The language of clothes
Before we even speak to someone in a meeting, at a party, or on the street, our clothes express important information (or misinformation) about our occupation, origin, personality, opinions, and tastes. We pay close attention to how others dress, as well; though we may not be able to put our observations into words, we unconsciously register the information, so that when we meet and converse we have already spoken in a universal language.
