A Southern Illinois courthouse is relaxing its dress code to allow visitors to wear shorts — if they’re long enough.
Jefferson County officials began enforcing a new dress code this week. The rules also banned pajamas, house slippers, hats, tank tops, muscle shirts and halter tops along with inappropriate or offensive logos.
But officials now say they’re relaxing the shorts ban to include “appropriate” items. But too-short shorts are still verboten — if their hemline is above a person’s fingertips when their arms are extended at their sides.
So, what if somebody has really short arms?
