Oman: Fashion police in Muscat

Fashion Police - Carrefour MuscatThis new sign in City Centre asks (Omani) people to dress appropriately. Given the understandable sensitivity to western clothing, I wondered why the sign was not also written in English.

An extensive survey of a couple of chaps in the office, suggests that the sign is aimed at local teenage boys who loiter in the mall ‘wearing jeans around their ankles so you can see their arses’ (I translate and paraphrase loosely). This sign should fix the problem.
