Shabbos Chazon, only Chasidim are allowed to - ???
Halacha v’lo l’ma’aseh
ONLY CHASIDIM ARE ALLOWED
The Rema (O.Ch. 551: 1) writes, Shabbos Chazon you must wear weekday clothes (except the shirt)
The Aruch Hashulchan (551: 11) writes ,today we do change to Bigdei Shabbos. They were matir
wearing Bigdei Shabbos, otherwise you will be showing Aveilus Befarhesya(public) on Shabbos .
Even though the Rema knew of Aveilus Befarhesya , he wouldn’t allow wearing Bigdei
Shabbos because, in the times of the Rema the style of dress between Shabbos and weekday were
similar. By wearing weekday clothes there is no Aveilus Befarhesya.
When they started wearing Bekeshes and Shtreimels on Shabbos, they were matir to
wear Bigdei Shabbos, otherwise it would be Aveilus Befarhesya..
According to the A.H. ,the Heter of wearing Bigdei Shabbos is only for Chasidim who wear
on Shabbos Shtreimels and Bekeshes. Those who wear suits and hats on Shabbos should wear
their weekday suit and hat.
