There's no change in the standards, with the tournament still banning hoodies, zipper jackets, jeans, flip-flops, strapless tops, shorts and bare midriffs. But for the first time, the dress code was included in a glossy pamphlet mailed to members of the All England Club.
The guidelines were accompanied by photos of a male and female model.
Acceptable dress for gentlemen means a suit or tailored jacket, shirt, tie, trousers and dress shoes. ''Ladies are expected to dress to a similar standard,'' the brochure says.
Boys under 11 aren't required to wear a jacket or tie. The dress standards will be strictly enforced, and the guidelines are included ''to avoid any embarrassment,'' the pamphlet says.
