Dressing Up for Dinner

At Town & Country, "How Jackie Kennedy Is Responsible for the End of Restaurant Dress Codes" (via Maggie's Farm).

While we were out to eat last night I saw a group of three at the next table, and the dude — who had like a 1980s "new romantic" haircut (or early 1990s grunge cut), with those ear-stretcher plug-expander thingies on his earlobes — was kicking all the way back, placing his feet on the vacant chair straight across from him.

The first thing I thought was how my dad would have freaked out if he ever saw me do anything like at that at a restaurant, much less at home. He'd have rapped me over my knuckles with the back of his dinner knife!
