QUOTES ON CLOTHES

Do not conceive that fine clothes make fine men any more than fine feathers make fine birds.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Bushrod Washington, Jan. 15, 1783

I never leaf through a copy of National Geographic without realizing how lucky we are to live in a society where it is traditional to wear clothes.

ERMA BOMBECK

Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.

MARK TWAIN, Mark Twain's Notebook

I cannot pretend to do sculpture and make a woman the ridiculous pedestal of my pretensions. To render clothing poetic, yes--but one must preserve its dignity as clothing.

YVES SAINT LAURENT, Catalog of the Exhibition Held at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1983

Clothes and manners do not make the man; but, when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.

HENRY WARD BEECHER, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit

Clothes are inevitable. They are nothing less than the furniture of the mind made visible.

JAMES LAVER, attributed, Quote Unquote

Choose thy clothes by thine own eyes, not another's.

WILLIAM PENN, Some Fruits of Solitude

I like to watch the way a model moves in my clothes, the way she gives them life, or if they are wrong, stillborn, the way her life rejects them.

YVES SAINT LAURENT, Catalog of the Exhibition Held at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1983

I find people better looking without clothes than with clothes. You can go to a gym and go to a steam room and you see someone and think, He's really handsome. Then he puts on his clothes. Some weird pants. A thumb ring. Some weird socks. And it's gone!

TOM FORD, Vanity Fair, Mar. 2006

Clothes are never a frivolity: they always mean something, and that something is to a large extent outside the control of our conscious minds.

JAMES LAVER, attributed, Obsessed by Dress

She thought that most women make a great mistake in allowing dress to be the master instead of the servant of their good looks; many women were, she considered, entirely crushed and made insignificant by the beauty of their clothes.

ADA LEVERSON, Tenterhooks

Dressing is a way of life. It brings you joy. It can give you freedom and liberation, help you to find yourself and to move without restraint. Isn't elegance forgetting what one is wearing?

YVES SAINT LAURENT, Catalog of the Exhibition Held at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1983
