Dark secret of double pockets;Postscript;Letter

1st October 1999 at 01:00
PLEASE can anyone tell me the dangers inherent in "double-pocket shirts"? The following instructions from my daughters' school were given to parents in a letter: "Please do not allow any extreme hairstyles, double-pocket shirts, short skirts" etc.

Clearly these double-pocket shirts are crucial, featuring even before short skirts. It makes me wonder what could happen if

everyone wore the offending article? What effect could that have on the league tables? Will they lead to further moral decline in our young people?
