Going to a government office in a singlet just shows amazing levels of ignorance of Thai culture. He should've been turned away.

It is now totally clear that they do no longer require any dress code in niether police stations nor immigration offices.   As I look at the picture, it makes me think that the man might com

Thai culture is one thing, but on the other hand I would also assume that he would not even turn up like that at a government office in his home country! I simply to do not understand these kind of pe

You are not one of these who suggest Cargo Shorts and T-shirt are disrespectful ‘of the establishment’ are you ?

He has to wear at least Trousers, and a collared Polo Shirt to pay respect and deference to the establishment ?

As I look at the picture, it makes me think that the man might come directly from his ballet class.

Why bother to show those retrograde officials the respect of dressing up? What have they ever done to deserve that respect?
