Hoodies, bare midriffs out for Wimbledon members
Sunday - 6/24/2012, 11:18am EDT
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Wimbledon's dress code for members has a new look this year.
There's no change in the standards, with the tournament still banning hoodies, zipper jackets, jeans, flip-flops, strapless tops, shorts and bare midriffs. But for the first time, the dress code was included in a glossy pamphlet mailed to members of the All England Club.
The guidelines were accompanied by photos of a male and female model.
Acceptable dress for gentlemen means a suit or tailored jacket, shirt, tie, trousers and dress shoes. "Ladies are expected to dress to a similar standard," the brochure says.
Boys under 11 aren't required to wear a jacket or tie. The dress standards will be strictly enforced, and the guidelines are included "to avoid any embarrassment," the pamphlet says.
