While it's improper to use a flag as clothing, it's perfectly legal and
proper to use fabric with red and white stripes and with white stars on
a blue field as clothing, drapes, or other decorations as long as it's
not a flag per se. I have two different neckties with stars and stripes
on them. At the same time, I've seen some of the sort of clothing you
have described and would agree that, from a fashion standpoint, it's
kinda tacky.
