MEN’S CLOTHING ISSUE The first issue is that pants, by their very nature, may possibly be considered men’s clothing.

There is a Jewish practice to tear one's clothes when in mourning.

Shulkhan Arukh 10:10 explicitly rules that a turban is exempt from tzitzit, even if it covers the majority of the wearer's body. מִצְנֶפֶת פְּטוּרָה, אֲפִלּוּ שֶׁל אַרְצוֹת הַמַּעֲרָב שֶׁב' רָאשֶׁיהָ מֻשְׁלָכִים עַל כִּתְפֵיהֶם וְגוּפָם, וְאַף עַל פִּי שֶׁמִּתְכַּסֶה בָּהּ רֹאשׁוֹ וְרֻבּוֹ פָּטוּר, כֵּיוָן שֶׁעִקָּרָהּ לְכַסוֹת הָרֹאשׁ, דִּכְסוּתְךָ ...
