A man should not wear a women’s garment

 “A man should not wear a women’s garment” Devarim 22:5

A women’s garment is clothing or jewellery which are widely known in the city to be specifically for women.

Similarly, if a man plucks even one white hair from amongst the dark on his head or beard,

or if he dyes one white hair amongst the dark hair- one of these acts is a violation.

The Scribes said a man is not to remove the hair of his armpits and his pubic hair and whoever removes it from a place where women remove it is liable for lashes for disobedience.

It is however permissible to remove hair of other limbs or areas using scissors.

This applies in all places at all times.
