In fiction, clothes no longer make the man (or woman)? (Reblogged from Jaylia -- "Reflections")

A New York Times blog piece by LEE SIEGEL on the changing role of clothes as a tool for revealing character in fiction. For Homer, Byron, Austen, Flaubert, and F. Scott Fitzgerald what a character wore told us something, but in the era of the Gap, H&M, Mango, and Abercrombie & Fitch how much does what we wear reveal about us?
