“I drink as I dress: Chablis”

"I drink as I dress: Chablis” (also “I dress as I drink: Chablis") is a pun on “Chablis"/"shabbily." “i drink as i dress...Chablis” was cited in print in 2002. The joke is mainly known in the United Kingdom.

British restaurant critic Victor Lewis-Smith wrote “ I like to drink as I dress ... Chablis” in a 2005 restaurant review and used the same remark in a 2006 review.

Anyway, for the record, I finally settled for a white Burgundy, because I like to drink as I dress. Chablis.

As for drinks, we’d stayed on the sparkling water except for one glass of Chablis for me, which allowed me the old joke ‘I dress as I drink - Chablis’.
