As the question itself hints, it is not what that matters here but 'WHY'

As to the forbidden part ...long story cut short - who will forbid and to whom

Nothing is bad as long as your intent is not. Who will decide that : lets see

You are the best judge of yourself...infact the only one that can judge... Guru saheb are there to provide every possible help at every possible instant - we just need to look upto him

No it is not forbidden. But I guess it's important to dress modestly. If you know you are wearing something tight fitted or revealing on purpose to attract attention then it's not good, amritdhari or non amritdhari, what difference does it make? I also think, it's important to note, it's always gonna be different for women and what they get away with wearing. For example, a low cut top, probably not a great idea. But if a man says a woman can't wear skinny jeans, tell him to kindly do one. There's nothing worse that restricting a woman's freedom, just so a man can feel better himself. There are some things which are just extremely silly!

Well it is not forbidden, but YOU have to think yourself if it is right or wrong. Khalsa should always look tyaar bar tyaar, guru ji's children. It represents Guru ji's roop. Khalsa fights kaam krodh lobh moh ahankaar. Now looking at this, do you think it would be right to wear such clothing which may look inappropriate? I wear skinny jeans but they are very loose and don't look bad at all. It is like a pajami. That should be fine i think. But if clothes are tight, or inappropriate, it might not be right to wear them as you have to look modest. Khalsa has to look modest. Talking to Amritdharis or non... This is again something that you have to figure our yourself. Guru ji says have good sangat, dont sit near those who take away your kamai by talking abt maya (relationships, tv, movies, celebrities, etc). But if you sit with a Gursikh, they would talk abt Guru and Sikhi... which is beneficial. So you have to make your choice

I think you just threw back yourself by a 100 years!
