On November 17, 1799, eight days after the “Misty Moon Coup” in France, the Paris Police Chief signed a decree: all women who want to wear men’s clothes must obtain a legal permit at the police station. “Men’s clothes” are what we call pants now.
Want to wear pants after that? can! Would you please get a doctor’s certificate in the hospital, and the mayor and the police? Our police department will give you a permit to wear pants.
