why seersucker matters In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Polonius observes that “the apparel oft proclaims the man.” The post-Elizabethan translation is, “Clothes make the man — and woman.” Mark Twain later affirmed this, adding, “Naked people have little or no influence in society.” No doubt about it, ever since Adam and Eve started sewing fig leaves together, clothes have been more than covers. They are expressions of who we are and the many and varied roles we play in life. Some clothes are made for work, while others are made for play. Some clothes are made for comfort, while others are made as elegant attire.
