Brothels[edit]

That's a poor citation based on a student's review of his university:

In the summer, you often see Japanese tourists getting their cameras out in the hope of catching some St Andrews students strolling through in their striking red undergraduate gowns. Apparently they are such a bright red as this was originally to deter students from entering brothels!

The wording takes this as fact when even the student qualified it with 'apparently' . Suggest the editor find a better source. Rgds, --Bill Reid | Talk 16:14, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Oh, and one of the bullet points is unfinished 'Dundee - The yoke and collar of the gown is' --Bill Reid | Talk 16:17, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
