The adage “The Clothes Make The Man,” is long attributed to playwright William Shakespeare from his 16th Century play Hamlet and is used as a moment of comic relief by the character Polonius in the play. The phrase is also attributed to author Mark Twain, who during the 19th Century used the term as a forward to the remainder of the phrase “Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
Numerous fashion aficionados today may differ to agree that it’s the “It’s The Shoes That Make The Man,” while others would concur “That It Is The Watch That Makes The Man.” The latter holds some credo with the Suitable Attire For The Perfect Gentleman event taking place this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.
