When people are complimented on what they’re wearing, they accept as if it was about them. “Nice tie.” “Thank you very much!” That’s the job of clothes: to get compliments, because it’s hard to get them based on human qualities. No matter how nice you are, nobody will say, “Nice person.” It’s easier to be a bastard and match the colors up.
For men, upon marriage you lose the ability to choose clothing for yourself. “Honey, what do you think? A striped shirt and a solid tie, or a solid shirt and a pair of mukluks? A Beatle wig and a grass skirt? Tell me, because I haven’t used that part of my brain in several years. Why don’t you just choose something, lay it out, and I’ll be in the crib until we have to leave.”
