5 Fashion Quotes from Literature

"By a man's finger-nails, by his coat-sleeve, by his boots, by his trouser knees, by the callosities of his forefinger and thumb, by his expression, by his shirt cuffs -- by each of these things a man's calling is plainly revealed. That all united should fail to enlighten the competent inquirer in any case is almost inconceivable." ~ A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle His wardrobe was extensive--very extensive--not strictly classical perhaps, not quite new, nor did it contain any one garment made precisely after the fashion of any age or time, but everything was more or less spangled; and what can be prettier than spangles! ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens "We know, Mr. Weller - we, who are men of the world - that a good uniform must work its way with the women, sooner or later." ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens He looked like an Italian, was dressed like an Englishman, and had the independent air of an American--a combination which caused sundry pairs of feminine eyes to look approvingly after him, and sundry dandies in black velvet suits, with rose-colored neckties, buff gloves, and orange flowers in their buttonholes, to shrug their shoulders, and then envy him his inches. ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot
