The same goes for the interviewer, of course. If an interviewer greets me in
ragged jeans and a torn T-shirt, then plants his sandalled feet on the desk so
that I can see his filthy feet (which actually happened to me once at a
reasonably large company), I think I have the right to be a little insulted.

Why? IMHO, you'd have the right to be insulted if the interviewer intentionally tried to offend you or otherwise did not respect you as a fellow human being.

This case seems to be more a matter of incompatible corporate cultures - a certain dress standard seems important to you but not to the hiring company. So you aren't a good fit - move on. Why take it personally?
