It wasn’t until I got an actual dining table that comfortably seats eight that I started to feel self-conscious about the folded up half-sheet paper towels I’d been setting out as “napkins” for dinner guests for the last decade (do millennials even buy paper napkins anymore?) But senior staff writer Alex Beggs, a longtime proponent of proper cloth napkins, recently convinced me to invest, and I honestly feel like kind of a baller? Like, to be able to offer my guests a square of luxuriously soft, intentionally rumpled stonewashed linen to brush against their lips in between bites? That’s some classy shit—even if we’re eating a bowl of beans instead of a 70 dollar ribeye. — Christina Chaey, associate editor
