DUBAI: If you have a wardrobe packed with combat or camouflage fashion, you might want to think twice about wearing it in Oman.

Under a new law anyone caught wearing military-style clothing and accessories in Oman face fines of up to $5,195, national daily Times of Oman reported.

The Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) issued a ministerial decree, which includes a ban on military or similar clothes and accessories.

Those caught breaching the ban will pay a minimum administrative fine of $130, while repeat violators will pay $130 each day, with a maximum fine of $5,195.
