This is exactly why these traditions will no longer be enforced, but merely paid homage with "jacket recommended." This is why loaner jackets are provided.Let’s face it, in today’s overly sensitive, woke age, no restauranteur wants to be cancelled because he turned away someone for not wearing a jacket, especially if that potential patron was a minority.
There is a classism and elitism to these dress codes, even if totally harmless and part of the fun, that do have distant links to racism -- but all of American history does. All of human history does. In an age where BLM agitators accost people eating brunch because it's "white" and where Band-Aids are seen by some as advocating black genocide, maintaining vestiges of elitist and traditionally white customs cannot and will not escape the woke hammer.
