first in, best dressed

  1. (Australia) Those who arrive or get in sooner will receive a more desirable outcome.

Usage notes[edit]

Although similar in spirit to first come, first served (also used in Australia), first in, best dressed suggests that better quality (for example, the best seats in a theatre) will be available to those who get in first, as opposed to prompt service.
