Some clothes are illegal in France, Saudi Arabia, Bhutan, North Korea, and Sudan

In France, you can’t wear burqas. Men can’t cross-dress and women can’t show skin in Saudi Arabia. Bhutan has a very specific national dress code that everyone must follow or be fined. In North Korea (surprise!), people must dress “in accordance with our people’s emotion and taste”, which means no pants for women and short hair for men. (They can grow it a bit longer if they need to hide a bald spot.) Women also can’t wear pants in Sudan.
