Rabbis launch battle on men's skinny jeans

Religious leaders decree tight clothing inappropriate for men; suggest gowns are more befitting

A new decree signed by top Israeli rabbis this week prohibits devout men from wearing tight pants.

"Every Jewish man is mandated by the holy Torah to dress modestly in loose-fitting clothing," read the edict, which was published in the ultra-Orthodox media.
The public service messages were accompanied by pictures of Jewish men in times of old dressed in loose, gown-like attire.

The announcement is an unusual one, considering that modesty edicts purveyed by zealous rabbis largely tend to target women.

Readers of websites that cater to the ultra-religious public, including Hadrei Haredim and Kikar Hashabat, appeared troubled by the fact that the tables have turned; some pondered exactly which Jewish laws pertain to the male dress code, while one commenter said: "A king's son is glorious within," a play on the Tehilim verse that exults the women's inner character over outward duds.


  1. Perverted "Rabbis" like David Volpe

  2. I like to show off my sexy body, tzitzit and all my curves. Some rabbi probably bought a closeout on ill fitting jeans and thats why they makin this new law.

  3. Perverted Rabbis you bet soon there will be a new sefer on hilchos underwear. Anything these sickos can do to get into everyones elses pants. Then they will add a mitzvah night tax to help buy the Rabbi some more porn.
