LDS missionaries in some countries no longer required to purchase suit coats

The dress code for some missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has changed, according to a release on the Mormon Newsroom blog.
While missionaries are known around the world for their formal attire, the LDS Church recognizes that coats are unsuitable in certain climates.
"To reduce the financial burden on missionaries and their families, elders who are called to serve in missions identified by the church as having hot climates will no longer be required to purchase or wear suit coats,"according to the Mormon Newsroom blog.
Missionaries will be notified if they fall into this category when they receive their call. A list of areas that will be affected by this change can be found on the Mormon Newsroom blog.
