The FBI wants better dressed bank customers.

But fashion isn't the issue.

The FBI and police in Ohio are asking bank patrons not to wear hooded sweat shirts, sunglasses and hats.

The Feds say discouraging hoodies and shades has reduced robberies in other parts of the country.

The FBI is asking banks to post signs that say such clothing fits a robber's profile.

A spokeswoman for the American Banking Association says most financial institutions view the dress code as a request rather than a requirement.
