I've noticed a few photos recently of JW women all donning some sort of uniform similar to how airline stewardesses (I should say flight attendants) are typically dressed.

She looks fine above according to today's dress standard. I would call this a modern business look. However would it be wrong for her to wear pants below?

The suit jacket she is wearing (obviously made for a woman) would have been denounced as a woman dressing in men's clothes years ago.

Have our standards changed?

This brings up many questions about fashion standards and whether all JW's should sport an official uniform or not?

Would Jesus have wanted his apostles to be dressed in a uniform?

Some might think I am being too picky talking about such issues. However I was raised with very strict JW dress guidelines so I am used to always questioning the appropriateness of apparel.

Just some quick thoughts...

I guess Jesus style of dress would be considered womanly in many countries today.  Men can wear robes in some countries or pants.  I wonder why it's frowned upon for women to do the same as long as it's modest wear?  I guess we have to get with the program kicking and screaming along the way.  I'm still baffled by the term "true religion"!?  Quite shocking coming from those who considered religion strictly a bad word.

Also an interesting thought from "Our Christian Life and Ministry" this week; the Bible study part is on Bible Students seeing the need to improve dress and grooming..............it would appear that not only Bible students need this encouragement.........maybe some of the Brothers and Sisters need this encouragement as well!!!

      One of the mens version seems to have a zipper on it.
      The women's version seems more like a jw.org apron or a sleeveless 'over shirt'. 
      The only text I saw with this photo was:
      "Ayer nuestros hermanos tuvieron el privilegio de dar la bienvenida a una nueva hermana, Sri Yanti!:
      suggesting to me that the entire congregation / assembly (small) was dressed this way.
      Is this going to go worldwide? Covering our suits with aprons?
      Anyone know the story behind this photo? Where? When?
