It's still a law on the books that one must be clothed in town...it's a matter of beachwear is for the beach, but, in town, you need to be dressed properly...just like in the States you see a lot of "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" signs, but most people just ignore them up there, unless walking into a store or place of business. (why they think it's OK to do here is beyond me) Tourists here on STT get told to put on a T-shirt if the man is topless, or the woman is in a bikini top...a man with a button-down shirt has to have at least one button buttoned...outside town it's OK.. Tthe police years ago used to do what we called 'courtesy arrests', which is where they gave them a free ride back to the ship to get a shirt if they didn't have one to put on...but that's not happened in a long time...especially with people selling T-shirts 4 for $10! Haha! But, if pushed, the police can and will still issue indecent exposure tickets ($25, last I knew).

A lot of things seem to no longer have signs (like some if the one-way streets). We got a stern talking to by a police officer when trying to get away from Jump Up last night, but no guidance. How are newbies and tourists to know!?

So if one wears a T Shirt and swim suit bottom, that's not enough cover to comply with the law?:$)

Sorry I forgot, but the last jump up that I was at in STX, I saw an awful lot of pierced belly buttons , Bebe shorts and tied shirts above the rib cage.

It would seem to be common courtesy for visitors or anyone else to throw on a coverup. It's usually the ones you don't care to see in bathing suit anywhere that do it, too.

It amazes me when I see a man walking through town wearing a wifebeater and drinking a heineken.
