Uni grads schooled in underwear etiquette


Make sure your underwear fits and is “unobtrusive”, don’t appear “frumpy” or “tarty”, or mention politics, religion or sex at dinner – this is just some of the advice published in a new guide for graduate trainees.

Graduates were told to avoid wearing “crumpled or stained” clothes, not to put salt on food before tasting it and only to pick your napkin off the floor if there is no butler to do it for you.

The guide, compiled by the wife of the Vice-Chancellor of Leeds Metropolitan University, has raised eyebrows, with one academic describing it as “a broth of self-important snobbery”.
