It is a well known saying in my country and maybe all over the world, that "clothes make a person`s character". What this means is that people who do not know me will immadiately and naturally judge me according to my appearance of which clothes, of course, is a significant part. "A liar in a tuxedo is trusted by everyone," goes the saying on. Indeed, quality clothes greatly increase the person`s trustworthiness as well as atractivity. And since people are well aware of this fact, they just can`t help but behave according to this simple truth.
I can confirm from my own experience that having fine clothes on greatly increases your self-confidence in communication with other people. Of course, it is also a matter of one`s taste what exactly a fine clothing is. It is natural for everyone, however, to assume that whatever he himself thinks attractive will be seen as such by other people as well. For instance, if I am wearing a long coat I consider highly elegant, I am naturally and even unconsciously adjusting my behaviour to the fact that I indeed am elegant. This makes me think that people are going to find me considerably attractive and will show me more respect. Therefore I have far more self-confidence in dealing with them than I would with a leather jacket on instead of a long coat.
A short story to illustrate this point is related with my holliday in England. I was walking around the streets of London with my father, who was dressed in a long grey coat, wearing a hat and smoking a cigar. To my amazement, I realized that some older english gentlement, dressed in a similar way, were nodding their heads towards my father, showing him respect like he was one of them. My father, who can`t even speak English, was equally surprised, but soon he accepted the situation and started to behave like he indeed was a noble british man. It is clear that all of this was caused by the way in which he was dressed in the first place.
That is why I think that different clothes can indeed affect the way people behave often without them even being aware of that.
