There probably never was a time in the history of civilization when so much attention was given to the matters of dress as in the present day. To be sure there have been periods in which the wealthy and royal classes were clad in extravagant finery, but during those same periods the peasants and laboring classes were known by their garb which was barely sufficient to protect them from the elements. In our modern civilization when so much thought is being given to efficiency in all lines of work, we are coining to realize that our consideration of efficient management should also apply to our habits of life. This is especially true in matters of clothing. Aside from the attributes of gentleness and kindness there is perhaps nothing which is so indicative of personality as ones clothing. This is sometimes interpreted by the superficial thinker to mean that costly clothing and striking effects are marks of good taste. However, this is not true. The really well dressed person is the one whose apparel does not detract from his personality. Clothing should not be designed to attract attention by its unusual or gaudy appearance. A fairly good quality of material neatly made up, well fitting, carefully pressed and always immaculate gives the impression of refinement and good judgment on the part of the wearer.
