“These new clothing regulations are frankly mad and seem more at place during the 1980s under the Soviet Union than they do in a democracy like SA,” DA MP Dean Macpherson charged in a statement.

The DA said there is simply no justification for the minister to be determining what clothes people can buy and worse, how they should wear them.

The party said that according to the regulations:

– Shoppers can buy shirts so long as they are promoted “to be worn under jacket coats and/or knitwear” which was “insulting to South Africans’ intelligence”;

– Shoppers may only buy crop bottom pants so long as they are worn with boots and leggings;
