I don’t see why they shouldn’t, it’s not as though he’s riding an electric scooter. Would it run afoul of some sort of pride or vanity doctrine?

He's probably Mennonite, not Amish.

Good for him. Imagine coming into n environment so foreign from his experience.

I have a crush on him.

Definitely not Amish.

That stuff is worldly, and wouldn't be done. And I cannot imagine an Amish man owning that shirt or those sneakers. Plus if he's outside, he'd be wearing a hat, straw in the summer, black in the winter.
