There are some "traditions" that are disappearing ...........
Formal nights. I enjoyed the elegance of the evening when everyone was dressed in their best... Its a sad statement when people feel to put out when they are asked to at least wear a jacket for dinner.
I blame a lot of this on the "baggage fees"being imposed upon the air travelers!!! Formal gear adds weight and baggage- Then the air carrier lays on the fee....These are not the best of economic times and all are pinching their pennies!!
