No tie, no jacket, no tour

Ok, slight paraphrase. But if anyone was planning to visit the White House, you should remember to pack your polos and khaki pants (emphasis mine):

(CBS) WASHINGTON New signs are posted around the White House indicating a new strict enforcement of the dress code, the Washington Post reported Thursday. The code applies to all visitors and staff members, including tourists.

Some tourists are finding the strict clothing restrictions at the White House un-American.

The forbidden items include jeans, sneakers, mini-skirts, t-shirts, tank tops and absolutely no flip flops.

Why? Because they didn't like the look of the tourists coming though. They just didn't dress "appropriately" enough for the Bush Administration. In a related announcement, Dolores Umbridge was hired as White House Tourist Inquisitor.
