On the subject of dress almost no

Dress has never been at all a straightforward business:  so much subterranean interest and complex feeling attaches to it.  As a topic, it is popular because it is dangerous – it has a flowery head but deep roots in the passions.  On the subject of dress almost no one, for one or another reason, feels truly indifferent:  if their own clothes do not concern them, somebody else’s do.  ~Elizabeth BowenOPV
