Cathy 跟同事Adam 正在討論,一個人的穿著是否會對他的精神狀態產生影響。Adam 說,

A: Have you ever heard the saying, "clothes make the man"? It might be truer than we imagine.

C: When a police officer or firefighter puts on their uniform it must affect their psychology. It probably gives them a sense of responsibility and authority.

A: Absolutely. When a judge puts on that heavy black robe it transmits an image of power, but it also serves as a reminder to the judge of the responsibility of their position.

C: I know when I'm wearing a nice suit I feel a lot more confident. If I'm going out for a night on the town and I'm all dressed up I feel a lot better about myself than if I was wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

英語里有一種說法叫 clothes make the man. 相當于中文里說的人靠衣服馬靠鞍。Adam 說,這句老話恐怕比我們想的更有道理。警察穿上警服,消防員穿上消防服,法官穿上黑色長袍,都會平添一種使命感和權威感,Cathy 說,她每次穿西裝,也會倍感自信,還說,晚上出去吃飯消遣時,如果 dressed up 精心打扮,就會自我感覺更好。Cathy說的, go out for a night on the town, 是一種固定說法,意思是出去吃飯,喝酒,看節目,消遣。

A: Yeah, I think everyone recognizes that part about the power of clothes....but that's not exactly why I wear a tie to work every day.

C: You wear it because you think it makes you smarter.

A: Yes. I think putting on a shirt and tie actually affects the way my brain works.

C: That's a very interesting concept!

A: My eyes look down and see what I'm wearing and my brain gets a reminder that I'm a businessman.... and I think the brain responds to expectations.

Adam 說,他每天都穿西裝打領帶,不是給別人看的,更多的是在提醒自己,隨時提醒自己是商界人士,這樣大腦就會做出反應,做出的事,說出的話都會更加得體。

C: It's kind of like an actor trying to play a role...you have to have the right costume!

A: I think that's a good way of expressing it! I'm sure it's much harder for actors and actresses to get into character before they put on the right costume.

C: Yeah....but after the clothes and the makeup go on, they look in the mirror and their brains are able to shift into the role.

A: The symbolic meaning of a tie is "business" and so for me it's an identifying symbol that I think affects both how others see me and how I see myself.

C: Interesting.....hmm.....maybe I should start wearing a suit.

這就跟演員穿上戲服,才能進入角色一樣。Adam 覺得,這樣比喻恰如其分,that's a good way of expressing it. 演員穿上戲服,化好妝,看著鏡子里的自己,他們的大腦就會做出反應,help them to shift into the role. 幫他們進入角色。Adam 最后說,西裝領帶,對他來說就是一種定位的象征符號,不僅影響到別人對他的看法,也會影響到他自己的精神狀態。 Clothes make the man, 也可以說,you are what you wear, 人靠衣服馬靠鞍。

Although I've realized that the concept in the program is quite reasonable, I still don't have the courage to wear like that because if you do wear that way, the colleagues around you will gossip about what you wear, and you will feel embarrassed when you hear them talk about you. At least, most people in our company won't dress that way either.
作者:yafeg
I think other's gossip shouldn't be a burden on your heart, if you keep your own style and that's really helpful to your business and attitudes ,others may not so boring to discuss you, then your behavior will be approved of.

clothes make the man .i agree with it.
thats a reasonable point, but in some kinds of company, like IT , former colthes may not suitable for them, because they need a more relaxed enviroment, so maybe some casual colthes are more suitable. any way, its just a exception, i agree the concept of this article.

Yes
作者:lixinming913
personally speaking,I believe "clothes make the man" is a complex concept,which is not telling you to dress up a special style,but emphasize the proper style.we have to pay attention to what is real meaning of you are what you are.if you are afraid of others' gossip, you need find a cloth more proper.for example ,if you go out for wedding banquet, you have to choose a formal dress,and the important thing is better not to rob the bride's focus.in one word, clothing is a knowledge for us.
作者:bella
I want to tell you a story about my experience. The last day in 2014, I and my boy-friend went to Wolrd of Window , he always asked me to take photo ,but I refused him. At the beginning, I had supposed that I shouldn't be able to go there, so I didn't do any preparation,I don't take a shower, don't made up and don't wear beautiful suits so that I seem to lack self-confidence
