Mitzvah #32 - Don't imitate the non-Jews

It's a Mitzvah to not imitate the Goyim.

One should not follow their fashions in dress, hair style and shaving.

Somebody who needs to dress like them to appear before their royalty, may do so.

Pasuk: "and in their statutes don't walk" (Vayikra 18:3)

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.
