Nice shots. I'm guessing I know the photographer from my days in Milwaukee...

In the everyday life of the Orthodox Charedi Jew in the US colors play an important role. Yeshiva students are forced to dress in only white shirts and black slacks. Disregarding that code places one in the category of "at risk".And perhaps expulsion from the school.
A Jew walking into a shul on Shabbes (perhaps even yemei Chol ?) in as much as a dress blue oxford shirt or G-D forbid a light summer colored suit may not be able to do a "good" shidduch" for his kids.
So with all due respect what is it with the Rebbes and their technicolor Bekishes and strokes ?
How do they get away with this while we"simple Jews" are regulated to wear black and white. I must note that rebbes like the Gerer, Belzer and the late Lubavitcher stuck to black and white. While the Lubavitcher rebbe before he became rebbe wore black only on Shabbes.(by the way this black and white color pattern was unknown in East Europe).
I recall seeing someplace years ago that Rav Nachman said that the day will come when finding a simple Jew without "shtick" will be as difficult as finding a rebbe and zaddik in his R. Nachman's day...
