Only Yekkes are allowed
ובחקתיהם לא תלכו
Only Yekkes & Oberlanders
wear modern clothing
The (*חכמת אדם (פ"ט:א
defends Yidden from (כל ארץ
Germany who wear clothing similar to the Goyim.
The חכמת אדם claims since in
Ashkenaz they never instituted
a dress code to be different than the Goyim, therefore there is
no Issur of ובחקתיהם לא תלכו by keeping their
which is similar to the Goyim.
However, Yidden originating from countries where they did
institute a dress code that is different than the Goyim (Lithuania
included) (regardless of the reason) they may not
clothing similar to the Goyim.
Those who do wear such clothing are עובר
on ובחקתיהם לא תלכו
and are חייב מלקות.
