Dress standards have hit a new low

I had to look twice at your photo (January 3) of shoppers on Grafton Street. It showed how much accepted standards of ordinary dress have dropped.

In vain did I look for a gentleman in a good wool coat with a tie, or a lady with some pearls and a nice hat. This used to be called the Bond Street of Dublin.

Not any more. People used to dress up to shop here, but perhaps in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland the people have drastically lowered their standards of both behaviour and dress.
