    “I dress because the police made me.”

    I laughed so hard I (temporarily) forgot how to breathe.

    Yeah, but Franny and Zooey is boring. God, I hate Salinger. He makes me want to punch a baby.
    On a happier note, I agree, “I dress because the police made me” is a fantastic line.

    I went to a philosophy colloquium on fashion once.

    It was weird to sit in a room full of people wearing glasses, and jumpers with pastel coloured shirts underneath arguing that clothes tell us nothing about a person’s personality or interests.

    I’m with Cat on this one. Damned police.

    Did Cat make a reference FF in the 6th panel?

    I have thought a lot about the significance of clothing. It seems to be more a reflection of who you want to be then who you really are. Clothes hide and reveal truths about a person at the same time.

    Jo, please tell me that you come from a place where a “jumper” is a kind of sweater and not a garment resembling a pair of dungarees with a skirt…

    Heck yes I use my clothes to express myself!

    I’ve watched too much Brit TV over the years, I guess. Until I read comments lower down, Jo’s comment left me with an image of a room full of bespectacled, pastel shirter, sweatered natterers turning insignificance into intellectual compost for phd (piled higher & deeper) purposes. With that skirt thing, it got a little weird.

    This one made me pull my copy The Gun Seller off my bookshelf. Then I realized it was written by Hugh Laurie and thus the point was made moot.

    I find clothes thrown away on the side of the road for kerbside collection (Australian thing)
    So I have nice suits and designer clothes, clown pants, togas made of scrap cloth (a wet cotton toga is the best option for a 40°C summer day), and all styles between.
    I was gifted a leather jacket for rescuing a young family, and have an awesome cape and cowl my mum made me for the winters here because I asked nicely. Designed it myself.
    But I keep my stuff in a storage locker and sleep outside.

    What does that say about me…?
