Section 1. About Clothing

Good deportment cannot be separated from proper clothing, and is the first condition to be considered when acting with propriety. If clothing is not neat and appropriate, our whole appearance will be unsuitable. There is no doubt that, in terms of the rules of propriety, the development of clothing regulations have come from the requirements of civilized formalities of any given time. One can know the attitude of people toward practice by their conventions of dress.
