What are we about? What are we doing here? What is it that this whole massive, seemingly incomprehensible language I choose to call Attire really for?
So, Attire is vital to understanding what it is that we are doing, and how it can move us forward. Could we be as effective a series of societies without Attire? Of course we could. I would however suggest that we would have found something else, equally as variable and subtle to take it's place.
The clothes we clap our backs, the shoes on our feet, the way we cut our hair, how much we work out, and the make up we may or may not use all contribute to what those who see us each day think they know about us. Their knowledge is surely incomplete, and doubtlessly inaccurate to some extent. My point, the point is this: never forget for a moment that what you present to the public world is a story that they are reading. It is up to you to decide whether that story is to your benefit, or to your bane. That might sound selfish. It is, to one degree. It is also about survival, and prosperation.
End of the day, it's still about tribalism.
