of style is just as important as the score. Depending on your

“The finest clothing made is
a person’s skin, but, of course,
society demands something more
than this.” — Mark Twain
24 In the early 1900s, women in parts
of the Caribbean were not allowed
to show their thighs in public, which
meant that many times they had to add
extra cloth to their shorts so they’d
drape over the knee.
Nickname given to a co-worker who
comes to the office with wrinkles in
their clothes, mud on their shoes,
coffee on their shirt and Post-Its on
their back. In some companies, they
are called the boss.
Studies have shown, and fashionistas
will agree, that clothes that are dry-
cleaned not only last longer, but they
feel better to the touch than clothes
that are thrown in the regular wash.
So just go to the dry cleaners, people!
