Different clothes influence the way people behave
I agree with the idea that different clothes influence the way people behave for the following reasons.
First, clothes can evoke such a feeling that you belong to some community. For example, my high school had a school uniform, so I wore it every day when I was a high school student. Since my school and its uniform were a little famous, some people could recognize that I belonged to the school when I wore it. My school president always told us not to act badly because we were the representative of the school in its uniform. I went to school by train at that time. When I wore it, I never folded legs or slept on the train, while I often did so in my casual clothes. I had to think of my school whenever I did something in the school uniform. As this example illustrates, clothes can evoke such a feeling that you belong to some community and have to act in a proper way.
Second, you cannot behave roughly when you wear such a kind of clothes as kimono, which is a traditional clothes in Japan. For example, I wore Furisode, which is a kind of kimono, for the Coming of Age ceremony two years ago. It had such long sleeves that I had to take care of them paying attention to everything around me. When I sat down on a chair, for instance, its long sleeves would have touched the dirty floor if I hadn’t held them in my hands. Also it limited my movement because it wound around me. I had to walk slowly and with short steps. I think this kind of situation seldom happens in other clothes. This experience clearly shows that you cannot behave roughly in a certain type of clothes.
In conclusion, I definitely believe that people behave differently in different clothes.
