Kudos to all the Chicago chaps who passed Docker's "Chivalry Showdown" test this month. Those good folks at the all-American khakis headquarters decided to plant some distressed decoys armed with wobbly file boxes in five high-traffic pedestrian downtowns around the country. Atlanta's Southern gents were the most chivalrous, with only up to 8 people passing the panicky subject before someone stopped to help out. Chicago came in third, ahead of LA and NYC.
