAIDERS FIRED JACKSON.....GOOD CALL CLAYTON

                        How does me not being allowed to wear a hat make it easier for security to do their job? How does "no gym shoes" make it easier for security to do their job?

                        Dress codes are aimed to bring in a certain type of person and keep out a certain type of person. If they want the prepy type they have an across the board dress code (no hats, gym shoes, t-shirts). If they want a little mix, they'll just enforce one or two of those.

                          I hate dress codes too-- Especially pertaining to hats... Why can't I wear my hat during the meal? It's not like it's a giant cowboy hat that's getting in the way... On my birthday I made a point of wearing my hat and flip-flops to the fairly classy steak house we went to just because I figured they wouldn't kick me out on my birthday ...

                          If it were up to me I'd wear my jeans, t-shirt and a backwards baseball cap everywhere I went.

                            If it were up to you, can I wear the same thing? I'd vote for you if you ever run for anything!
