Old law on books.....been to Paris 3 times and wore "trousers" each time. Don't think I would worry about getting arrested. Not enough room in Paris jails to hold all the women that this would apply to on any given day.

You miss the point. The fact is that the French men wanted the women to go nekkid.

You want to see what everyone is wearing? Just Google map an area in Paris, switch on the steet view, and take a look around.

My wife and I wore jeans everwhere and anywhere we went........and so does everyone else!

There are whole books and websites devoted to silly, outmoded, and unenforced laws here in the United States, so why shouldn't Europe have some, too.
