And god said to the women "Thou shalt not wear a suit"
(Can't remember chapter or verse)
A spokesperson said
[i]Most people have dress codes at work. They have dress codes ...[text shortened]... code,”
That is brilliant!
"We have a dress code so that it can be uniformly enforced"

1 Timothy 2:9:
"I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes".

I found one Catholic site that said pant suits are acceptable attire for females. Perhaps it is a local church thing based on traditional attire.

The "dress-code" is that of the local church.
