Now that the U.S. Senate has dropped its dress code requirement — sparking controversy and even criticism from those who have suggested the move was done to appease Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, who dislikes suits — etiquette experts have been weighing in on the development.
Senators now will be allowed to wear clothing of their choice.
However, others who enter the chamber must comply with the dress code — which is coats and ties for men and business attire for women, as Fox News Digital previously reported.
On Facebook, one commenter shared, “Rules for thee, but not for me. Dress code for everyone in the building except for themselves. I think they should remember WHO they work for.”
Someone else wrote, “Pray for the culture.”
Fox News Digital reached out to Sen. Schumer’s office for comment but did not hear back by publication time.
