Seams to me

Today I learned that the clothes make the man...

... uncomfortable, aware of himself, conscious of age, trusting, thankful, and proud.

Should there be a picture there?

That being said, there's nothing that makes a man feel more uncomfortable and aware of his age than wearing no clothes.

No. There shouldn't be a picture, because I don't have one. I was writing a response to an experience not a photo.

Such wisdom, spizz, from such a young man!

Although I can't disagree with your experience, I disagree that clothes make the man.

Clothes create and shape moods, of the wearer and observer. The 'man' is going to be who he is, better or worse, no matter the threads. If the man changes based on their clothes, I'd call it a costume.

The reality that old saying gets at is the fact that we are all profoundly shaped by our relationships with other human beings. We are all profoundly shaped by their responses to us. Only sociopaths escape this. For the rest of us, there is a crowd whose positive (or in some cases, negative) response to what we're wearing tells us who we are. Human beings believe the response they get. Overwhelmingly.

And, maybe that's depressing for some. But it's life for all.

dag, I agree, which is why the sentence doesn't end there.

Thanks for weighing in, h&p. I am sorry I still don't have pictures.

Pictures? You want pictures? You just had to ask.
