Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable
that we have to alter it every six months.
Fashion is what you adopt
when you don't know who you are.
Fashions are the only induced epidemics, proving
that epidemics can be produced by tradesmen.
Clothes make the man. Naked people have
little or no influence on society.
Dressing is a matter of taste, and I've
met very few Republicans with good taste.
If men can run the world, why can't they
stop wearing neckties? How intelligent
is it to start the day by tying a little
noose around your neck?
Men who wear turtlenecks look like turtles.
A hat should be taken off when you greet a
lady and left off for the rest of your life.
Nothing looks more stupid than a hat.
All women's dresses, in every age and
country, are merely variations on the
eternal struggle between the admitted
desire to dress and the unadmitted
desire to undress.
A woman's dress should be like a
barbed wire fence: serving its purpose
without obstructing the view.
Violet will be a good color for hair at
just about the same time that brunette
becomes a good color for flowers.
The leading cause of death among fashion
models is falling through street grates.
I base my fashion taste on what doesn't itch.
Once you accept the universe as matter
expanding into nothing that is something,
wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
Never wear anything that panics the cat.
What a deformed thief this fashion is.
Fashion is something barbarous, for it
produces innovation without reason and
imitation without benefit.
The idea behind the tuxedo is the woman's
point of view that men are all the same, so
we might as well dress them that way. That's
why a wedding is like the joining together
of a beautiful, glowing bride and some guy.
The tuxedo is a wedding safety device,
created by women, because they know that men
are undependable. So in case the groom
chickens out, everybody just takes one step
over, and she marries the next guy.
Change of fashion is the tax levied by the
industry of the poor on the vanity of the rich.
Never despise fashion. It's what we have instead of God.
Being a well-dressed man is a career, and he who
goes in for it has no time for anything else.
When people are free to do as they please,
they usually imitate each other.
