Now there's an expression you don't hear today. "Flannel Dance"
Flannel dances originated around the time of the first world war when people weren't required to dress up to go dancing. I suppose today it is 'come as you are' or even, I notice on billboards " Smart Casual." Moving out into the outback it's " No shoes No Service" And in the Northern Territory, I did see a sign which said "you cover your pot or you won't get one of our's!" Of course I covered up immediately.

*for the non-Australian Pot = stomach, also a large glass of beer.
