Etiquette And Class Divisions

In early 20th century America, clothes made the man and revealed his social class – “Collarless gentlemen must ride second class.”

Street Car Etiquette 

There are first and second class street cars. Collarless gentlemen must ride second class. Even when wearing a collar, if carrying a burden, one must ride second class. – San Bernardino Sun, 1923
