    Especially if it ended because you murdered him.

    Because he was inappropriately dressed.

    Indeed, and it felt nice and relaxed the time I went (there were a couple of tourists in jeans and t-shirts and nobody minded). For the record I wore a shirt and (slacks? what do you call those sort-of-like-suit-trousers-but-not-part-of-a-suit trousers?).

    It's really not the end of the world to wear a shirt and tie though, just check the dress code before you go somewhere. If you're really not in a suit and tie mood, go somewhere else. Alternatively if it's somewhere you really want to go, having to dress up a bit won't kill you.

    I don't mind about restaurant dress code IF I know in advance. But I was a bit pissed off when the restaurant didn't like the fact I didn't have a jacket on, and they went and fished out a blazer of their cloakroom.

    The worst thing was that the blazer was minging - had some food stains on it, presumably from the last mug who was forced to wear it, big brass buttons. I went along with it as my colleagues had booked the place for me but I made sure I turned the collar up and rolled up the sleeves, Miami Vice style. I definitely looked worse than if I'd just had no jacket on.

    Could you not simply take it off again once you'd reached the table?

    In fact, could you not have thanked them for it, put it on, walked past them, taken it off, and asked them to hang up your blazer for you?

    I would have used the blazer as a napkin.

    I am surprised anywhere has a dress code these days. I eat in quite a lot of nice restaurants and have never had issues wearing jeans and t-shirts. A dress code just seems so 1970's.

    Were you staring in one of the mirrors in the fruit & veg section at the time?

    That's pretty much the Lidl dress code isn't it?

    This.
    Anywhere that requests that I eat in a jacket can fucking do one.

    As per what I posted years ago, it's an incredibly small amount of places these days, and frankly it's part of the experience. I wouldn't mind dressing up to go and eat in the Ritz just like I wouldn't mind dressing up to go to a wedding or whatever. It's an event.

    This was at Le Gavroche, a good 10 years ago. I would have used the blazer as a napkin if it hadn't already been used as one by the last person to wear it.

    And no, I don't think taking it off was an option. They definitely wanted me to wear it throughout the meal. And as much as I hate pompous codes and rules like that, I was happy to go along with it to avoid spoiling a nice lunch. Besides, I did my silent protest with the cuffs and collar, which looked totally ridiculous.
