Iran weighing 'national uniform' for all

'Islamic clothing that reflects Iran's national and Islamic identity' set to replace 'Western' clothes by law

The Iranian parliament authorized most of the clauses of the "national uniform law" –one of the government projects suggested by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad before parliament.

According to a report in the London-based Arabic-language newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat, the law is supposed to replace what is termed "Western" dress from the streets of Iranian cities, and advance "Islamic" dress.

Iranian men are today allowed to wear "Western" clothes, except a tie – which is forbidden according to the law. Women must follow far stricter laws, including a mandatory head covering, and a ban on clothes that expose the body.
