An Australian restaurant is barring entry to anyone wearing “heavy” jewelry, as well as those with visible tattoos or wearing clothing with designer labels.

Bedouin, located in the Sydney suburb of Double Bay, posted the policy on its front window, the Daily Mail reports.

The goal is to discourage “intimidating appearances,” said Poata Okeroa, co-licensee of the business.

At least one local politician, Woollahra councilor Richard Shields, derided the rules.

“The listed restrictions would preclude a big chunk of the eastern suburbs,” he said, according to the Mail.

But Mary-Lou Jarvis, Woollahra councilor , defending the policy, saying “proprietors of businesses can choose the type of patronage they want.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
