Once the domain of London’s most elegant establishments. Now, undesirable attire will only get you ejected from… er, Tesco.

"Is it the socks?" I ask the concierge at the Ritz, raising my jeans to reveal a pair which - as I knew these enforcers like you to show willing - are practically matching. “No, sir."
How, I find myself thinking, would this scene be viewed by extraterrestrials? I won’t say an alien super-race, because I think the British attachment to formality would baffle a Neanderthal.
I’m not drunk. My credit’s good.
In five minutes’ time, just up the road, at the equally aspirational Brown’s Hotel, I’ll be welcomed with a smile. But I can’t get tea and a biscuit at the Ritz until I hang a
piece of coloured silk around my neck and find some different trousers.
Twenty years ago (when rigid strictures concerning dress were not yet outmoded in our major cities), while researching the subject for my first ever magazine article, I was thrown out of most of London’s prestigious venues including Claridge’s, the Savoy, the Ritz and a dozen restaurants popular with bankers. One wine bar in the City, which had refused me entry wearing brand new overalls, allowed me in wearing a suit which I’d stained with a pint of congealed vegetable soup.
